    So you use the AQA one? Is it useful?
    I only just got an account this week so I can't really give you an honest, comprehensive review. I am extremely sorry. Maybe @thekidwhogames can give a full review?

    Update:
    - I think I will change my modules for FM. I've done the mechanics but I think I'll change it to FP1-FP3, S2-S3-D1. I'll either take FP1-FP3, S2-S3-D1 or FP1-FP3, S2-M2-M3 but my statistics is far better than my physics and D1 is quite simple so I may do that (to ensure high UMS for Oxbridge later on) and focus on other stuff like STEP
    - Next week, got Physics GCSE Olympiad and then IMOK week after
    - Got some tests next week (Comp, Eng, Psychology and a big science mock soon)

    Nah, I'd really like to do it even though we haven't done any actual Physics in school for a lot of time xD

    Honestly, I don't fit anything in xD

    I do 15 hours of Maths A level study every Saturday and on the week-days, I do 3 hours of Olympiad Maths, 2 hours of science revision and an hour of homework. On Sundays, I do 2 hours English, 1 hour for each French/Computing and 3 hours of science revision.

    That is a lot!!! Do you have any other hobbies, i.e. music/sport? And isn't Physics olympiad for A levels?

    Ah no I'm terrible at sport and even worse at music. Yeah that's right but they have a GCSE one too.

    Jesus 15 hours of maths in a day must be a killer, i struggle to do more than 2 hours of additional maths.
    I just wanted to say thanks so much for telling us the methods you use to revise, due to it i bought mygcsescience and some past papers and now my grade in science went from a high 6/low 7 to a solid 8. Best of luck in the future man.

    No problem - glad to be of help! You do FMSQ Additional Maths? It's very respected and will make transition to A level smooth! Good luck to you too!

    You don't get to choose which applied modules go in Maths and which in F Maths - the exam board do that for you.

    Yeah, I'm aware they shuffle them about to get the best grade or something but I meant those are the modules I studied when I started to study FM and Maths. Sorry for the confusion.

    Yeah, my teacher entered me. My favorite science is Physics closely followed by Chemistry. You?

    Chemistry then physics, which is why I'm having a hard time chooing for a levels. I understand chemistry at the moment better, but because physcis a level is 40% maths I feel like it would be a better chose. So my school says if timetabling allows, I can do both then drop one in the 1st month. Both are gradae 9 standard though. I know my school does the science olympiads at a level, it probably isn't worth doing anyways, I haven't finished the specification yet for anything other than maths.
