1. So I'll be starting my A2 this year and I've done Edexcel AS pure math and was wondering FP2 or FP3? I want to keep my A2 as simple as possible but I literally know of no one who has done FP3. I would just like to know what you guys find easier and why
thank youu
2. I think you can take fp3 without fp2, at least according to this
Thanks though

3. You can do either Fp2 or Fp3.

I personally found Fp3 easier. It varies but I think most find Fp2 easier.
4. I understand that fp2 is based on c3, is that also true for fp3 or does it consist of completely new topics
Thank youu, btw

Thank youu, btw
Ch.1 Hyperbolic Functions (new)
Ch.2 Further Coordinate Systems (new)
Ch.3 Differentiation (based on C3)
Ch.4 Integration (based on C4)
Ch.5 Vectors (based on C4)
Ch.6 Further Matrix Algebra (based on Fp1)

Roughly. There's crossover.
6. I have done both but I have found FP2 to be slightly easier, I think it really depends on your strengths and weaknesses in maths.
