    Just wondering if anyone's doing M6 next week... It seems wierd - there's not much new stuff, it's just everything in different coordinate systems... I'd be interested to know what everyone thinks...

    i'm doing M6 this week, although i havnt finished it yet!!!

    well from what i've seen till now, i felt that M6 is somehow like a Synoptic for all the mechanics. isnt it? maybe more complicated, and it joins almost everything together, but i dont really know!!!


    i think this is its last year
    yes this is true, this is the last year for M6.

    i don't get it... even if you do further maths everyone does the easiest combination possible so they can get the best marks... who would chose to do m4, m5, m6, s4, s5, s6 and why do they have these exams if so few people do them?

    You're right, but I'm doing two maths A-levels and one AS in mechanics. This means that I need 15 modules in total, including M1 M2 M3. Also, I prefer not to do S3 because it involves CW. Therefore, the only choice is
    P1 - P6 (6)
    D1 - D2 (2)
    S1 (1)
    M1 - M6 (6)

    It's true that S2 could be done instead (or as well as!) M6, but that's a matter of personal choice

    That's true - in fact, they've just removed them. This is the last year they're being offered

    That's a generalization. Some people enjoy the challenge; other people just hate stats.

    I thought S1 was just plugging numbers in formulae... i did to well at it though so i'm not complaining

    Would you say it is worth me doing M6 even though I can't do the exam..how much worthwhile mechanics is there in M6?..I'm going to do up to M5, so is it an easy progression?
