I am a retake student

this year I am doing maths and further maths and will be starting again from year 12

I had AAD for C1, C2, M1

I am still surprised how low I got for M1 and thats the reason I am taking it. I love mechanics and find statistics extremely difficult

So over the two years is this the easiest mathematics module set?

AS Maths- C1, C2, M1 A2 Maths- C3, C4, M2
Further AS MATHS- FP1, FP2, D1 At A2 Further Maths- FP3, D2, S1

additional question: is FP2 considered to be at AS generally or at A2?

I have never done further maths before

C1 and D1 should be the easiest. Obviously though, when you've finished you might feel like C2, M1 and S1 were all pretty easy too.

FP2 is A2 FM

I would pick stats over mechanics, if you want an easy way out.

Other than M1, the other mechanics modules are a *****. Even S3 is remarkably simple compared to M2

FP2 is an A2 module.

S2 is an easy module, so try to include that.

D1 and S2 are really easy, just memorisation basically.

Techincally FP2 can be done in AS FM (I think) but there is no reason to do so.

For Further Maths (including Maths applied units) I did FP1-2, S1-4, M1 and D1. Could probably have swapped M1 for D2 if I wanted to but otherwise for me that was the easiest FM combination.

S4 for Edexcel I think is significantly more easier than S3, and of similar difficulty to S2 and not completely boring.

Honestly, if you're looking for the easiest, stay away from the higher mechanics modules and FP3. I say do S1-3, M1-2, and D1.

The only difficult thing that I found in FP1 was the proof by inductions part which I don't think you have to do in the other FP modules. S2 is an absolute pain in the a** to do, truth be told. M2 is a pretty good module to do; the only problem I found with it was the centre of masses part so make sure you fully understand that asap. I heard that D2 is pretty hard to do as well because it's just so weird. Going by what you've said about you being good at Mechanics, I would personally recommend that you do M3 instead of D2. Best of luck!

Presuming Edexcel is your exam board: out of the optional modules that you might be considering, FP3 and M4, M5 are hardest; D1, D2, S1, S2, M1, M2 are all relatively easy in my opinion. Mechanics is easier if you do Physics as well. Decision and stats (especially S1 and D2) are easy but boring. I think M3 is somewhat harder than the easy modules, but easier than FP3 and M4, M5. Your suggested set of modules is decent (although you'd need to swap modules around to make it possible), but I think replacing FP3 with either S2 (giving you the modules I did) or M3 (if you like mechanics) might make it a bit easier. FP2 is A2.
