Actually calculus is a broad subject with many areas are being covered. What we learned in form 5 is just the very very simple and basic knowledge of calculus.
How much do you know about limit? Just limit can be a very long chapter that can take up to 1-2 months' time.
Somemore, we hav learnt differentiation in form 4. But, that one is very very basic one. Hav u learnt about differention of trigonometric function, like sin, cos, tan, cot, sin-1
... and e, ln
?? Somemore got integration about all this. Somemore differential equations and system of differential equations.
Don't think that calculus is just form 5 like that. Many more for u to explore.
