    Hi everyone,

    Basically, I'm currently 14 and self-teaching Mathematics. When I was year 8, I self taught myself the new Maths GCSEs, in order to compete with my brother. He's now in year 12 (I'm 12 years younger) and so he's starting his AS now. During the summer holidays, I spent 3 hours a day for the last 2 weeks and managed to self-teach Core 1/Core 2 AS Maths (only learnt the content and did a few exam questions). The next week, I self taught myself FP1; again, only learning the raw content and doing a few exam questions. I've been teaching myself from videos (examsolutions), but I've noticed his explanations for certain topics aren't clear. I was wondering; what is the easiest way to self-teach? Sets of videos, books - if so, which ones? I was hoping on learning C1, C2, C3, C4, FP1, FP2, FP3, M1, M2, S1, S2 by time I'm 15. Obviously, this may not be possible. I'm trying to put in a lot of effort and I'm quite determined.

    1) Is this possible?
    2) How can I self-teach above C2 - easiest way?

    Why are you self-teaching so many Maths units?

    For A-levels Maths you only need to know C1, C2, C3, C4 and two additional units (which can be a mix of M1, M2, S1, S2, D1, D2).

    Wow you are an inspiration, I think u also should do further maths at a level as you are trying to learn almost all the units on the maths side XD. I've got some textbooks that are actually pretty good and I am currently at AS. I would say maths a level might be easy and hard if u keep up with the work you are doing at school. Im going to give you the name of the books later. IM GOING SCHOOL NOW!!! srry
