In respect to this, does FSMQ get UCAS points?

**UCAS**. **UCAS points** are awarded on achievement in the **FSMQ**, with 20 **points** for an A, 17 **points** for a B, 13 for a C, 10 for a D and 7 for an E. Unlike GCSEs, it is impossible to **gain** the A* grade, with the highest grade being an A.

Beside above, do you have to declare FSMQ on UCAS? My DC2 is also told that OCR **FSMQ** Maths results are not needed to be **declared** on the **UCAS** form if **you do** not want to **do**. Also, it is a certificate course so not a full GCSE.

In this regard, does additional maths count as a GCSE?

AQA Level 2 Certificate in **Further Maths is** designed to stretch and challenge high achieving mathematicians. It **is** the equivalent to a full **GCSE** course, but it doesn't cover the full Key Skills 4 (KS4) programme of study, which still must be covered.

What qualification is additional maths?

Additional Mathematics. Additional Mathematics is a qualification in mathematics, commonly taken by students in high-school (or **GCSE** exam takers in United Kingdom). It is applied to a range of problems set out in a different format and wider content to the standard Mathematics at the same level.
