    Hi, i've just taken up maths. And ive been given a booklet, it says, the board is OCR

    and the modules needed to study, are
    Core maths 1 - 4721
    core maths 2 - 4722
    mechanics 1

    or

    stats 1
    which are studied from sep to may.

    I had to make a choice, and i chose stats. Now i dont understand how it works. Will i study mechanics at all in the 1st yr or not?

    And does anyone, know, if this board is any good/easy/hard?

    No, you won't. Instead you'll have an applied lesson where you'll have stats. Next year you'll get the choice of starting either M1 or S2 for your A2 modules.

    hi
    i am also doing As maths same as you.
    i did core1 in december last year, and now i am doing core2 and statistics 1.
    and for A2 i have a choice i can either do mechanics 1 or statistics 2.
    if i had done mechanics 1 now i would have got a choice in mechanics 2 or stats 1.
    i hope i sorted out your confusion.

    Why not discuss this with your teacher(s)? There may be other options we can't know about. For example, you could teach yourself D1. It's not too difficult.
