    No you don't. When I did it the only thing from C2 were some stuff on geometric progessions, the sum of a series and the use of radians, but apart from that it was more of a sound knowledge of algebraic manipulation and stuff.

    good to hear. I already know about radians and a bit of geometric sequences, anything else from C2 that I need to know? or is the rest just new content

    I'm taking FP1 now, and the whole of my class was fast-track maths so they have all done C2. I have not, and to be honest, I am finding it more advantageous, looking at my C2 textbook there are some elements of it present in FP2, so when I come to take my C2 exam I will be ahead of the game
