Ive been self teaching AS maths for the past 3 months or so ,and I'm finding it fairly easy but Ive been having far too many distractions/problems which have resulted in me still being on chapter 4 of C1 and chapter 2 of C2 and not starting S1.

So is there any point me continuing despite only 4 months left till the first exam.
Thanks

Have you entered yourself for the exam and paid for it? Would this be the 4th AS subject that you would drop at A2 anyway?

well if you focus and with easter coming up and everything, you could easily have C1 and C2 done by the end of march. then two weeks for S1 (because its literally half of the gcse repeated) and youre done mid april at the latest

I think you should continue teaching it to yourself. Currently at school I have completed c1 but still have half of c2 to complete. We won't be starting s1 till after Easter. Don't give up. One solid week of revising will mean you will get c1 completed.

I self taught most of my Maths modules using books and ExamSolutions Youtube channel. Managed to get A* so hardly makes a difference in my opinion

its really quite manageable, if you're getting a good A at gcse youll most likely get an A in AS

depends how good you are i suppose :laugh: zero homework if youre really good and probably 1 hour or so per night if you scraped into the alevel class

sorry but i cant really give you an answer ,maths isnt like history/english/geography where no matter how good you are you still have to write essays for homework etc. People probably get 98+UMS in maths without doing any homeworks for the whole 2 years, it really just depends on how good you are

never really looked into medicine but i would assume maths is a stronger subject to have than english lit or spanish, but then again if you get 4 A*s at alevel who really cares what youre studying :laugh: if you like maths and think you can get an A/A* then I would consider doing it, however if you like engliish lit and spanish more then thats probably fine too
