    I was wondering if anyone had access to the Jan 2012 set of Examiners' Reports for Edexcel GCE Maths? Thanks in advance.

    Have they even been released yet? Can't see them on Edexcel's website. I always thought they came out with the grade boundaries the day before results day.

    According to Edexcel's schedule (http://www.edexcel.com/iwantto/Pages...on-papers.aspx), the examiner reports will come out five days after results day. The date mark schemes out on TSR is the same date listed on that schedule - so I think it's accurate.

    It's a document which goes through each question in a past exam and gives an analysis of how candidates did as a whole... for example, it could say:

    Q5 a) Almost all candidates gained full marks on this question, where the majority gained at least 2 out of 3 of the marks available.


    Often on lesser well-answered questions, it will give more of an analysis and will probably highlight subjects/ideas which many candidates got wrong.

    oh I had a hunch that it might be like that, thank you for confirming my suspicions

    I really want to see what they put regarding the ambiguous weather/hypothesis test question in the S2 paper.

    Was it ambiguous though? I didn't have any problem with it in the exam personally, I got that it was one tailed. I'm more interested in what they said about the definition of 'level of significance'. I lost a mark because I didn't put 'when H0 is true' at the end of mine :dry:

    My teacher said it was ambiguous but I got that question right, too. There was a very similar question in a recent paper about a girl who was guessing answers to questions in a multiple-choice test, or something.
