3. FP2 gotta be the one.

This. FP2 is much harder than M3, not sure about how FP3 compares.
5. M3 is generally the easiest, but theres no textbook for it (according to my teachers), so if you always make crappy notes and usually revise from textbooks instead It might not be the best idea to do it.

This is a fair point, although I'm fairly sure that there are no AQA "textbooks" for any of these modules. There are however notes, online, provided by AQA which include excercises and walkthroughs.

Not sure if you know/knew about those OP.

Those are full textbooks, they are exactly the same format as the AQA FP1 book, only they don't print it because so few people take FP2,3,4 that it isn't commerically viable, so you have to print it off yourself.
8. i always heard that M3 was the hardest, i done fp2 and found it okay and i am currently doing fp3 and M3. all my teachers say FP3 is the hardest
9. i'd say m3 was hardest, but we did that in year 12 at our school, so that may be why
fp3 is much easier then fp2 if you can do differential equations
10. what is longer; a piece of string, a length of rope or some yarn?
11. hard is very subjective..... depends where your strength lies
12. Obviously yeah, it depends where your strengths lie... FP3 is mostly differential equations, and so if your good at remembering lots of different methods then I guess its easier - its a bit of a standout. FP2 on the other hand is more of an extension to FP1, or course with harder exam questions then FP1 as well as harder maths itself I guess. (Never done/not going to study M3)
Personally, I'd much rather do FP2, the maths is much much better, it just feels more rounded as you probably cover slightly more topics in less detail.
13. Most people I know find FP2 harder than FP3, not sure how M3 compares
14. I found FP2 most difficult, then FP3 and M3.
But then again Mechanics seems to be my strong point.
