    erm, i think AS F. Maths consists of P4, P5 and one applied module (not sure though)....what did you have to take to do AS maths?
    all the teachers at our school say that p4 is easier than p3, if that's any help to you

    well, so far it's easier than p3....apparently, some schools 'cheat' by entering students in for p4 instead of p3 as part of their normal maths a-level

    i'm guessing that an as in f. maths for you would probably be p4, p5 and m2/s3....not sure though

    do you want to do maths at uni? if so, then it may be wise to choose it- but it's not necessary
    if you're not gonna do maths at all, and are just looking for good grades to get into the uni of your choice, then there's no need to do f. maths

    well, since your doing maths at uni, it might be helpful to do f. maths, since you just have to do p4 (apparently easier than p3), and then two more applied modules, which could be m2 and s3. from my own experience, m2 is definetely doable....don't know a lot about s3 though, except it's got coursework.

    i don't really know about easier subjects- sorry

    You could make life easier for yourself (later on!) and do P4, P5 and P6 as part of your further maths AS.

    Depends on your school. At my school, we cant choose which modules we take.

    So you could do P4, M2 and P5 if you wanted, but not P4,5 and 6.
