    Chemistry or Further Maths surely.


    EDIT: But then again I haven't experienced the wrath of many other A-Levels

    I'm ok at maths and I'm doing further maths as an IGCSE but I don't think I could handle it at a-level
    Maths should be pretty easy to you. You can use the extra time for further maths.

    AFM? I did them in further?:confused:
    ODEs are in Edexcel FP2 aren't they? Pick something else then: torque calculations, SHM, hyperbolics,...

    Have you ever seen a complex ion tho
    Yeah. I did A-level chemistry.

    Ah well I did AQA so probably why.

    Yeah biology was my second hardest.



    Why not AFM? I'm sure people who find maths difficult will struggle more to solve 2nd order ODEs and diagonalise matrices than add some complex numbers.

    What about additional further maths?
    M4 and m5 are tough but s3 and s4 are relatively easy. AFM is made up of units people did not take in their maths or further maths so it can be tougher depending on the units taken.

    i'm not going to say A-Level Further Maths because the only difficult modules in maths are M4, M5, AEA/STEP. The rest are a joke.

    That's precisely our point.

    In my opinion, further maths followed by chemistry (I find them more difficult than physics and biology anyway).
    But it depends on whether you like the subject. There's a lot to learn in biology, but I find it pretty interesting, so it's easier than chemistry for me.

    Yes, but people are usually going to study their hardest modules last and conceptually you tend to group them by A-level, even before caching so you consider your AFM modules to be your last/hardest ones, particularly if your board doesn't offer AFM. Also, I found M4 and 5 relatively easy but still haven't got around to studying S3 and S4 because I find statistics so much harder than mechanics.

    Chemistry, and then A2 Additional FM because you finally have to suck it up and do the modules you've been avoiding for so long.

    History, mainly because one of my teachers is incompetent. For her module she has taught us stuff that isn't on the spec at the expense of stuff that is, has done no past paper work and gives us notes (no joke) that were made in the 80s and have past paper questions from the 1970s - 80s. It's no surprise I spend a lot of time having to buy books, read them and type my own notes.
    Has the history changed much since the 70s?

    Im thinking between biology and physics for a-level, I tend to get higher marks in biology but i get really high marks in maths, so if i take a level physics will it be more like maths? or should i just take biology
