Further Maths GCSE is an extra qualification usually studied alongside GCSE Maths. It is designed for students who are aiming for top grades, and those planning on continuing to study Maths after GCSE. The topics included in Further Maths overlap with both GCSE and A Level topics; meaning it can be a useful qualification for bridging the gap between GCSE and A Level study.
Further Maths GCSE is designed for students aiming for top grades at GCSE, and therefore requires a strong grounding in GCSE Maths, particularly algebra, in order to be successful. Many students may find that there is enough challenge within the standard GCSE Maths qualification but for students who enjoy Maths it can be an excellent way to challenge themselves, and bridge the gap to A Level study.
