Im on OCR if that helps.

Its not that im bad at maths since ive got A in every module in Maths and further Maths AS just fp3 driving me crazy.

I'm mostly finding vectors hard... so many formulae to remember! -.-
3. Ye exactly same, and groups as well, but i reckon thats cos our teacher wasnt that great.

Theres loads of stuff to remember as well with like de moivres theorem nd stuff.

Just learn to derive them. If you can understand where these formulas have come from, vectors are actually pretty easy.

Essentially it is just 4 topics you need to know (with a little depth) so organising any revision should be fairly straight forward. Complex numbers get a little tricky so watch out for those. Complex numbers seem to be my weak spot at the moment.
5. Ugh, this just pokes me in the back, as I have o decide between FP3 and M2/3 next year and my teacher is suggesting FP3... :/

If you understand mechanics, M2 will be much easier than FP3. Also why/how would you M3 without M2?

Oh ill be doing it in order, its just I have other choices like S3...etc...

If your really really really good at maths take FP3

but if you like mechanics do M2, i dint really like M2 and got 90%, but i put more effort in than others. Bit strange cos i got 84% in M1.
Also dont go by ur FP1 score.

Im finding FP1 difficult...
I would normally do Mechanics without a pause, but my teacher says FP3 has methods that will really help me at degree level (if i chose physics or eng rout)
Also he said its better respected...Ugh IDK why im even bothering people on here about it.

in all honesty if you find FP1 difficult i would recommend stopping at AS, because it gets much harder than that

Great advice. Its hard to do so dont do it.

Well if your going to put the effort in then go for it but if that a level isnt necessary dont do it, i guess im the kinda person which if i find something i struggle at, i avoid it, so i avoid essays at all costs hence me dropping geography
