    Hello, last year I got an A in AS maths with 82 UMS in S1. I didn't find it too bad but there was few tricky probability Qs and I struggle with graphs. I also got an A in AS physics. I'm already down to do S2 this year, but I have last chance to change tomorrow if I want and I'm unsure whether I should carry on with Stats or do M1. I found mechanics quite easy last year in physics, but I tripped up on some of the questions (e.g inclined planes). My career goal is medicine and I need an A in maths as part of the offer.

    Which one is easier to score more highly on/ lower chance of silly mistakes etc...?

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance

    just stick with stats. M1 is pretty easy but there's no point now that you've learned (probably) most of S2.

    Thank you! We haven't actually started learning the S2 content yet (still doing C4). But I see what you mean - as I've already covered S1.

    If you haven't started learning s2 yet I would definitely go for m1. Especially if your continuing with physics. I'm doing M1 this year having done S2 last year and imo M1 is a lot easier.

    ooh. ok makes sense now. you actually have an advantage because you do physics (there are a few relationships which you help with M1 such as Newton's laws, SUVAT equations and just general motion) but you've also done S1 so you have a good basis of stats.

    your pick! M1 was actually my best module last year by far, suprisingly as I expected it to be the worst out of the 3 and the exam wasn't exactly easy.

    Thanks! I don't do physics anymore, but I did it to AS. M1 looks easier, but it seems a bit more unpredictable?
