It could be. As for content, once you understand the basics, it can be fairly easy to apply them in the harder situations. C1 and C2, are pretty good units that you can get your head around, especially if you're self teaching the topics.

And as for S1/D1, most people I know prefer D1, as it's quite straightforward once you learn all the theorems and stuff.(I've only been through half of each, but they've both been okay so far.)

I've learned all of C1 and C2, as well as parts of M1, S1, and FP1, since September in Further Maths, so that's been about what? About 4 months. (-holidays). But I know people in normal Maths classes have only done roughly C1 and M1/S1. So it's gonna take a lot of work, and depends on how much you go through each week.

How good/ confident are you at Maths?

C2 is the only one that can trip you, so be extra cautious with that one and then it should be a breeeeeeze

I don't think it requires 2 months to go through past papers, because although there are loads of questions, in a month you'll surely run out. I'm not sure how much content there is in S1, but it should be doable.

But perhaps you might want to think about spending some extra time making sure you understand the topics. or you can do so after some past paper questions, just so you'll have more of an idea of the kind of difficulty of questions.

For example, in C2. we were given a past paper to do for the holidays, and I'd completely forgotten how to answer the series questions, because they were different and harder than the sort we'd do in class. (Also trapezium rule stumped me, because as it turns out, we weren't even taught it, though it is pretty simple to me now.)

Also, out of interest, what exam board are you doing? I'm taking AQA.

Well, as I've stated before, I'm taking Maths and Further Maths, so thus far we have completed C1, C2, and done some parts of S1, M1, D1, and FP1

thanks. so you have about 2 more modules to go plus other A levels?
I think C1 and C2 and S1 is possible in 5 months.
should a unit a month be ok?

S1 is harder than d1. D1 is really straight forward but the boundaries are a lot high because it's easier. Think about which one will be quicker to master and won't give you unnecessary hassle.
