    What to do? I have the choice between taking D2 or M3 as my next unit in further maths. I am not sure what to do, I am tempted by M3 but people say its hard.

    Has anyone got and recommendations?

    trust me you will be delighted if you do D2, I started the same poll (M3 or D2) on uk-learning as i was trying to make a choice between m3 and d2 as well for my further maths, atlast i chose D2 and i am so happy that i did so, if u have done D1, D2 will take you only a week to finish off, its so so sos damn easy that you can guarantee yourself A grade. and the game theory unit is quite interesting.

    then take m3 if u want to go into an enginering related degree

    otherwise take d2 its easier and chances r u won't need your m3 stuff, d2 will probably secure u an A easily

    Out of the three modules, I think P6 will be the most enjoyable. It may be difficult, but its probably the most useful in the general sense too.

    FM A2 or just AS?
    if A2 it is... compulsory that you choose P6
    if AS i would say choose M3 if you like M1 and D2 if you like D1 (and if you love both you should choose D2)

    P6 is most certainly NOT compulsory for A2 FM. (at least not with edexcel)

    FM (full A-level) can have many combinations.
    eg P3;P4;P5;M1;M2;M3.

    I had the same choice, I was choosing out of D2, DC, NA and M3 (the middle two are MEI modules); and originally I was going to do NA coz it seemed quite easy plus I didn't get on with M1/2 very much; although everyone speaks so highly of mechanics (especially compared to discrete) and it is a lot more respected; although I found mechanics interesting I found it hard. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I decided to M3, and am liking it and have now decided to M4 and 5 too; I think D2 would be a lot easier but less interesting though. Its dependent on whether you want an easy A but a dull course, or a more interesting but challenging course.

    However...if you do have the chance to do P6 do that, above M3!

    But then again, do you prefer pure or applied?!

    I had the same choice;

    if you want to get the best mark possible - D2
    if you wanna do some sort of engineering related - M3
    if you want to be a true mathematician (lol) - P6

    ended up im doin p6 and d2, and d2 is a lot easier in my opinion

    yeh definately otherwise you'd have loads of different students on different exam boards!! It does have the reputation of being the hardest exam board, but it has the best pass rates at GCSE which is why our school chose them.
