    Theres no FP4 but there is 'DE' - Differential Equations, which is sort of a hybrid between really advanced pure and mechanics.
    AQA do FP4. I'm doing it this summer.

    I haven't D1 or S2 so I can't tell you how those are, but if you enjoyed M1 or found it easy, I'd definitely tell you to go for M2. Its not at all hard, and you will probably enjoy it if you found M1 easy
    I scored 100 UMS in M1 and loved it, but really struggled on M2 and only got 77. However this might be more because of my lack of subsiduary core material

    I'm in a similar situation to the topic creator. I decided to take AS Further Maths in my A2 year. I've done two of the three exams I need to.

    My AS/A2 Modules for Maths are: C1-4, S1, S2
    My AS Further Maths Modules are: FP1, S3 (done both in Jan) and M1.

    If you enjoy Stats, I'd recommend doing S3 - nothing too difficult in there - probably the hardest thing is continuous distributions with exponentials and working out the median etc from it. Even then, that isn't terribly hard. Plus, I found that S3 helps with S2.

    mechanics and pure are useful for maths/engineering/natsci degrees and decision modules are good for computing and statistics......well everyone hates statistics, altho it's quite easy
    i luv statistics! mmph...i could sit and do hypothesis testing all day!!!!
    call me what you will...
    it really is easy. that said i'm finding s1 trickier than s2, which i thought was quite easy in january!

    hmm, getting mixed messages - never a good sign

    Look, I really recommend that you do FP1, S2 and M2. I did these and, even though january's M2 paper was hard, the material covered is really interesting. as for S2, well read my post above. This is my advice and it's working really well for me at the moment!

    i'm gonna do FP1, S2 and D1, turns out what made my decision is that M2 is gonna be on the same day as a history A2 AND a geography A2

    why do some people do S2 before S1? seems bizarre
