Oh okay. Did you do them early in year 12? Are you doing a gap year?
How did those modules go specifically?

You can make the M and S threads if you wish .

i think you should learn the content as early as possible, then practice practice practice, more you do the better and tough questions as well.
I'm going to be doing aea step 1/11 as well which will hopefully make fp/mech easier.
Use bostock and some other proper maths textbooks

what do you mean by m5 text btw?

Woo, further maths.
Let's hope that FP2 and 3 are a little more challenging that FP1.
