Has someone posted the paper yet?
(Original post by fefssdf)
No :/ but hoping it comes out today ; I NEED to know my marks ; it's really stressing me out

What about Q6 a?? Are you sure there was 9 samples, not 6??
(Original post by gameofthrones1)
Yeah I'm pretty sure it was 9
WHy? isn't it 44 66 88 46 48 68 which makes 6? Especially if i got the second part right, where total probability of these 6 makes 1, which is correct.

How many marks was it, 3?
you'd lose one for accuracy I'd say

3. Hi, I think I got 61 or 62 out of 75. What UMS should I roughly expect to get alongside the grade boundaries ?
4. (Original post by AlexFrangos)
I made a mistake in the critical region question, i found X>=11 rather X>=9 and so the next parts of that question went wrong. Do you think i will lose all the marks in that question?
Umm You will get Method marks if any.
But I don't think you can get A/B marks on mark scheme
The last part of that questions is asking if the conclusion would change. I think you could get one of them correct.

Yeah, you're right. But if the mark scheme is very lenient and says "B1 ft", then he will get full marks in those parts. I could see it happening

Well, since i found the wrong critical region, the last part of that question went also wrong. So will i lose all the marks in that question, even for the actual significance and the comment on whether you should accept Ho? Also in the question we had to prove that a=2b and we were given that the mode = 1, i read that the mean was 1 but i did get the correct answer as the mean was equal to the mode. Do you think i will also loose marks in that question?

77-80
8. How mayn UMS would 65-67 marks out of 75 be? any thoughts?

Mid / high A - anywhere between 84-90
10. 70/75 marks, UMS?

Probably like 90-92.

If your conclusion is not the same with the actual answer, I think you will lose 1 mark. There is just 2 mark for 2 question in that part. I think you will be able to get one correct.

Hmm i think you will lose some marks because the formula you used it not correct. But I have no idea how they are going to mark the paper. Usually they gave 25% to 50% marks to incorrect method.
13. If i get above 90 average in fp2, m2 and s2 and c3 and c4, can i get A* in both maths and further maths even if my d1 and d2 is somewhere between 60-70? My AS modules are all well above 90 except S1 which was 83.

It depends upon how high above 90 they are; but, yes, you definitely could!

C1-100

I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure your best grades go towards maths and then the remainder go to further maths, so if S1 and S2 were your best applied then they go to maths... That means you will get an A* in Maths but probably an A in further maths unless D2 and your other 2 best A2 level modules average out to 270/300. I'm not entirely sure if that's how it works so don't take my word for it.

According to priority:
3. Maths UMS
4. Further maths UMS

What they are going to do if the first priority(maths grade) is the same for any combination? Do they skip it with the lowest UMS(because it is an A* anyway) to allow further maths to be as high as possible?
I thought they will prioritize to make both Maths and Further maths as high as possible, which is A* (if they take C1,C2,C3,C4,D1 and D1 for Maths and M1,S1,FP1,M2,S2 and FP2 for further maths, in which case both subjects will be an A*). Is that correct or this combination is not possible? Or they make Maths a very high A* and therefore i will get an A for further maths and miss my offer from Imperial?

I am pretty sure my maths grade will be an A*, even if they take D1 and D1 for maths, as i need an average of above 90 only in C3 and C4 for an A*. My best applied is definitely going to be Mechanics, and if it goes to maths, i have no chance of getting an A* in fmaths.

I would assume they would make sure you got the highest grades in both otherwise it wouldn't make much sense. However the module combinations should be fine for both maths and further maths assuming you meant D1 and D2 for regular maths.
