    Hi guys,
    I have decided to start self teaching M3 in preparation for applying to study physics next year. Has anyone got any tips about how would be best to go about this?
    Thanks in advance.

    I self-taught M3 as well. I did edexcel.
    It was pretty easy to be fair (other than the last chapter which took a bit of time)
    My advice would be to start early as it will only take a week at most to finish if you do a couple of hours a day, then it's mostly about past papers, as there are many tricky questions which they don't show you how to do in the book, and the grade boundaries are really high at time like last year, it was 72 for an A*
    I messed up this year as I didn't read the question properly, so I lost like 4 marks on that question (the paper this year was really easy, but tricky if you didn't read the question properly )
