    I am meant to do D1 on the 17th and have sufficient notes from a friend but haven't looked over them before. I would start now but my grade doesn't technically matter so I'm focusing on more important subjects... do you guys think it is possible to go through all content and do some exam practise in just the three days prior to the exam and still get a decent mark? Can fall back on *hopefully* good FP1/D2 marks too.
    I got 100 UMS in pretty much all 6 A level maths modules so am relying on the hope that ill find it really easy... is it too much of a risk?

    Yes, you are able to.

    Whether you could do it sufficiently depends on you - you may find it incredibly boring (which is expected of D1), so doing every chapter in 3 days could depend on your dedication.

    It's also not very attractive to have 0 UMS on any module, so you should have a go to get at least a decent grade. It's relatively quick to pick up and it would help to have a text book on you as to not depend entirely on your friends notes! I know my notes for D1 are garbage; it isn't really a note taking module, just a practicing module.

    If you're sure you won't be affected by your grade in it at all, it doesn't matter so much. Grinding it in 3 days could help you get into the rhythm of hardcore revision for C3&4, though.

    Im doing the same, my further maths grade doesnt matter at all, so im just winging it. Its really not very hard, if you do one or two papers it should be fine
