#### Overview

**Do you have a strong interest in pursuing Mathematical subjects beyond sixth form?**

Double Mathematics means studying Maths A level and Further
Maths A level together. It is a course for those with a significant interest in pursuing Maths beyond sixth form and demands a strong overall GCSE profile. Students often take the course because they want to study Maths, Physics or Engineering
at degree level and would find a stronger mathematical background helpful. It can be extremely rewarding for you if you enjoy Maths and are stimulated by the faster pace and greater depth.

• Further Maths is essential for some university courses and is useful for courses in Economics, Computing, Physics and Engineering.

• Both Mathematics and Further Mathematics are assessed through examinations at the end of two years (no coursework).

• Includes both mechanics and statistics content.

** “I loved doing harder questions in
GCSE Maths and wanted more. Learning with other people who have the same passion for maths is fantastic.” **OLIVER, Double Mathematics student
