Rank these modules by difficulty; 10 being most difficult.

C1
C2
C3
C4
M1
M2
S1
S2
FP1

I finished AS level standard maths with M1, I am now going into A2 with it but I am picking up AS FM with FP1, S1 and S2. I am finding FP1 fairly tricky but I think I can handle it.

1) M1 was definitely the hardest last year compared to C1&2. How much of a step up is M2?

2) How do the stats modules compare to the mechanics modules?

3) How hard is FP1 compared to mechanics?

I got 293/300 last year.

Thanks!

C1: 3 - a ****** could do it
C2: 2 - like C1, but I get a calculator
C3: 7 - big jump in algebra from AS
C4: 8 - loads of integration
M1: 5 - draw diagrams
M2: 7 - harder M1
S1: 4 - not all that hard, just like gcse really
S2: 6 - depends on how good you are at hypothesis testing
FP1: 4 - Would get the same as C1 as it is a very small unit but because everything is brand new,mid say it's a little harder.

As you can probably guess, I'm a fan of pure maths.

I can't really give a rating, but can make some comments based on my experience of them:
C1/C2 are really easy, both in terms of learning and exam wise.
C3 is easier to learn than C4 for most of the topics, but C3 exams are harder. ( I self taught the core stuff)
FP1 seems quite easy as well, and exams aren't too bad either
M1 is quite easy to learn if you have the right teacher/can visualise everything. M2 is slightly harder to learn, but i would say M2 exams are easier than M1.
S1 was so ridiculously easy, i could have died of boredom doing it. I didn't even revise for it properly(!) I haven't done S2 though, i did D1 instead, which is quite easy to learn (and i kind of enjoyed it!) but this year's exam was something else!

Hope that helps!

Thanks to both of you. Just wanted to see how the stats units are in comparison as I haven't started yet, looks like its going to be soooo fun...
