    I am thinking of self teaching FP1, D1, C3, C4 & FP2 over the summer, firstly because i have an ambition for Mathematics, which links intimately to Computer Science, (the extra knowledge couldn't hurt) & to step-up my chances of getting into a better university (i.e. ICL). I didn't meet the required criteria to do Further Maths at my school, so I'm deciding to self teach, or at least get a private tutor to teach me the modules. Because i wouldn't have done FP1 @ AS & my grades for AS would be used for my application would i still have a chance of getting into a University like ICL if i completed FP1 & FP2 @ A2?

    And I thought self teaching core 3 and core 4 over summer would be long....

    They're all straight-forward enough to self-teach, only downside is that you'll lose your summer & ask imperial directly about that.

    so are you going to take the tests as well? Otherwise Im not sure how a uni would take it into account.

    No, go have fun with your friends instead.
