Can I Do A GCSE In Further Maths?Watch
Is there a GCSE in it?
You can do the FSMQ (look it up if you're interested) which is technically not a GCSE, but is basically like Further Maths, and Sixth Forms will take note of it. I'm doing the FSMQ with OCR; I've heard it's the best one (my brother took it with Edexcel, but the book wasn't complete etc.)...
Just as a bit of a warning, schools won't often teach it, so you may find yourself doing it independently... on the bright side, it's very good for your study habits, and the OCR FSMQ is designed for self-teaching! Hope that helps
Look, as far as anybody is concerned they're all basically GCSEs. The IGCSE is without a doubt practically identical to a GCSE. There are some Level 2 qualifications that are a bit "dodgy" but stuff like the AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Maths are absolutely respectable.
AQA offer a Level 2 certificate/IGCSE in Further Maths which is a challenging and worth while qualification but it doesn't count for state school league tables so many schools may stop doing it. This is the one with an A^
OCR offer Free Standing Maths Qualifications (FSMQ), often called Additional Maths and fairly often taken at Level 3 in Year 11 although the AQA one above has been overtaking it in popularity over the past few years.
