Mathematics is all around us. It exists in the proportions of artistic works, in the scores of our favourite songs and in the physical structures we live and work in daily. It is also the bedrock of many other subjects including the Sciences, Economics and Engineering and is extremely relevant to subjects like Psychology and Design.
It also gives students a sound basis for progression, including progression to further study of mathematics at AS/A2 level or to the world of work.
GCSE Further Mathematics
This GCSE Further Mathematics specification replaces our Additional Mathematics specification and retains much of the same content. First teaching is from September 2013, and we will make the first awards in summer 2014.
Further Mathematics 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 GCE Mathematics, introducing some of the mechanics and statistics topics that appear at AS/A2 level.
A Level Mathematics
Students of our Edexcel A level in Maths will develop an understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes, develop the ability to reason logically and construct mathematical proofs, and understand coherence and progression in mathematics and how different areas of mathematics can be connected.
Students with a qualification in GCE Mathematics have experienced success in further and higher education as well as careers in accountancy, finance, statistics, computer programming, engineering, medicine, psychology, dentistry and teaching among others.
