    I have been told that I'm doing C1,C2,S1,C3,C4,D1 for Maths and FP1,M1,M2,FP2,FP3 and M3 for Further Maths.I am being taught Core 1 and Mechanics 1 up until chirstmas and the other 4 modules after-I'm a little bit annoyed the Further Maths teacher isn't jumping straight into Complex Numbers because I love them.

    Out of the applied modules Mechanics looks the best followed by Statistics then followed by Decision-Mechanics will probably be the best modules for me because I'm doing Physics AS so there will be some crossover between Physics and Mechanics Modules.

    How can you think Decision looks cool?-most of it doesn't even look like Maths.
    My Further Maths teacher started us off with complex numbers straight away! (Including the induction day)
    They're pretty cool, but it can get rather confusing

    chemical engineering
    Oh, okay, you should be fine then - if you were going to study straight physics, they might have required you to take the mechanics modules, but chemical engineering should be okay without. But yeah, it must be annoying nonetheless...

    You would think they'd teach us Further Pure 1 first but maybe my lecturer thought it was best to get the class understanding Mechanics because I only did it in my Physics Unit 2 and not my Maths GCSE considering we are doing Mechanics 1 and 2 in AS Further Maths we really need to understand the basics of Mechanics straight away with Mechanics 1.Does anyone know if Mechanics 2 leads on from Mechanics 1?

    Hey guuuuys and ladieeeees! Don't think I've posted yet on this thread! Just wanted to say good luck to you all doing A Levels and I wish you all have a very productive and successful year. Work hard and you'll see the outcome be in your fortunes! Started today at a sixth form college that is only in it's 2nd year but have done really well! Taking Biology, Chemistry, Geography and French which I couldn't do at my old school's sixth form -_-. Sad thing is I start from 8:20 and finish at 4:00, it's like a proper school so I have no free periods at all in the week urrrgh oh vells lol.

    Yeah I know that feeling!
    I've only been at sixth form for two days and I'm even tired before I walk past the school gates.
    Yep I went to college last year and was only in 2 mornings a week. Gone from that to 42 hours at sixth form for a fortnight. I need to get used to it haha

    yeah but i still want to do well in physics and m1 would help, s1 doesn't really help with anything im doing. i might just take m1 externally this year as well instead of next year, doing 4 modules this year if i can cope

    Back from Sixth Form, today was ok! I firstly had Double Spanish which was fantastic. I love Spanish and the lesson was enjoyable (although I need to practice being more spontaneous in conversation.) I think I might do the homework we got now because it's not really too bad.

    After that was a free and then English Language. I have to say, I preferred it in yesterday's lesson because it felt more productive. Today didn't feel like we'd really learnt anything new. And then finally was Double French! I felt tired so I think the teacher kept wondering if I understood/was keeping up, but I was ok with it all. French grammar is so much harder than Spanish so I think this weekend I really need to get practising on some more.
