How long does it takes to study M1?Watch
The problem is that I finished C1 and only did 2 topics of C2 and I still have M1 to do which I haven't started.
Would I be able to do the test for C12 and M1 in time for May/June 2015?
I'm very very worried!!! please help!
(I also do physics in school)
I would strongly disagree with this. M1 has a fair bit of content to cover, and more importantly it's got a different way of thinking that you'll have to adapt to. It took us roughly 50-60 hours to cover it, but that wouldn't be equivalent to working flat out for a week or so, you've got to let the concepts sink in a bit. I wouldn't do it in any less than a month, you need to fully understand it to do well, I personally found it very tough at first but did very well at the end. May/June is far away, so you've definitely got enough time.
Class time is much less productive for a large majority of people than personal time so I would say it is reasonable to say that 50 hours of class time would be round about 3 days of solid work on the unit.
This comes from personal experience as I self taught S2, M1, M2 and M3 each at around 2-4 days (and got over 90 UMS in all).
