    i'm sitting this exam in summer (AQA) along with c4.. we've just started learning and i'm finding it ridiculously hard to grasp..

    in c2 i got 86/100, likewise it took me a while to understand...

    i'm just wondering what peoples experiences with c3 are? and how much harder it is than c2? i'm hoping with all this effort i'm putting in it'll start to come to me.

    i understand the majority of the concepts just finalising and pinpointing answers i'm really **** at... :woo:

    C3/C4 are a pretty sizeable step up from C1/C2. you'll find it a lot easier as you do more of it and get used to it :yes:

    also i found C3 a bit harder than C4, but that might be because i put a lottt more last minute practice into C4 than i did C3. :beard:

    C3 is harder than C4. I managed a C in c3 and was very happy with it, but aiming for A in c4.
    It will come together just give it time, but of course a2 is harder than As!

    It's harder than C2, but after a couple of weeks it didn't seem like that much of a gap.
    Now it just comes naturally to me. Though I did get 97/100 in the summer.

    I think C3 is harder than C2, however there's nothing in there that's particularly difficult

    the things I'm having problems with are functions/modulus function and invers trig functions

    I think they're all equally hard at the time you first take them, it's just that by the time you take C4, your maths will be a whole lot better compared with the C1 days..

    If you're sitting it in summer, you'll probably find it gets easier between now and then. I thought I'd never be able to remember all of the trig identities, but with practicing questions they just become lodged in your head.
