Study Further Degrees in:
This is a linear subject which means it is examined externally entirely at the end of year two. There will be end of year exams in June of your first year which will determine your progress and whether you can enter the second year. During the two years of study, you will be regularly assessed under test conditions to practise being able to understand and respond to the questions asked in the correct time allocation so that you are fully prepared for the final exams. There is an assessment calendar for A levels which includes timed assessment every 4 to 5 weeks. Feedback gained from these assessments will help you to develop your skills, target your revision and where necessary enable us to provide additional support.
You can only study A Level Further Maths if you are already studying A Levels Maths.
You will need an APS* of 44 and 5 GCSEs at grades 5/C or above, plus a grade B/6 in double science or a single science, and a grade A/8 in maths.
APS Calculator: The APS (Average Point Score) of 40 = an average of grade C in all GCSEs taken. BTEC equivalents are not acceptable.
