    Once you've done M1, M2 is quite simple, and, I think, more interesting than S1.

    yeh this is very true - M2 is just an extension of M1 and there arent really any new or hard concepts which have to be learnt. If you were good at M1, you will find M2 a walk in the park. If you didnt like M1 or you wernt that good at it then take S1 - S1 is also very simple. What do you plan to study at uni btw?

    I would confidently say S1 is easier then m2 but a lot more boring.
    If your doing a business related course then you would be more suited to s1 anyway. You basically deal with graphs charts and probability. Finding mean median etc Its your basic stuff that you probably already know with a slight few extras. In my opinion all you do for s1 is just plug data into formulas no real maths work involved.

    M2 is undoubtedly a good deal more interesting than S1, and should seriously be considered if you enjoyed M1/found it easy ...

    M2 is not an easy module in my opinion. Despite getting 100 UMS on M1, I only managed 77 UMS on M2, though we did it before we had done preparatory work from later core modules. It depends on your situation, how good are your marks on other modules? Are you considering applying to Cambridge? Depending on these you should go for S1 or M2

    If you found M1 okay then definitely do M2. S1 is really boring.

    well lets put it this way , if u need a really good mark to get a certain grade i.e A then it should be S1 becasue s1 is easier than M1 never mind m2.


    i take the point of it being boring, but if u end up 2-3 ums off ur rquired grade becase you chose the hareder m2 option you then i think you might regret not doin s1.

    never mind interesting , do the one ur gonna get a better mark in , u'll get all the 'interest ' u need when u get a top grade !!!!!

    I disagree. M2 is easier to get full marks on providing you know the course really well. The questions always require logical workthroughs to reach an answer. S1 in terms of techniques is easier, but there are diagrams and contextual questions that mean it is easily possible to drop a few marks.

    I'd do M2 because it's slightly more interesting, but it doesn't really matter.
