Set up a poll. All you'll get is spam otherwise. Go on thread tools and add poll and set it up there.

If you enjoy a good sleep during lessons, choose statistics. Otherwise, go for Mechanics.

Mechanics by a long way. S1 is so boring, although i have heard S2 and S3 are far more interesting.

Statistics is a little tedious (IMO) - I much prefer Mechanics. In terms of difficulty though, I would say they are about on par with each other (although initially Mechanics was a bit more tricky).

It really varies from person to person. I found mechanics really hard to get my head around at first, but I've got significantly higher marks in M1+M2 than S1+S2. It's much easier to drop marks in stats, I find.

I agree.Once you have got your head around the basic pricipals in Mechanics, I think you can acheive a high mark.Wheras in statistics, you can lose marks through little mistakes fairly easily.

i believe its easy to get a higher mark in statistics than mechanics with less practice...

Physics = Statistical Mechanics, actually.

At a level you don't learn what the hell your doing in stats. With mechanics its a different ball game requiring a thorough understanding.
