and they want me to learn all this in 2 months, didnt do maths after gcse so now its bare peak. in this country everyone does every subject up till year 13 and i just feel like an idiot, ths is the stuff we have to cover to understand medicine better or something idunno

get your ass off tsr and start revsising bruh. Not much else to do if they want you to learn it unless you want to drop out?

lol, what did you think of the content would that all be a level maths or further maths or what

Currently studying at a British med school, and whilst we don’t have derivates etc we do have statistics (and a LOT of them at that).

Maths can only be practiced by doing the exercises. Good luck

just going off thet titles it seems mostly to be a level maths content (not many people doing med choose further maths so i'd be suprised if you were supposed to learn a lot of fm content). Should be doable

Honestly, this thread is way better off in the maths forum than here. UK medical schools don't teach any of this.

Most of this is covered in Paul's Online Math Notes, which might be a helpful resource. This looks generally to be a typical calculus sequence (through differential equations, plus a couple of odd topics like complex derivatives). They probably expect you to have already covered the equivalent of A-level Mathematics (and some Further Mathematics; you'll need at least complex numbers for the complex derivatives, and they might consequently also assume stuff like infinite series and matrices in other areas) before starting this content...

It would probably be sensible to determine what is typically on assessments (what things will definitely be examined, vs things that only sometimes or almost never come in) and focus on those areas. For example, unless complex derivatives are a pretty large amount of the assessed content, you can probably skip that (and hence, learning complex numbers). This might help reduce the amount of content you need to cover (equally if you find some given topic is completely incomprehensible to you it might be better to focus your efforts on other areas to maximize your marks there).

It would be a portion of A-level maths with some bits extending into further maths. You're also missing out a lot of A-level maths content though.

I would look at the assessment standard and learn to the exam. Obviously, none of this has anything to do with actual medicine and so cramming for the exam then forgetting is absolutely fine. With that in mind, 2 months is definitely enough. Hard but enough. Get working!
