#### Overview

Students that are contemplating studying Mathematics or a related subject at University should seriously consider also taking the Further Mathematics AS or A level.

This is an optional addition available to those studying the Mathematics A Level. It is recommended only to the most able students and those wishing to study a Mathematics related degree course in the future. The course can be studied as an AS level (one year only, examined at the end of year 12), or as a full A level over two years.

We can also support those students who need to sit STEP and AEA/MAT/TMUA papers for entry into some universities.
