    Or do I have to do them in order?

    I'm doing an As in FM in the summer and i'd prefer to do M3 as it overlaps ALOT with the Physics i've already done.

    Trust me, even with the overlap from Physics you'll find M2 a lot easier.

    No you don't have to do them in order I don't think. What's your exam board? M3 hardly relies on M2, and yh alot of it is covered in physics

    What exam board did you do?
    MEI M2 is pretty straightforward.

    Out of the 15 modules I've done, the only ones I'd describe as "killers" would be M3 and M5. What makes you think that M2 is so hard? It's basically an appendix to M1.

    M3 is very enjoyable, though.

    (This is all based on the assumption that everyone involved is on Edexcel.)

    OK, well be warned that M3 is a pretty difficult and long module compared to M2. Also, it probably overlaps less with A-level physics than M2, as the questions set in M3 on SHM and circular motion are a lot harder.

    Interesting.


    I'll have a word with my Maths and Physics teachers and see how it goes.


    Cheers.

    I've done both M2 and M3 with MEI. The techniques you use in M2 will definitely help in M3, but I'm not sure if you can just skip to M3. However, doing M3 first and then M2 might make M2 look really easy (that's what I did with M2, I started lessons for that, found it quite hard, but it made M1 so much easier!).

    BTW nice avatar tommm "Wonga!"

    I've decided to do M3 and M2 and not FP2

    You can do what ever modules you want, all of them if you wanted to! 3 of them equals an As and 6 = A-Level. Extra ones can give you UCAS points etc and more stuff to put on your qualification (Or further maths)

    Good choice! I just got my m2 and m3 results back today, got As in both of them and now I only need a D in Fp2 for a A in Further Maths A-Level. YAY :woo:
    M3 is hard, no question about it. But if you like mechanics, it's really good! MUCH EASIER THAN FP2/FP3. All that horrible calculus!
