It's classed as a level 2 certificate, not a GCSE.

Additional Maths is a FSMQ - free standing maths qualification.

Further Maths 'GCSE' is a level 2 qualification.

It is a Level 2 certificate but it counts as equivalent to a GCSE for school league tables. If you take GCSE maths and Further Maths in the same exam season then the better result will count for the school's results. (FSMQ is a Level 3 qualification and dfferent.)

It's not a GCSE by definition but it still effectively counts as the same thing :yep:
