    Hello,

    I have just recently started self-studying Maths. I'm just wondering: will I still be able to take the modular exams under the old spec or do I have to follow the new spec? I want to sit all the Maths (C1, C2, C3, C4, S1, M1) and Further Maths (FP1, FP2, FP3, S2, S3, M2) modules next summer in 2018.

    Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    The last chance to do it under the old specification is summer 2018. it will be possible if you can find a centre accepting private candidates for those exams.

    The final chance to sit them is Summer 2018. If you want to re-sit a module then you can in 2019. That's it after that I think, no more old specification.

    Im not trying to put u down or anything i just want u to make sure that u understand the magnitude of what you have to do. 12 modules to learn in about a year is quite a task as well as sitting twelve maths exams. It will be particularly difficult if you are doing any other subjects, if not then u should be fine.

    I would recommend the Edexcel official textbooks they are fantastic. Also make sure u will get loads of past papers done in preparation for exams. If need be u can also do solomon papers on physics and maths tutor website.

    Physics and maths tutor is very useful as it has the solution banks for all modules, so it shows u how to work out the answer in the book.

    Also exam soltuions has good videos on the website going through papst papers etc.

    Good luck! Any questions im sure the good folk of tsr can help u out!

    I will only be sitting those 12 maths modules next year, and I am already using the Edexcel text books in conjuction with Examsolutions to test my understanding of topics.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.
