I believe P6/FP3 is easier than P5/FP2 and probably a bit more interesting.

So fp3 is actually easier than fp2??
Ok, put it the other way. How big is the difference between C4 and fp1/2/3 ?

It's more of a natural progression than a jump. Going from C4 to FP1 shouldn't be much more difficult than going from C3 to C4. If you were getting comfortable A grades in Mathematics that shouldn't change in Further Mathematics. FP2 is probably the hardest pure module though.

It's not that much harder but the integration and coordinate geometry questions are probably a little longer and more involved than what you'll have done in previous modules. Once you've done lots of practice though you'll be able to spot the tricks and so on easily.

fp3 is easier than fp2 and quite alot of fp1 but also quite boring. The matrices...eurgh. The proof section looks quite good though and complex numbers getting deeper can't be a bad thing, fp1 did whitewash it a bit.

I find fp3 quite boring, fp2 is probably the most interesting module out of ftp1-fp3..I wouldn't say one of them is particularly more difficult than the others.

I don't think it's possible to use the terms "fp3" and "easier" in the same sentence. Fp3 is diabolical. It is literally THE WORST. Fp2 and Fp1 are pale in comparison to that monster of a module... I mean, my GOD! How is it easier?!

FP1 is very easy.
FP2 is nice but boring.
FP3 is also nice(imo harder the FP2) but very very interesting with the vectors and matrices etc!
