Hello,

I understand people will have different opinions due to various of factors.

To the point - What I want to find out is what exam did YOU find hardest/easiest in maths, and if you could - please briefly explain why. Rule: Only fill in the gaps for which exams you have sat.
Explanations given will be appreciated
Keys: E = Easy, T = Tough (why?) M = Mild (why?) O = other - give your view if you selected this.

Simply Copy and Paste the units, and comment your answer with the following keys. If you haven't sat some of the following exams simply write "N/A"

Core 1 =
Core 2 =
Core 3 =
Core 4 =

Further Pure 1 =
Further Pure 2 =
Further Pure 3 =

Mech 1 =
Mech 2 =
Mech 3 =
Mech 4 =
Mech 5 =

Stat 1 =
Stat 2 =
Stat 3 =
Stat 4 =

D1 =
D2 =

Overall: what Exam was the Hardest: (remove this and fill with your opinion)

That's not the point of this. I just want to know people's opinion.

Core 1 = E
Core 2 = E
Core 3 = E
Core 4 = M. Vectors is slightly irritating

Further Pure 1 = M. Proof can be dodgy
Further Pure 2 = T. Particular Integrals in 2nd order can be difficult and generally some of the algebra can prove challenging.
Further Pure 3 = N/A

Mech 1 = E
Mech 2 = M. Statics was difficult.
Mech 3 = N/A
Mech 4 = N/A
Mech 5 = N/A

Stat 1 = E
Stat 2 = E
Stat 3 = N/A
Stat 4 = N/A

D1 = M. Hard to avoid errors because the methods are so long and tedious.
D2 = T. Dynamic programming can be a nightmare, likewise with Simplex.

Core 3 = T. Trigonometry
Core 4 = T. Differentiation, Integration

Stat 1 = M. Normal distribution

D1 = E
