    First year, I did D1 and I did pretty well. Now this year, we have a choice of S1 or D2, I just want to know which one is easier... I been told that D1 and D2 doesn't overlap each other which made me hesitate on picking it.

    So please give me advice on which one to pick, thank you

    I'd pick S1. I hear D2 is quite a bit harder than D1, whereas with S1 you're starting a new discipline from scratch (sort of). Not as many people do D2, so there's a selection effect, where a greater portion of those who do take D2 are the stronger candidates anyway.

    Is S1 more like GCSE?

    More so than D2 in my opinion. At least you've done some basic stats at GCSE.

    Pick S1 its an AS unit, so it will be much easier.
