    Edexcel Maths A-level dependency table
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/atta...hmentid=237097
    Notes:
    - The arrows show dependency one way. The arrow pointing from C1 to C2 shows that C2 is dependent on C1.
    - If A is dependent on B, and B is dependent on C, then A is dependent on C. For example, C3 requires C2 and C2 requires C1 so C3 requires C1.
    - If a module has no arrows before it (C1, S1, D1) then it is not dependent on any previous A level knowledge.

    I'm copying L'Evil Fish's OP from the original days of this thread.
    If there are helpers who want to be identified, then I'll tag you in this OP.

    I'm aware there are module specific thread but I found the original versions of this thread to be particularly useful back in the day so thought I'd recreate

    So what do you mean you're doing? Do you mean to say you're learning the material in some sense - perhaps for STEP? How much content have you covered so far and do you have any weak points?

    I'm just learning M4/M5 for fun, yeah. Not even STEP - just to help me I guess at uni

    I've covered a little bit of M4 but I've been on a hiatus from the self teaching. I think I'd need to go through to pinpoint my weaknesses because I'm doing a fair few modules this year :laugh: It's great that you've covered yours in your blog though!

    No worries we'd be happy to help :yep:

    I'd say my favourite this year has been teaching M3 because it was the first hard module I self taught and I felt a great sense of achievement completing my first past papers and realising that I can actually learn tough things on my own.

    How about you?

    Sure but maybe not further maths. A few friends who got Bs are working at A standards at A2

    You'll need a lot of work at A-level, but sure, Ziggy Stardust! It's possible with a lot of practice.

    I want to do an English degree, kek

    I wanted to take maths though, to vary my choices(I'm planning to take English lit, psychology, french & maths) and keep my options open.
    and I've heard how "respected" the maths A level is, so I figured I could take it.
