    your other subjects are very logical...well the sciences anyway - this hints you have the right frame of mind for maths - so go for it:cool:

    one question - why on earth have you decided to do geography:eek: - i'm sure you'll end up regretting it! i hated AS and A2 geography sooooo much; i should have never took it in the first place! i had to do two coursework assignments for edexcel B, which feckin took forever, and the subject was more time consuming studying for than , than maths, further maths and physics combined:mad: - and i might have sacrificed an A in further maths for crappy geography...aghhh - will be really deperssed if that happens!

    I've jst done the whole A2 math course, and i enjoyed it. If u get the choice between M1 and S1 tho, do M1 if ur doing sciences esp phys, you will enjoy M1 more methinks, i got Ds in my tests, but once you develop that way of thinking, M1 can even be enjoyable personally i hate S1 and think its boring as hell.

    very much agree with you on that - they made me to S1 and S2 instead of M5 and M6:mad: - my class were fuming!

    Surely your school can't be that bad if they can teach you up to m4?
    Mine couldn't teach us m2 and the m1 teaching wasn't very good.
    Not that i'm complaining though, as long as I make the grades I don't really care about the teaching in my school

    i'm not complaining either:rolleyes: - wll to some extent! - but my school does not let us sit exams that are not taught in school! so if i self taugght M5 and M6, i'd not be allowed to sit it in my shool no matter how good i was at it! - bit of a stupid system if you ask me,

    browse through the S1 and M1 textbooks...see what sort of stuff you personally like and do the mod based on that...there is no substitution than self-researching your interests. - i'd do m1, that that is me...you may well hate mechanics, so do your own research!

    Ah then I can see your point! It does seem a bit inflexible of them. They should know that as you applied to top universities you're more than capable of taking responsiblity for your education.
