Right now I am doing 4 A levels - I am in my first year of sixth form - Maths (C1, C2, M1), Physics, Chemistry and Economics. Without a doubt I am dropping Economics next year, however my chemistry is terrible and I am never going to get a good enough grade in it. So I asked my teacher if I could drop those two subjects and pick up A2 Further Maths (Edexcel) for my final year. I'll have the spare time of dropping two lessons plus frees. I enjoy maths and doing past papers aswell as find it interesting. However my teacher said that doing 9 exams next year would be too much stress for me (3 done this year and then 9 more to make the 12 modules),however he did say I could potentially just take the AS without dropping any other subjects.
What I want to do over my holiday and in spare time is try and teach myself FP1 and possibly even D1. I have a programming background and think i'd find most of the concepts in D1 easier than other people. I also want to tackle FP1 as I have begun to come across topics from it in programming; matrices for example. So when I get back to school I can try and persuade them to let me take the A2 course.
So, is there any online resources to self teach these modules, i'll probably order or ask to borrow a text book from school, is there anything else I should be looking for.
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
