    I've finished my a levels, got my results and a confirmed place at Exeter, but although I covered all the core modules and FP1 and 2, I still have the FP3 section in my textbook which we didn't cover. Would it be worth trying to self teach the module over the summer?

    The fp3 stuff is part of your first year of degree. I am currently self teaching it.

    You don't have to, since the first few weeks they go over content from FP1-3 quite quickly and also beyond the A-level syllabus.

    I dont have much to do over the summer, so I'm almost finished with FP3 and started doing some STEP questions.

    Do you get your results early?

    I wouldn't. Enjoy your summer and work hard when you start.

    I always found the one who started their degree with a head start soon lost their lead through laziness and complacency.
