Can somebody explain what the FSMQ is and what it covers? Is it hard and can you get an A or A* by being diligent and patient with your studying of it?

Well, firstly, no, you can't get A*- it only goes up to A. And yes, it is hard, but you get the hang of it, and from experience it's nearly essential if you want to do A Level Further maths or IB Higher maths.

Hi,

I did the FSMQ (OCR Additional Mathematics) and covered:

- Coordinate geometry
- Basic differentiation and integration
- Some kinematics (SUVAT equations, applications of calculus for non-constant acceleration)
- Binomial expansion (and binomial distribution in statistics)
- Linear programming
- Further trig (identities, solving trig equations)
- 3d trig (can't remember if this was also in GCSE though)

It's not absolutely essential for Further Maths

Ad maths is a piece of cake. Got an A.

Left the exam 15 mins early and left 2 questions out, I didn't even study for it.

Having said that the cie ad maths, and edexcel igcse further maths are much more rigorous.
