Further Maths Watch
it depends on which subject you want to study at uni, furthermath is essentially compulsary if u want to study math or to a lesser degree engineering or physics. but universities certainly dont consider math and further math less competitive
I want to study a finance or economics related subject, preferably at a Russel group university would further maths be advantageous? Or would it be considered insufficiently broad?
further math would definetly be advantageous , in fact to study econ at cambridge you need 2 interviews one of them is an econ one and the other is with the math department. so further math would be better than history or geo to study econ or finance. also how does your school do further math, do they do a level math in year 12 and further in 13 or do they do math and further math at the same time so as math and as further in year 12 and the a levels in year 13. you could always pick 4 and drop one whenever you want during year 12
Doing further maths guarantess you an A* in maths. Universities arent allowed to ask for it as a requirement since some schools dont offer it but it is essential for maths-related degrees.
In my school if you opt to take further maths you start both the maths and further maths course in year 12. Is it worth doing 4 a levels then including maths and further maths? Or would the work load be too overwhelming?
