    M4/M5 not taking the exams as I don't like the date of M4 and there's not much point sitting M5 if I'm not sitting M4.

    M3 I'm taking as an extra because I think I have a shot at full.

    That way I get a free "get out of jail free" card if I muck up another module - easy substitution in to get rid of the bad one
    Ah, okay so it's like me and S3. People think I'm absolute bonkers for doing 7 but S3 isn't really much more difficult than S2 so I don't mind it.

    Tbh, I think you'll do fine in M3. The gate out of jail card is reserved for FP3 in my case.

    I'm also going to have to agree with you

    Oooh nice

    I'm doing 4 (M/FM/Ph/Ger)

    But I'm retaking a German paper and I did a Physics paper already, and also taking M3 as an extra

    Wbu?
    Math,FM,Chem,Phy, G.S. and AFM AS. And STEP 1.

    I dont have the motivation nor the time to do a language to an A2. And I got a meagre A in gcse german :/

    I was going to do the full 6, but the exam dates are pathetic, and I have enough clashes as it is without, C4 S4, C3 M5 clahsing etc.

    tbh fm isn't that bad. Only FP2 FP3 M2 M3 are the challegning modules imo

    Don't worry I got an A too

    Yeah I agree they really don't do a good job at spreading them out.

    I think yeah FP2/3 are challenging, M3 is challenging and some parts of M2

    Yeah agreed!

    How was SAT?
    It was non-existent. Missed the train :/

    Will do the three subjject tests in May now.

    Was so confident in getting 800 in maths, but I wasn't ready for english.

    Will have to do the new SAT, where the maths looks harder and eng is easier, shuld be better for me I imagine.

    what I found was that chungs was too hard

    barrons was ideal

    princeton was easy

    kaplan was a joke

    And I have missed someone off haha

    SAT is such a businesses entity, they must have billions of dollars in their cofferes.

    Hello there,
    I posted previously on this forum in regards to M3, saying I'm finding chapter 2 difficult. I was just wondering, are the exam questions anything like the questions in the book? Are the exam questions easier?
    Most of the questions in the miscellaneous exercises are past exam questions and there are plenty of them.
