    Would I lose a mark for putting 1.00 (3sf) rather than 1 for the second conditional probability question?
    Nope, although in the context of the question, the answer is fairly obviously 1, and calculation wasn't required, but you should not lose a mark for that.

    for the hyp testing I did the critical region method (I totally didn't realise you could have used the other method, and I hadn't revised that method anyway)
    so I got X is more than equal to 20 as the region
    so I rejected the alternate hyp
    so the drug wasn't more effective

    but for the second question I got the critical region as x greater than or equal to 19, so I accept alternate hyp and the drug was more effective?

    did anyone get this?

    Did people get 0.0523 for the question about the probability that all 3 will be the same sweet
    yup!

    Yep that's the general consensus for the correct answer - first part accept H0, second part reject H0.

    Alright, finally managed to get these to upload.

    So this is the full question paper, one page per image, with my answers scrawled on. The decimals are rounded to 3sf or 4sf wherever appropriate, so if your answer doesn't match that then check if it does when rounded to 3 or 4 significant figures. The only one I'm unsure of is the last one, since there seem to be many different answers that people are getting, but it seems like the most logical answer to me.

    Daniel McLovin said he would post an unofficial markscheme if somebody had the question paper, so you can also wait for that if my messy final answers aren't sufficient

    How much was the last question out of?
    The box plot was 5, the first probabilities were 6 total, the next part was 2, the next part was 3 iirc

    Is it ok to say "there is an outlier at the upper end" rather than there are some outliers at the upper end?
    Yeah think its fine

    Did anyone happen to get a Question booklet out? I'll make a mark scheme if there is.

    Did people get 320/12 for the mean of the stem and leaf, 31 for the mode and can't remember the median but it was the 6.5th value
    Yep exactly what I got

    It depends on the mark scheme slightly, but I think examiners are allowed to make a judgement call, and if they notice what happened you'll either lose the A mark on each question, or possibly they'll take an arbitrary 1-3 marks away from that question but mark everything as though the 3 wasn't there. I'm not an examiner so don't take my word for it :P
    both of them scenarios you put there are me gaining some marks, do you think there is any way I could have lost all 18 marks if I did the right method all the way through but used 17 instead of 20?

    I had no idea how to do that
    It was the binomial probability of (1 6, 2 not 6), (2 6, 1 not 6), (3 6) added together.

    No, definitely not. I think the most likely scenario (assuming you put down all your workings and did the correct method) is that you would get all method marks and drop all the accuracy marks (normally 1 mark per question, but I think 1 part doubled up, so 6 marks total from that).

    Thank you, and did you do critical regions for the hypothesis tests?

    Yup, {20} for the 1% significance and {19, 20} for the 5%.

    For 8ii B) it's (what Duskstar says below this post, I answered the wrong question the first time)

    For 8v there are a few different answers floating around, but the way that I did it is as if Ben picks two that he doesn't like (i.e. two cherries) resulting in him having to pick more than two to get one that he wants. This gives (6/20)*(7/19) which results in 3/38

    8ii) B) was probability of all picking orange OR all cherry etc..

    That made it (7*6*5 + 6*5*4 + 4*3*2 + 3*2*1) / (20 * 19 * 18)

    8v) there is a lot of dispute about. I'll repost what I posted earlier:

    What I did was 1 - (14/20) - (6/20) * (14/19) - (6/20) * (5/19) * (14/18)

    I'm not 100% sure in what I did - I hope it's correct, but it's possible the third probability wasn't needed, and I haven't had time to think it through properly since the exam lol.
