    I was thinking of doing the whole A level in one year? Is it possible, along with A2 maths. Or I was thinking of doing STEP


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    yeah it is possible, my friend did C1,2 and D1 in year 12, then over summer he did c3,4 s1, m1 and then in autumn he learnt fp1 m2 s2 and then went on to do fp2 s3 in the final term. he's on target for an A in both. what modules did you just do?

    I did c1 c2 s1, we are gonna do c3 c4 and d1 for A2, but the fm class did that for their AS fm so I would have to do something different for all my fm modules and do what they are doing for their A2 fm. A bit confusing?

    I see, they didn't do their AS FM, they did their A2 single maths. so that means this year they will FP1 M1 FP2/3 and 3 more applieds with a minimum total of 6.

    I would recommend doing C3 and 4 over the summer and then start M1/FP1 as they are fundamental to progressing into m2 and fp2. d1 is a standalone module and you could probably learn it in 2 weeks but if you do it too early you might forget everything

    No they did do their AS fm, it's just that they did M1 and D1 and fp1 but for A2 maths, anyone that doesn't do further mats will do D1 with c3&4 and the fm boys are in a separate class

    ah I see now, well in that case if I were you, I'd self teach fp1 and m1, they're the most important because you need them to start fp2 and m2. if you complete them over the summer and talk to your teacher then maybe you will be able to be moved into a FM class. nothing apart from D2 depends on D1 so you should be fine in doing D1 later on in your own time

    Thank you for your advice maybe doing STEP would be better?

    all the people that I have known to do step have practiced it for a good solid year or more. STEP I questions have a selection of questions that require C1-4 knowledge and the applied questions require M1-2 and S1-2 knowledge, so in order to prepare well for it I would say you will have a hard time. I think taking AS FM would be easiest (so FP1 and two applied modules), then the A2 FM would be second easiest, and STEP would be hardest. unless you already know some of the content that's on the step syllabus (eg integration/differentiation)

    Okay thanks a lot! I'll take some time to think about what I want to do

    However I'm hoping for A*'s in music and maths, if I don't get them I will no longer consider them so easy and as I practice harder than just for the A level music for piano, the practice time is the hardest thing I do. I find it easier staring at a blank page thinking of how to tackle a problem than sitting on a piano stool desperately repeating the same bar slowly with one hand and trying to make my upper arms relax it's the most frustrating problem in the world for me!
