    I'm currently in year 12 and studying both Edexcel M1 and AQA Physics Mechanics and Materials section and we're studying each topic at the same pace (eg resolving forces, suvat, f=ma, momentum and impulse) so my question is, are there any obvious differences I should take note of when approaching these questions in exam papers? And is there any point in me writing notes for both M1 and the mechanics part for physics when they cover a lot of the same topics?

    I studied Edexcel M1 and AQA Physics too

    As far as I remember there are no differences in terms of questions on the same topic... but just remember that each unit may have more topics that you need to revise for, and that there are far more questions in M1 to practice from but good to practice the Physics ones after.

    Hi Sean.
    Is statistics important in electronic engineering?
