    Definitely. If you we're good at M1, M2 should be fine

    There isn't a huge amount extra on M2. As long as you have someone to ask for help if you get stuck you should be fine.

    I basically taught myself M2, as I was the only one at my school doing it. I had about a total of 2 hours contact time with a teacher for it - getting past papers/extra questions etc. It's not much harder than M1, so if you did well in that you should be fine

    I taught myself M1 and M2 using the Edexcel books and got 95 UMS in M2, so you can do it. Particularly if, as you say, you know M1 very well.

    Agreed with above comments, though I did AQA, I don't know how different it is. Do you do physics? Because that will probably help

    I did OCR MEI and apart from a few tricky bits with frameworks, I'd say it'd be pretty straight forward to self teach it...Just gotta stay disciplined I guess.

    If you are good at M1 and doing physics then you should find self-teaching M2 alright!

    Mind you though the jan paper last month was extremely tricky but it doesn't stop you getting an A in june :wink2:

    I don't know any other useful resources, but have you looked through any past papers yet? I always found that the mark schemes used to help me. Here's the link in case you haven't.
