    speaking as one, no. Lot of people in my maths class are really bad at common sense and are unable to adapt their understanding in different situations. Lot of people found mechanics 1 difficult because it requires a bit of common sense

    yeah its ome of thr most applied mpdules which is why so many people struggle as its not just hears the problem you already know the process too use the numbers we give you and find the solution
    its more like heres a situation and some numbers find out what to do with it and work out the problem

    It was difficult but nothing someone comfrotable with the spec couldn't do
    I di use a trial and error method for one of the questions however

    idk if I'd call what M1 requires common sense. More just a kind of intuition with very simple physical situations.

    Whats your opinion
    I don't think so. Maybe mutual interests in mathematics, but not a common sense necessarily. *
