    Hey Guys!!

    I want to know the difficulty of the D2 module because Im thinking wether to take in my AS year or in my A2 year
    I want all the easy modules for AS and all the hard modules for A2
    Anyone who has done/is doing D2 can you compare it to other modules
    Which is it harder then which is it easier then
    As A Bonus Here's a link that helped me out that I found on the internet concerning the difficulty
    IS it accurate?

    I assume you're doing further maths?

    As far as applied modules go it's pretty easy. It's a bit more difficult than D1, and arguably more boring, but pretty easy.

    Horribly **** boring but easy.Much better doing mechanics or stats. Unless uni contains alot of optimisation.

    D2 is just a tad bit harder than D1, it is incredibly boring. With the decision modules its not really the topics which are difficult it's just that you can make mistakes quite easily and then be punished for that by losing the rest of the marks. If you can get through all of the material, I'm sure you can very easily achieve B or higher.
