    So I'll be starting my A2 this year and I've done Edexcel AS pure math and was wondering FP2 or FP3? I want to keep my A2 as simple as possible but I literally know of no one who has done FP3. I would just like to know what you guys find easier and why
    thank youu

    I think you can take fp3 without fp2, at least according to this
    Thanks though

    You can do either Fp2 or Fp3.

    I personally found Fp3 easier. It varies but I think most find Fp2 easier.

    Thank youu, btw
    Ch.1 Hyperbolic Functions (new)
    Ch.2 Further Coordinate Systems (new)
    Ch.3 Differentiation (based on C3)
    Ch.4 Integration (based on C4)
    Ch.5 Vectors (based on C4)
    Ch.6 Further Matrix Algebra (based on Fp1)

    Roughly. There's crossover.

    I have done both but I have found FP2 to be slightly easier, I think it really depends on your strengths and weaknesses in maths.
