Course title: Further Maths  Exam board: AQA  Specification code: 5371 
How will students be assessed? AS level Further Maths is currently unreformed. This means that the course is modular and will be assessed at the end of Year 12 with 3 examinations which lead to an AS qualification. The three modules are Further Pure Core 1, Decision 1 and Decision 2. There is no coursework. All exams are 90 minutes long, have a maximum mark of 75 and contribute to 1/3 of the AS final grade. There is no coursework.  
The assessment objectives are common to both AS and A Level. The schemes of assessment will assess candidates’ ability to:
The use of clear, precise and appropriate mathematical language is expected as an inherent part of the assessment of AO2.
