    Hey. So I'm doing FMSQ and I need serious help. I'm at the point where I have an internal breakdown every time I hear the words.
    I've been going through past papers and trying to answer questions and I literally can't do most of them. Does anyone know any books/website or any resource that I could use that explains the topics because I definately need it.
    Thanks

    Hi I'm attempting to do further maths s too but i don't understand anything.when the teacher goes through it I get it but when I try and go back to revise it or do a past paper on it, it makes literally no sense. We've been given a textbook that kinda helps called Additional mathematics. But other than that I'm lost too 😖

    Just a note, schools enter pupils who are good at maths (or when I did it, already got an A grade or above in Year 10, so we did the FSMQ in Year 11) so props to you already fkr even getting the chance to do it.
    The FSMQ is nothing to worry about - if yiu get a goood grade, yay, if not then nobody asks about it anyway as it's not a GCSE or A Level.
    Take for example me, I did the FSMQ 2 years ago and got a U , I am now doing A Level Maths on track to get an A* with 100% in C1 and 96% in C2.
    So it's honestly not the be all end all.
    Anywho, I believe in you :lovehug:

    Theres a question on integration I've been stuck on...

    a. Find the area enclosed between the curve y=8x^3, the x-axis and the line x=2

    b. Hence, or otherwise, deduce the area between the x-axis, the y-axis, the line x=2 and the curve y=8x^3 + 5

    I sorta get part a but I'm I have no clue about b 😦

    Wow thats really good 😀. I'm doing A Level Maths next year so hopefully I'll find it slightly easier as I've done additional.
    I'm trying not to give it too much thought as I still have all my other subjects to worry about
    Thank you though

    Is this the same as the "aqa certificate in further mathematics" which has an A^ grade which is higher than the A*. If so I am doing that.

    Hey I do the AQA spec, since you're really confident with it, how did you learn/revise it excluding teaching from the school? Did u look at tutorials etc etc

    Just don't bother with it. Some people just aren't smart enough, I know about 15 people with A*s in GCSE Maths in Year 10 that got U's in FSMQ Additional Maths. It's not worth your time, your actual GCSE's are. I was able to get to an A with a couple weeks of revision so it really is one of those things some people just can't cope with. It's not that important tbh.
