    Simply because you get a higher mark in a particular unit doesnt make it 'easier' per-se. I personally found FP1 easier than C4, not so sure about a comparison with C3 (I did FP1 a year later than C3 when my maths skills were better). I recall that in the front of our MEI FP1 textbook it mentioned that C1 and C2 were the only requirements to study FP1.

    Ok I want to do this Further Maths too, but I already am taking Physics , Chem, Bio and Maths in A Levels. So its a bit hard. I will try to complete FurtherMaths in summer vications after appearing in my AS this year

    I've been studying maths independently of everybody else since my GCSE in year 9 (currently on C4 of A-level in year 11). I think that it's much quicker to do it independently using a decent textbook if you are motivated enough, however, I think that you sometimes miss vital things, both that are not completely relevant to passing the exam (like the background and applications of what you are studying) and also some relevant stuff too (for example, I didn't understand the C1 chapter on differentiation because the textbook rambled on about differentiation from first principles, and I had to get a teacher to tell me how to differentiate a simple expression such as x^2 ).
