    It's just that differentiation and trigonometry make up a rather substantial amount of c3. So it would be like learning an extra half module if you need it all. Do you honestly need to learn all of differentiation and trigonometry? It seems doable but rather odd choice indeed.
    All of that knowledge is assumed by M2

    I assume they will teach the additional knowledge but that is why it is an odd order to teach the material

    Yeah, it is difficult for us to exactly pinpoint what is needed for m2 from c3 and c4, given that i'm not too familiar with edexcel. Perhaps you could buy the recommended textbook and read it to see what it requires.
    What i do know is that you need to know how to differentiate and integrate to a standard of c3, so perhaps from an edexcel c3 textbook you can see what that involves?

    I can't give a definite answer as i havent started m2 as of yet as i will do that after Christmas.
    I do have a c3 book. In fact, I have the C1, C2, C3 and M1 Edexcel modular books. So I will do that exactly, thank you.

    Have you heard of mymaths, its a great website to use for revision, as it goes over the gist of topics in c3 and c4. Perhaps you could use that.
    Yes I have many resources, including mymaths. We all used mymaths for nearly all of secondary school There are many resources which are good for different things. For example m4ths could be used for practice questions and khan academy is good for understanding concepts (for example limits)
