    found statistics MUCH easier than mechanics (did further maths), but I'm not really a physics person. found stats really straightforward, if you know your stuff.

    I agree with Sarika.

    I did further maths AS so therefore did S2 this year. I found it to be really easy to understand and once you get the topics, you just repeat the same processes over and over again for each question.

    I'm doing M2 next year so I don't know much about it, but I really liked S2 because of its logical aspect (very much unlike S1), and it was a really short module (only 4 or 5 chapters!)

    Good luck anyway!

    No way. S2 is half the thickness and half the difficulty... I only do M2 because im applying for natsci, and I find Physics maths more interesting.

    S2 if you dont want to spend ages on the rubbish..

    cool, my teacher seems to be more reluctant to teach S2 to the top set, which is abit strange, as most of the class wants to do S2. Thanks for the advices peeps.

    Oh definately M2, S2 is so boring. Although i suppose it depends on what kinda thing you're think of doing later on. I'm doing M2 cos i want to do Architecture, thought it'd be more useful.
