    I was just wondering if anyone had experience of what modules to take
    I've already covered c1-4 and m1 and m2, and our teacher is planning to do fp1-3 and m3-5 with us, but has said we may find it useful to self study s1-3 or d1-2 or combinations of the two. Any thoughts?

    What are you planning on doing at uni? I've heard stats, though crap, is often needed in sciencey courses, at least up to S1 anyway.

    Doing up to M5? You lucky sod. lol. Wish I was doing that. We're doing M1-3 and S1-2.

    Yeah, doing up to M5 is lucky, the set applied modules for further maths are S1-2, D1 and M1-2, I mean that is just pathetic really, nothing with even a 3 in it.

    D1 you really have no need to study unless you arte going into computer science or something....statistics has some useful bits in there, analysing data and making hypotheses is always important

    A few of us here have taught ourselves D1/D2: it's not too difficult. For £20 you can get the 2 texts and see if you fancy the content! I think that studying modules yourself could demonstrate your capacity for independent learning, which could be useful...

    Browse past threads; there's quite a lot of discussion of which modules to take.

    Planning to do a maths degree. The school can provide all the books I may need. If I did do any self taught ones I would still attend lessons and do upto m5. It just apparently (and understandably) s1, s2, d1 or d2, are probably gonna be a hell of a lot easier than the later mechanics modules

    Absolutely. From experience, S1, is needed for a grounding with most courses at uni. Do D1(although i didn't get the chance to do it myself), i've looked over some of the material and past papers. I'd do it, so that you have another string to your bow when analysing problems, since it's a logical unit.
    Yes, i concur, you're a lucky sod to be able to have a teacher to take you up to M5!
