It was alright. I took the whole syllabus in one year and chose probablity & statistics. Honestly, i didn't like mechanics. I found statistics easier if you like more theory and writing in a way.
Also, pure maths is not bad if you learn through solving past papers, and i mean, only hard and complicated exercises. that's the only way i found works for me.
But, if had another chance in life -and i cannot stress this enough- i would never have chosen it voluntarily. It's just terrible.

Pure maths was easiest for me by a long shot, then Mechanics, then Statistics, but this is completely individual (I sit WJEC so have to do all 3). I did the course in a year as I'm also taking Further Maths and didn't struggle too much, but I work my backside off 24/7 and ensure that my abilities are fluent for the whole syllabus. Those who actually studied in their free time and completed all of the work set (and often, much, much more) got A*s. The others? Not so much.
Only take it if you're truly passionate about maths or are willing to put the work in. I've seen so many people who take it because they got an A* at GCSE without any work and then completely flunk A-Level. The step up to A-Level can be pretty jarring, even for the most prepared students.

the last two lines sum up pretty much my old class

Tbh the lesson I find easiest and most satisfying to do. Pure is by far my favourite mechanics are harder and more diagram based but still good and statistics is okay, I’d recommend doing it for a levels! Edexcel spec btw but it does get harder in year 13

There's no longer a choice in England. All students have to study some Stats and some mechanics.
