    I'm not sure whether or not to take S2 or M1 next year. I just want to pick the easier module. I've done the AQA M1 module before and achieved a B in this module as I am a resit student so that spurs me to do M1 next year;however it may be more difficult than S2 and wouldn't like to jeopardise my grade. Also, I've noticed S2 has really high grade boundaries for an A*. For example, I think in the june 2015 S2 paper you needed to score 71/75 in order to obtain an A* which sounds extremely difficult. Essentially, which module is easier to achieve an A* in

    M1 isn't an issue for me. I taught myself and achieved a B. I feel I didn't do enough past papers last year in M1

    if you have done well with S1 then S2 would be a natural follow-on.

    Well if so, look at the content you enjoy more but as per asked S2 but not by a milestone.

    M1 is good because although it can be hard, the grade boundaries are usually low so if you work hard at it you can get high ums. Plus I found with M1 you can easily improve by just doing loads of papers just before the exam.

    True, S2 seems the way to go
