Further Maths Support Programme Wales success!

The national Wales enrichment project set in the Maths Department is celebrating last week’s outstanding A-level Further Maths exam results, proving that the Programme has made a significant impact.

Project Coordinator Sofya Lyakhova said: “We are thrilled by the overall success of the Programme in the established FMSP areas and working to expand the Programme in all Wales”.

This year’s Further Mathematics A-level results are again a cause for celebration in Wales and more Welsh students will go on to study a STEM degree with a Further Maths qualification.

The proportion of Mathematics students who sat Further Mathematics A-level reached 13.8%, which is the highest result ever in Further Mathematics in Wales and the fastest annual growth so far. Since the Further Mathematics Support Programme was launched in Wales in 2010 the percentage has risen steadily every year.

The Further Maths Support Programme (FMSP) Wales funded by the Welsh Government currently operates in 8 counties: Anglesey, Carmarthenshire, Conwy, Gwynedd, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Swansea. The Programme supports state funded schools and colleges in the established areas by providing tuition for students who would benefit from studying AS/A level Further Mathematics. The FMSP Wales offers a variety of revision and study events held face-to-face and online for both students tutored by the FMSP Wales and studying Further Mathematics in their sixth-form.

All state-funded secondary schools and colleges in Wales are invited to register with the Programme http://www.furthermaths.org.uk/Eregister.php and express their interest in tuition assistance by contacting the Programme Coordinator Sofya Lyakhova on 01792 602793.
