Elective Mathematics is one of the subjects offered in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in English speaking West African countries: Nigeria, Ghana, Gambia, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Elective Maths is done in addition to Core Maths which is required for all students. The goal of teaching the subject is to equip students who would pursue further studies in fields that require additional mathematics with the requisite mathematical knowledge and facility. It covers most of the topics in A-level mathematics papers from Cambridge though it is a little easier. On the WASSCE examination papers, it is called Further Mathematics Elective).
