    I personally couldn't do it if I didnt have someone to explain stuff to me, but i know people that have taugh themselves rather quickly. If you can self teach, i dont see why you wouldn'y be able to do it.
    good luck!

    4 months is a long time to learn AS maths. People who take further maths learn the equivalent of AS maths 4 times! in 4 month periods. If you're doing C1, C2, and D1 or S1 then it will be fine. Some people strugle with M1 though.
    As long as you do each module per month, you'll have a month of revision at the end that's how I plan my learning out (I'm doing further maths).

    Good luck!

    edit: maths isn't like biology or physics, you can work through the text book and do no further reading and still ace the exam. Self teaching maths is quite common

    okay cool Umm would C2 take the longest? I would like to do mechanics as I think some of it would be covered in Physics class?

    Thanks for the input everyone. Anyone do M1 and Physics? Is there a big overlap? Could you not revise M1 maths and just learn the mechanics from physics and get a B grade in M1? haha, just wondering!

    Are you trolling us kid?

    You've been asking this quite a lot and the replies are always the same: it depends on your work ethic.

    M1 has overlap with Physics but is much more interesting than what you'd cover in Physics.

    AS Maths is EASILY do-able in 4 months . The Further Maths set in our school did C1 in less than a month , and have completed C1,C2 and S1 already . one module a month you need to work at to allow for a months revision at the end.

    That said , C1 is a fairly simplistic module in relation to the others ( however still difficult ) - i would spend more time on C2 than C1 as C2 is more advanced and you might encounter more problems there. as for S1 i'm not sure , the further mathematicians tell me its ridiculously boring but very easy.

    Good luck !
