Which is easiest/quickest to learn A2 Maths or AS Further maths? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Iv put this is in the Maths forum too - am i aloud to do that yeh?! - hope I dont get in trouble!

    Hiya. Basically I am teaching myself for my A levels at the mo and in Jan I am sitting AS maths (plus critical and ancient history) I was going to take A2 Maths next june but now im thinking that I think im nearly ready for my exams already- by doing past papers etc to see whats tested- I pretty much only have revision to do, nothing more to really learn, so I am considering doing an extra maths exam as well.

    Here is my question - (I am doing the exams through OCR so for AS - C1, C2 and M1 or S1 havnt decided yet)

    If I do go for another one which will be easiest/quickest to learn by january - A2 maths so get the whole A level done at once (checked with OCR this is fine) which is C3, 4 and another applied...
    AS Further Maths (FP1 plus two applied?) and then A2 Maths next june?

    Is there much difference or is it all about the same anyways?
    And do you think I will be able to do OK if I do only have 5 months to learn when Iv only studied specific AS stuff so far?


    Probably the AS further maths because fp1 is easy, and so are applied modules, i think they're probs about the same though.

    That depends. If you're doing MEI then you need to do C3 and C4 before FP1. AS f. maths would probs be best if you aren't doing MEI

    As further maths :yes:
