I have taken advanced physics courses since January 2020, and some of the content is similar to M2. I still kept some notes on mechanics and I think they will assist me for M2. I have enrolled for M1 in January 2021, after a 2-month self study. I think I am going to use three months to self teach M2 if I take the exam, which can also act as an insurance to S1 as the exam yesterday went very badly.
Do you think I can take M2 instead of retaking S1?

If you're awful at statistics then go for it. Someone in my class just started M2 and the school isn't teaching it until a while later. I think I also did it in just a couple months, after dropping out of physics, and I also had FP2, S3 and Chemistry 4 to do

I am quite worried that I may receive an awful ums mark for S1 based on the paper yesterday. It was quite difficult. So, should I retake the module or take M2?

Well it depends on whether you're done with statistics. If you do Further Maths you need S1, so you should retake it and hold off M2 if S1 is too much work, but if you only do single maths and just need 2 modules then if you hate statistics enough and feel great about mechanics in general it's not a bad idea. If you did well in M1 and your AS physics you'll do great

Is this similar to M2 projectiles? I am now considering M2, and I have to enrol for June exams very soon. I am doing single maths.

M2 includes projectile motion which is the same as you shown but it only accounts for one question in M2.

There are also many other contents in M2 which are very similar to physics mechanics. But there are two topics I can figure out that are not covered in physics, restitution and gravity centre for laminar, but in two months self study, I am sure you can grasp them.

Good luck anyway!
