Both at the same time, I'd suggest. It stops you getting into the "ahh this is C2 it must be horrible" mindset, and keeps topics together. Some other classes at my school did C1 differentiation four months before C2. That doesn't make sense! So, I'd suggest doing a topic at a time, using both C1 and C2 stuff. Obviously, if there are individual topics only in one unit, do the C1 ones first.

It's much better to study Core 1, then Core 2 since Core 2 requires you to understand C1.

C2 stuff only depends on the very basic C1 stuff (surds, indices, quadratics, straight line graphs) and the relevant C1 topic. I wasn't suggesting you do C2 differentiation before C1 Differentiation, just that as they follow on so logically, you logically follow through, until you've done all of differentiation.

I'd recommend core 1 first then core 2. Core 1 is just gcse stuff but a bit harder so it's really quick to get through (I just finished core 1 last week).

They can be done alongside each other and I kinda suggest doing it that way. They require a different way of thinking in my opinion and being able to do both from the start is good

I learnt them side by side at school. C2 builds on some of the knowledge of C1; I suppose technically you should do the C1 modules required for C2 before starting it but hey. To be honest C1 is so basic you could probably do it first and plough through it before moving on to C2 but its up to you.

I think I'll do c1 first and see how that goes! I'm doin physics and mechanical engineerin aswell so I need to spread out all my subjects rather than just focusing on maths.

Hello. As what everyone else says, it's pretty much the same for me! Core 1 first, then Core 2!
