    At least it's not D1

    Hoping for full UMS in C3 (gives a bit of leeway for C4)
    C4 is so much easier!

    They're both pretty tough.

    Hey, I enjoy D1 somehow.

    Still, C3 is pretty boring I have to admit, I find it easier than C2

    C4 is equal to C3 in a sense, until you get to vectors and it wants you to find the area of a bloody pentagon

    I find C3 alright... C4 is worse cuz it contains the horrible vectors:ahhhhh:
    But I think D1 is the most boring of all... I don't even consider it as Maths haha

    Agreed. I have to self teach this horrible module, I prefer statistics. Although my opinion isn't the popular one, I don't know anyone else who liked S1.

    Is core 4 actually easier than core 3?

    We've only done vectors out of core 4, and we did that before we even started core 3 as the people doing further maths in our class needed vectors done early for some reason. Didn't find vectors very hard tbh and I'm pretty sure we finished the chapter but we didn't do any exam questions so idk

    It is shorter, but I would say it's harder because of vectors and Integration, but c4 integration isn't hard once you've practised a hell of a lot, I find vectors difficult though. The first 4 chapters are pretty easy. The FM class had to do it early, probably because theres a vectors chapter in FP3 which requires solid knowledge of the c4 vectors.

    da fuk it takes me about a whole week to learn a module to be confident of A* staring the exam.

    some people can just glance at a book for an hour or two and get near full marks?

    I thought I was good at maths, am I wasting my time here?

    No, the vast majority of people can't just glance at the book and get full marks.

    Most people take more than a week, and i doubt anyone can just look at a textbook before and get full marks, unless they already know the content.

    well when I say a week I mean full time study. Obviously if your doing something like 2 hours a day etc a week is pushing it. I try to push for 40-60 hours a week. I don't always manage that but that is what I call a week for studying.

    I really think we all should all turn to hours instead of weeks or months because it causes these confusions.

    My bad

    My FM class prefer statistics and that's probably why we're not doing FP3 and we're doing S3 instead

    The issue with S1 and S2 is that they are pretty easy and still don't cover a lot of skills and things people want to learn that is why people dislike it. I mean I want to learn how to calculate probabilities for more complex scenarios then these modules allow.

    So people think it doesn't go into sufficient detail does not cover enough ground and still leaves much to be desired. Maybe S3 and S4 cover the more difficult useful stuff. However most likely I will probably have to wait to degree level for that or maybe even have to wait to masters:PHD.

    Aww well at least it's easy marks which helps for further maths or if needed additional further maths I suppose.
