In my school, FP2 and FP3 are optional in terms of learning and doing the exam, so I was just wondering if it was the same case elsewhere

swear the F1 papers are harder than the IAL FP1 papers??? had a 4+ mark difference between the 2 papers for jan 14
Not at all - they're the same - you need to know about roots of polynomial equations which I think isn't included in the FP1 spec.

For Edexcel A2 Further Maths, you have to do either FP2 or FP3. (Or both if you choose!)
6. So am I right in saying FP3 does not require FP2 knowledge?

Difficulty ratings, the more *'s the harder, a + is worth about half a star.

Yeah, if you find yourself getting confused by the sigma notation, write out the series explicitly.
Hello again!
Could you explain me how we moved from the first line to the second?

2^2k-1+2 = 2^2(2^2k-1) = 4^2k-1

Riight thanks, i went on and added the +2-1 on the power and got lost.
15. As I posted in last year's Edexcel FP1 thread, I have written an Enhanced Examination Paper for both Edexcel and MEI FP1.

It is meant to be a significantly more challenging examination of general concepts specified by different boards. It is fully doable for students with knowledge of standard FP1, C1, and C2 material.

If you can make a good start on all of the questions then you should be on track to a strong A in this module.

Good luck!
