Always thought Mechanics was one of the A level Maths modules

Well clearly it's not part of math as a subject - it describes physical laws, not mathematical laws (there is no F=ma law in mathematics). You can't say it's applied math - all of science is basically applied math. I just found it really odd that they teach it in the math curriculum over there - I don't think it belongs there logically.

Well, what you think it is/isn't is quite irrelevant, as I'm talking about it in the context of the UK curriculum.
And why should we listen to you when you can't even spell maths properly?
I find it odd that you drop the s from Maths

Shocking that something like this can still be used against you, and even worse the employer can see that was the 'offence'

That is the physics curriculum, the maths part is a section of the maths curriculum dealing with application of ideas such as calculating acceleration of an object down a slope of a certain angle
A past paper as an example. No physics knowledge needed, just understand the mathematical principles behind it.
Exactly. Like I said, you also do a mechanics module in A Level Physics, but that approaches it from a much more Physics based direction (obv), with the actual explanation of the principles, rather than the mathematical representation.
