how much harder is c3+c4 compared with c1+2 watch


    At college we did couple of weeks of C3 work and we covered functions (easy - doesn't get more difficult than C1 level until the very end) and intergration (the 3 rules you learn are not difficult but the algebra takes a HUGE step up from C2 making it difficult at first)

    thanks guys what i think i might do is do my C1 exam depending on how i go after 3 months to get this out the way then concentrate on C2 and M1 and i dont think im going to be able to do AS maths after 6 months in the end plus working full time and studying physics and accounting is going to be hard to cram it all in !!

    Vectors where difficult in C4 but everything else just leads on from C2, it's not hard.

    tom, i must say ur as maths results kick ass, yet ur gcse arent as good.
    i did quite well in my gcse's but am no where near the getting the results ur getting in maths.

    how u doin it?????

    People say that but I thought they were fairly simple. It was the integration that caused me the most problems.

    C3 & C4 shouldn't be too much harder but I didn't do very well in those papers in comparison to C1 & C2.

    C1 - 97
    C2 - 95
    C3 - 66
    C4 - 69

    Although this partly because I had enough UMS marks from my January results to afford dropping a few marks.

    ...yes. Well done in your results.
