Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics (8365)

AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Maths is a unique qualification designed to stretch and challenge high achieving mathematicians who

  • either already have, or are expected to achieve the top grades in GCSE Mathematics
  • are likely to progress to A-level study in Mathematics and possibly Further Mathematics

It complements GCSE Maths by encouraging students' higher Mathematical skills, particularly algebraic reasoning. It builds on the Key Stage 4 curriculum and is intended as an additional qualification to GCSE Mathematics, rather than as a replacement. It doesn't infringe upon AS Level Maths but does help students prepare for the extra rigour required in further studies at Level 3.
