    For AS I took M1 and think I've done quite well in it, but would it be better to do S1 or D1 for next year seeing as they should be easier modules? Or would taking M2 be better, bearing in mind that I wont be taking A2 physics and I may have to self teach some of S1 or D1? Cheers

    Self teaching D1 is easiest. (quite straightforward).
    M2 supported is best option of the 3, assuming the support is at least good.
    D1 and S1 have few, if any, links to pure courses C3,C4. There are a few links to topics between M2 and C3/C4.

    D1 is probably the easiest to self teach, S1 not far behind. I don't really know what's in M2 but chances are, A2 physics wouldn't really help with it that much so.. :dontknow: wouldn't go for M2 anyway unless you're really keen / you're studying anything vaguely mechanics related, but even then it's not necessary.

    They are all fairly easy (if you are good at mechanics) although M2 will have somewhat higher grade boundaries because it is done by more further mathematicians. S1 and D1 are both quite dull, possibly D1 more so by a small margin. There's not much to choose between them in my opinion.

    Ive now done all three I would least recommend M2 unless you are amazing at M1 and are really good at physics.

    D1 is the easiest of the lot by far no hard maths whatsoever just a bit boring

    S1 isn't too bad but some don't like stats so its all your preference.

    If i could choose one to do id do D1 100%.
