These 2 words are nearly the same in meaning.

I think 'consecutive' is used to say 'in series' of a "known" order. For examples:' days of week' is a known order. Months of year, 1 2 3 ..., 2015 2016 2017...,... are known order.

This is derived from 'sequence': sequential -- one after/following another in a sequence.

'successive' is used to say a 'continuation of many' events/things -- without a gap/break.

But it is quite difficult to make a 'rule'. We may have to learn by observing/copying their use.


I agree with Khun sr for the use of these two words.
