FURTHER MATHS
YEAR 12 STUDENT
Maths is fun but Further Maths takes it to the next Level. It becomes exciting when learning new topics makes you think about things differently that’s what I love about Further maths!
WHY STUDY FURTHER MATHS?
If you are applying to mathematically related courses (engineering for example) at one of the top universities you are certain to require Further Maths. Such advice is, perhaps, a bit unnecessary because if you are considering such courses you MUST enjoy Mathematics. If you do enjoy Maths why not study it in more depth? At the very least it will give you an insight into the difficulties, challenges and beauty of advanced Mathematics.
