FP1 and M2 should be fine to self teach. Not sure about M3 though, might be better to do S1 or D1 instead. Admittedly they're not related to physics (well, S1 has some relevance but not much) but they'll be easier to learn.

It depends how good you are, basically. Last year I self taught A2 Maths, AS Further Maths and A2 Further maths while also studying two other A levels, and achieved A* in both maths and further math, so it's certainly doable.

Wow, clearly you're very mathematically talented! Thanks for your words.

May i ask what FM modules you took and which you would recommend for a Physics/Engineering degree?

I actually found M3 to be one of the easiest to self-teach - I didn't start studying until about 3 weeks before the exam and got 95%+. With my exam board, it was basically SHM - which you'll have done in Physics by that point - and second order differential equations, which were fairly simple once you got your head around them.

My exam board doesn't offer decision, so I took FP1-3,M1-3,and S1-2. My exam board only went up to three modules, though I've seen others which seem to go up to about 5. The priority for Engineering and Physics would certainly be Further Pure and Mechanics.

Fair enough, one of my friends tried to self teach it and gave up quickly. And he was by no means bad at physics or maths (currently in his final year doing physics at Imperial)
