Further Maths is a challenging qualification, which both extends and deepens your knowledge and understanding beyond the standard A Level Mathematics. If you enjoy mathematics, it provides a challenge and a chance to explore new and more sophisticated mathematical concepts. You will also study further applications of mathematics in mechanics, statistics and decision mathematics.
