Further Maths at Post 16, we follow the Edexcel A Level course, with option units in Decision Maths and Further Mechanics.  The subject is best suited to high-achieving mathematicians wanting to go a little further than the standard three A Levels.  Many students opt to sit the AS qualification at the end of Year 12, in order to then focus on their three main subjects.  It is expected that students opting for this course are extremely able mathematicians, and have a desire to work independently and quickly on complex problems.  This is an extremely important subject for anyone considering Engineering or Maths courses at university.
