    There's only 2, surely you can handle 2 .

    I mean D1 is one of the compulsory modules. I mean..I'd've been okay with him saying that to do Fp3 and M3, you had to have certain prerequisite's but.... oh well
    Just do the D... it isn't hard

    Does anyone have experience with A2 AQA Further Maths? I'm really desperate for an A*, but I've heard that the A2 FP units are really hard. I' doing FP2 and FP4, alongside M2.

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Hey, I'm going into year 12 this year... I'll be with aqa for f.maths, I'm doing FP3 next year! :lol: and FP2 but haven't covered that yet...

    M2: Has extra topics that the other boards have on M3 so we need circular motion and that, I haven't covered it all so couldn't say.

    FP2: I find harder than FP3 content wise... But it's okay actually! Only thing I find "hard" are the easy things like series and proofs!

    FP4: really nice :teeth: vectors are good, and so are matrices. But determinants with factorising and that is meeeeeh

    Work hard and you'll be fine, high boundaries though I've seen!:eek:

    We'll be sitting 2 same modules I think

    I could try, but I'm not sure if there'll be enough room this year.

    In any case, I've heard that although D1 isn't that difficult, D2 is genuinely hard. Can any one else verify this?

    I found D1 much harder than D2.

    Aw I think some of them definitely did! Some I really understood and they seemed pretty cool people, but God - when the same people don't stop answering questions during tutorials, I want to punch them. :eek:
    :yes: that's uni for you Oh wow, remind me never to answer questions around you :rofl:

    I've found D1 very hard, but possibly due to bad teaching. I have heard that D2, whilst interesting, is pretty hard though.

    Just randomly browsing through stuff..

    No, I'll most likely leave out S4/ D1/ D2 and only take AFM to AS.
    Does your school do any Ds Felix?

    Depends on how you handle it, go fast and rough with it and D2 will get a lot harder.

    Would you say that they stick lower caliber teachers with the easier modules?

    Sort of. In D1, there are lots of similar things that are easily confused. In D2 it is really obvious what you need to do on every question.

    Fair enough. Like how in S1 there's loads of topics and in S2, it's just distribution, afaik?

    I'm thinking of doing 4 A2 next year so I'm not looking forward to all that work.

    And unlucky with D2, but it's very easy to **** up on decision, one simple arithemetical error and you lose lots of marks.
    Good luck. And I know.. But pretty much all of my final answers ageed with a couple of the people in my class who no managed 100UMS each.. Might get my script back..

    Hmm, good question. My D1 teacher was actually the head of dept, but I know from other subjects that the better teacher teachers the harder stuff (eg. exam content), while the other is left to teach stuff like coursework, which is easier to both teach and edit if not up to standard.

    What's the point of doing M5, for non mathmos and physicists?
