Further Mathematics can be passed in one sitting though a lot of people tend to be afraid of it. We would outline some questions that you can use to prepare for your Further Mathematics examination and ensure that you practice more questions after going through the questions here.
The NECO further mathematics examination is divided into different sections and paper two is made up of 50 objective questions and paper II is made up of two parts(Part A and Part B) and candidates would be made to answer a specific amount of questions from each section. This past question can also be used by those who are participating in the NECO GCE examination.
The timetable has been released and those who would write Mathematics as one of their subjects should ensure that they practice ahead with the questions below. We did not outline the instructions below however, note that the first step to passing your NECO Further Mathematics examination is to ensure that you read instructions carefully before you start answering your examination.
