    I don't know whether to pick mechanics or decision for maths.
    Some people say that decision is boring but easy,
    while others say mechanics is interesting and more useful. but to be honest i don't really understand mechanics at the moment and I'm finding it difficult right now . Also i didn't really get the vectors in GCSE maths and i heard it comes up in mechanics.
    Also is decision kinda like stats is for being a tedious subject?
    Because normally we only does statistics for A2 rather than A1.
    Also the teachers say that once you understand mechanics you find it easier, but is that true?
    which would be the better off option for someone who is not quite so good at maths?
    Also will it affect your Uni application, compared to someone who did mechanics rather than decision?
    Also you see the exams papers are the questions really long and hard to understand?

    Please help

    I would advice that you do mechanics over decision any day. Not only is decision less respected, but with mechanics in the exam you can get away with not writing every step but for decision you have to.

    I've done both. In my opinion, if you do Physics, do Mechanics. If not (and especially if you don't like vectors) do Decision. Yeah it's boring, but it's easy.

    I did both on AQA. I enjoyed M1 a lot more.

    Mechanics is more interesting, more useful and more respected. Its also harder. Your choice

    I've started doing mechanics. Your teacher's right. It seems hard at first, but once you get it, it's easy.
