This replaces GCSE Additional Maths which ceased to be awarded after June 2014.
It 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 A’level 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.
This is a unitised course with two units. The full specification can be obtained by clicking this link – GCSE-Further-Mathematics-Specification
