    Hi,

    My module scores are:
    C1: 95 C2: 88 C3: 74 :mad: M1: 80 :mad: M2: 83 S1: 93 FP1: 83

    I've got C4,S2,S3,D1 and the horrible FP2 left, would you say I could
    get AA with ease, cos I don't know how difficult S3 or D1 are.

    Will FP2 take a lot out of me?

    Thank you

    D1 is the easiest, but the exam is a lottery, if you get one thing wrong in a question and don't realise it, its quite possible to use that mistake to get the whole question wrong if you see what i mean.

    S2 im doing right now and so far i find it easy, same as S1, but a bit less boring.

    C4 is really dependent on your C3 grade. did you get 73 because you actually found the material hard or other circumstances. If you found it hard, then C4 is harder, but as with all maths modules --> past papers + questions = good grade

    i cant tell you about S3, im doing M1, M2

    FP2 im doing now and polar coordinates are ******* annoying, the rest doesn't look that hard.

    D1 is extremely easy but to get high UMS is rather difficult due to high grade boundaries.

    The new FP2 is easy.

    Not sure about S3.

    I got the 74 in C3 because the grade boundaries were crazy: 67/75 was 80 UMS like wtf, adding on I can't do C3 trig cos its guesswork and tedious. Plus I forgot a formula in the exam mucking up a 5 mark question. Im finding C4 easier than C3, cos there is no trig, well other than integration has a bit, but no REAL TRIG

    an AA is definitely achievable if you remember to revise and do past papers. is there a reason why you're not doing FP3?

    Yeah the reason is cos Im actually not good at maths, kinda a scrape you could say. Im not as accurate as I should be :rolleyes: and probably not as mathematically gifted :rolleyes:

    Plus if I did FP3, I would fail it and wave my A in Further Maths goodbye.
    FP2 is bad enough lol :yes:

    nah the FP2 is easier than the FP3, it used to be harder but edexcel mixed up the content of the modules to make it easier. It's still pretty nasty though, haven't even looked through the FP3 :p:

    why, does no one at your school take it????
    Its the easiest A level to get an A in tbh, I need like 47/100 in C4 to get an A in A Level Maths, a grade E I think

    I'm doing FP3 atm, and although it's hard, my maths teacher says it's pretty much at the same level as FP2.

    yeah TSR is kinda addictive, so many friendly and helpful people. Try to stay clear before exams lol :p:

    That SOHCAHTOA **** is minor, the trigonometry at A Level Maths is horrible, hence my C3 score.

    For example sin has an inverse called cosec and like there are crazy identities like 1+tan^2 theta (the angle) = sec^2 theta
