GCSE Further Mathematics

This GCSE Further Mathematics specification replaces our Additional Mathematics specification and retains much of the same content. First teaching is from September 2013, and we will make the first awards in summer 2014.

Further Mathematics involves studying mathematics at a level beyond GCSE Higher Tier. It can act as a stepping stone that gives students a sound basis for studying GCE Mathematics, introducing some of the mechanics and statistics topics that appear at AS/A2 level.

Further Mathematics can also help students progress to other studies that require mathematical knowledge and skills, for example higher level science, geography, technology or business.

Please note that this is now a unitised specification. This means that students have the opportunity to sit one or both units in the first year of teaching.
