Someone please tell me S2 is at least slightly more interesting than S1? S1 lessons are the most tedious lessons ever for me (I'm edexcel btw)

I haven't done a systematic study, but as far as I can see, S2 in all exam boards contains more "sensible", useful stats work than S1. Some the S1 content is an utter abomination to be quite honest!

I lasted one week in S2.[OCR] Absolutely hated it! However, most people do say it's quite different to S1.

Flicking through the textbook (haven't started yet) I can confirm that it is indeed slightly more interesting than S1. It's shorter and uses more maths seen in C1/C2

It's just so long and boring It's the only time I've ever asked myself 'what is the point?' since as long as I can remember Glad to hear S2 is a bit better

Its harder, but that's kind of expected. But it is more interesting and less 'venn diagram!!!' than S1

I did it last year- it's quite a step up from S1 but is actually rather interesting.
