    So those of you who have done OCR A Level Maths would know unless you do Further Maths come year 2 you need to choose between doing: decision 1, mechanics 1 or statistics 2.
    Based on difficulty of questions, grade boundaries and just overall personal experience what would you recommend?

    Added note:
    My subjects are: Maths, Physics, Computing and Graphics Design

    Hi, I am currently doing A level maths. I do know however people who do further maths and so have done D1 and M1, and they said D1 is by far the easiest, but M1 is not hard either. Some of them found timing an issue in D1 in the exam, and those that want to do engineering enjoyed M1 more. I am currently doing M1, but people in my class are teaching themselves D1 as well just in case they do badly in M1. I find M1 okay, especially because I am doing physics. The majority of it is the stuff you do in physics mechanics, you just have friction as well. I honestly know nothing of S2, I know of one person doing it. I personally didn't like S1, so I guess I can't give much of an opinion.

    Yeah I've heard D1 is the easiest but also fairly fast pace and not particularly interesting. M1 I'll be able to see how I get on with it in physics so that'll give me some indication. S2 I also know nothing about but at least I know what the course is (something I can't say for the other two at the moment)
