I want to self teach FM this summer, i've told my teacher about this, she says it's a bit late because my exam board is WJEC, and even their FM AS requires knowledge of C1-4 first.

The thing is, i want to do Edexcel FM AS, does C1-4 still apply?

Have a look at the content of the modules and you will see which parts are relevant to C1-4, but if you have covered most of C1-4 then it shouldn't be a problem.

I did FM on AQA. Also, I forgot to mention (and probably mispoke while at it) that AS FM would only really require you to have C1-2 because if people are taking FM+M at the same time then clearly it doesn't make sense for them to cover C1-4 in the first year just to do FM - then again, I don't know how WJEC works.

For AQA and Edexcel, you only need C1-2 knowledge for AS FP modules and maybe some M1/S1 if you're doing further M/S modules.

Edexcel FP1 doesn't require c3 or c4, but some topics may help like differentiation of parametric functions. But you only need c1 and c2 knowledge for FP1.

If you do WJEC FM, you could go over c3 and c4 in the summer.

oh ok, that make more sense on the other boards, my teacher said there's two who does FM with wjec in my school privately and they're rushing it through C1-4, i dont understand it either tbh.
thanks
