    Hello guys!

    I need to make my decision whether to take M3 or D1 by the end of March so please help me out! (all edexcel modules)So basically my problem is that if I take D1, I will have 3 exams on the same day (D1, M2 and Economics Paper 3) but if I take M3 I will take it before

    What do you guys think? An easy paper(D1) but risking the other exams, or the harder paper(M3)??!! Please help!!!!

    ofc D1, Grade boundaries are low and its an easy module. It is like a joke compared to m3 and even m2.

    meanwhile m3 is hard as **** and grade boundaries are high if i were u i wouldnt risk my A because m3

    Wait, you're taking them this year? I'd take D1. I took D1 over M3 (C1-C4, FP1-FP3, S1-S2, M1-M2, D1)

    I HATE D1, as an exam, doesn't feel right and struggle a bit with exam technique and learning all the content. But compared to M3, it is worth it, especially given the lower boundaries (due to it being taken by many single mathematicians or used as a dead module). If you are starting now, M3 may be more of a risk, and D1 is not difficult conceptually.

    Thankyou so much for your advice .

    Do you all think that it is possible to do well in D1 and my other subjects on that day?(M2 and Econs). I don't want to sabotage my chance of getting the grade thankyou again!

    Oh, sorry to confuse you! I'm taking 6 this year only the further maths module FP1, FP2, FP3, M2, S2, D1(orM3 lol)

    Completed all except for FP3, M3 and D1. Still on Integration in FP3. For D1, we have only 2 classes a week but it's really fast paced so completing it by the end of this week!

    Ah I'm doing the exact same but D1 :P with Maths too

    Damn! I've finished all but going over the applied as that's my weakest point but it's hard to juggle with everything else this year.

    How did you find FP2?

    I do not think you should equate the difficulty gap in the modules to having 3 exams on a day. Don't worry about it, it won't take too much of your time.
