    Mechanics is fine. Just like all the other applied modules they are easier than Core. You should be ok with whatever applied module your sixthform make you do.

    With mechanics, I found that you think it's going pretty bad until you get to the end and realise there's only a handful of questions they can ask you in the exam.

    I found mechanics very hard at first but I ended up getting 94% which was the best result out of all of my exams, spend time understanding the concepts of why things work, after that the maths is pretty easy all you need to know really is basic trigonometry and the suvat equations

    Imo very frustrating at the start but if you keep at it then you'll soon see that its just applying the same techniques a lot of the time. Just don't give up when it gets hard. I probably done more work for mechanics than all my other modules.
    I found it the most difficult but also the most enjoyable.

    I found Mechanics far more enjoyable than Statistics. Persist and it won't be difficult.
