    I was just wondering what modules you're doing and how you're finding them?

    Im doing AQA. I've done FP1 (78/100) which I'll probably resit at some point. I'm doing FP4 in the summer and M1 next january

    Not too sure whether to do A2 yet... advice? ill probably end up doing FP2 with two of D2, M2 or FP3

    I'm doing OCR. I'm not completely sure which of the applied will account for maths and which for further maths.

    I've done C1 (97/100) and S1(99/100), and I'm doing C2, FP1, D1 and M1 in June. Next year I'll (hopefully) do C3, C4, FP2, FP3, M2 and M3.

    I don't think there's any problems with C2, FP1 and M1. D1, however, is proving a pain in the arse and I'll be lucky to get over 80%.

    I used to have a private tutor for just A level maths - and when I asked him about D1 - He said more or less the same thing

    AQA for me.

    AS: FP1 (hard), D1 (free marks), S1 (boring as hell)
    A2: FP2 (harder), D2 (more free marks), M2 (not too bad so far)

    It's apparently the easiest module. :p:

    The actual processes are quite easy to understand, and there's not too much to learn. But I can be rather careless so tedious, longwinded algorithms don't really sit well. Especially the Simplex algorithm and Dijkstra's algorithm.

    f math is awesome. d1 was the bane of my life when i had to do it. its a piss easy A/B, but to get high marks you need good teachers, fact. I'm fine with 93. I mean I need over 95% average in maths, so the 93 on D1 will do.

    FP1 is piss easy too. my teacher just throws FP2 books at me to keep me quiet in lessons lol.

    I find C1 and C2 incredibly easy, S1 is incredibly dull but i REALLY liked FP1 as i was finally challenged in maths for the first time in my life!! If you get A/A* GCSE you'll find regular maths A level a doddle, although I know people with C at intermediate GCSE maths who are ontrack for a high B at A level
