Additional Mathematics is a UK qualification pilot scheme in its final year of implementation for a GCSE level qualification in mathematics which is applied to a range of problems set out in a different format to the standard Mathematics GCSE. This has been formed due to the standard secondary schools in England offering two GCSE qualifications in Science and English but only one in Mathematics and as Mathematics is also a core subject it needs to be viewed on the same level as the other two core subjects (Science and English.)
