A Level Further Maths

Alevel Maths02

Course outline

This course will broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills you’ll develop while studying A Level Mathematics. You can access this course during your second year of A Levels.

Your tutor will discuss entry requirements during the first year of your A Level Maths programme. An early start in the first year is possible for some students depending on ability.

Studying AS in the first year and progressing to the full A Level in the second is a great way to study A Levels.

You will study this course alongside 2 or 3 other A Levels and you will be able to select your chosen subjects when you apply online.

Further Maths will extend your work in pure maths, statistics and mechanics and may include a numerical methods unit or decision maths unit.

How to apply for this course

You can now apply for an A Level Programme starting in September 2021.

You will select your individual subjects when you complete the application.

Applicants with predicted GCSE grades 1 or 2 points below the entry requirement for an A Level:

If your predicted grades do not meet the entry requirements for either 1 or 2 of your chosen A Level subject choices, don’t worry we will still make you a conditional offer. We advise that you think about a second choice of course as a back-up plan. You can meet with us for a supportive, friendly and impartial discussion to look at other courses that Nottingham College has to offer. For more information contact High Pavement Sixth Form admissions by telephone on 0115 9100 100 or email at feadmissions@nottinghamcollege.ac.uk

Applicants who choose 4 subjects but only have the entry requirements to study 3:

If your predicted grades do not meet the entry requirements to study 4 A Level subjects, don’t worry we will still make you a conditional offer for all 4. At your ‘Get Ready for College’ day you will undertake tasters in your subjects and at this point you can discuss your options with subject staff at the event, to help you finalise your subject choices. Final A Level choices however will be made at enrolment in August when your GCSE results are confirmed.

Assessment

You’ll take exams and produce one piece of coursework.

Progression

If you achieve at least a Grade D in two or more of your subjects, you will progress to the full A Level.

You could progress to a related higher education course such as maths, business, accountancy, science, computing, engineering or economics.

There are lots of careers open to you such as aeronautical engineer, biochemist, veterinarian or chemical engineer.

Additional information

You will need your own scientific calculator. A graphical calculator is also strongly recommended – ask your tutor for advice before buying one.

Students aged 16-18 don't have to pay tuition fees. If you are aged 19 or over, check out our Financial Help page for information on fees and funding!
