    Hi,

    I wanted to know if i should take Statistics or Mechanics for my AS-Levels.
    Which one is more better / a bit easier / Interesting?
    I haven't done either before
    P.S : I'm not really that good in maths ! ><

    I'd say stats is easier because it's so heavily process based, but mechanics is easier because it's not completely soul destroying.

    If you want a nice easy run, I'd say go for stats, if you want something with a bit of substance the mechanics. S1, S2, M1, M2 are all nice simple modules.

    depends what you wanna do for a job, as a general rule of thumb, statistics is more useful in the real world compared to mechanics.

    probably statistics

    maybe mechanics?

    Zacken does both stats and mechanics so maybe he could give you a better comparison than i

    Take a bit of both. It doesn't really matter at A-Level.

    It's number crunching, you drop the numbers into a machine, turn the handle and the number comes out. You just decide what that number means.
