    My school does it kind of weirdly; I'm in Year 12 but cos I'm doing FM I do an A2 module (C3 if that means anything to you) this year and that's the one I'm having problems with, the actual FM bit (FP1) is fine! It's conceptually kind of strange at first (matrices, complex numbers etc.) but it's alright once you get your head round it personally I tend to just use past papers to revise from (not that I've really started revising yet )
    Further maths is much harder than normal maths due to the pace we go at.
    once i learn one chapter in normal maths i learn 2 chapters in further maths.
    I had my jan exams (still in as year) had C1 which i learned in normal then m1and m2 which i learned in further. June exams im learning c2 in normal and C3 + C4 in further. so for me the pace is double the speed and as you can see the modules are also harder.

    English Literature. Only one person in the A2 class got over a D grade. I'm now nervous as to what awaits me in my AS exam later this year.

    I don't know why everyone's being so hard on maths - it's difficult but not impossible! The key is just understanding the mechanics of it, then past papers past papers past papers!!

    Maths and Chemistry are my favourites.

    Biology is okay - not difficult to understand the concepts it's just a massive load to memorise - Biology AS is basically "How much can you remember in a year".

    English literature is the bane of my existence. It completely subjective, you could get a U for what another examiner would mark as an A, there is no way to revise for it and I really regret it. I learnt at A-Level mind works much more math-oriented so i wish id taken further maths or physics instead.

    I do AqaB and i love it tbh, just out of interest what topics do you do for OCR?
    Well we have 2 different exams for research methods, one at AS and one at A2. The A2 one also looks at debates and perspectives.
    At AS, we do Core Studies, looking at the Social, Physiological, Cognitive, Developmental and Individual Differences. We look at 3 studies for each approach (A total of 15). And we also look at the Psychodynamic and Behavioural Persepective. That was a fairly big exam, out of 140. It was amazingly interesting though.

    Then at A2, we have Options in Applied Psychology, So we look at a variety of topics and studies under Forensic Psychology and Health Psychology, which is another big exam. There are a crazy amount of Studies to know, I think it's 57. But they're all really interesting and it's not in too much detail like the Core Studies exam.

    If you're thinking about FM then I would definitely advise learning the A* GCSE stuff - I did FSMQ Additional Maths and C1 in Year 11 and still found Year 12 quite a step up!

    its fine you dont have to be extreamly good so early since your not expected to know it, FM is not hard as-long as you put the time into it at a-levels (same with all other subjects). I only got a B in GCSE but im getting all A's so far in FM. GL enjoy yourself while you are at GCSE xD.
