    Salaam guys,

    I just finsihed FP3 and now beginning to do FP2, but as I started to revise for the AEA i was wondering how useful are these two modules for a maths degree at uni?

    Will it be benefitial to me greatfully?
    Also what part of the core and further pure modules will be most useful for a degree in maths?

    thanks very much just wanted to clarify that

    Pretty much all of the Core stuff will be useful for a Maths degree at any university. However, Further Maths isn't essential for most universities, but if you're doing FP2 and FP3 (and AEA!) then I'd imagine you'll get a pretty good head start when you start your degree (since some of the Further Pure content will be repeated in the first term for those who haven't done Further Maths).

    As far as I know, the further maths is taught to everyone in the first few weeks/semester of the first year of a maths degree (seeing as some schools don't offer FM). It's not necessary, but it does show you have an interest in the subject, and is fun to do
