    65/66 Max I think. May get to 67, but because of q.no.2, doubt it.

    It'll be no higher than 63 I'd say. The paper had a few trick Q's (Q 2, Ex^2 an the negative probability with 40 obeservations)

    I doubt it'll be as high as 67, but who knows. Marking my answers using the unofficial mark scheme, I probably got somewhere between 62 and 67, so I suppose I did well having done one half-assed past paper just before the exam.

    This tme last year, D1 got a grade boundary of 67 for an A and that was as hard as this test. S2 last January had a grade boundary of 65 and I found that paper about the same, but that's only my opinion.

    It'll be interesting to read the examiner report for S2 especially Q2!

    Anyone else doing C4 and M2 this January?

    Interesting read for Examier report on Q2. Grade broundries as well.

    But yeah, I think it will be 65/66 at most for an A, or else the 90 UMS would be not far off.

    I am doing M2, so nervous, wasn't good in M1, M2 no difference!

    For question 1a) for the two reasons why it shpould be distributed binomially, I put becaise it can only be two possible outcomes and because theyre independent from eachother. Will I get both marks because the first point is sort of implied in the question.

    I am pretty much think you will get both right. The number of trials is kind of implied on the question, not the success or failure.

    Any two from

    n must be finite
    success or failure
    independent
    probability of success constant

    I know I put three in the solutions but you didn't need to

    I put down all 4 - sometimes they may ask for two things, but worth 1 mark - seen them in the past. But it doesn't really make it obvious in the question how much they want - but 2 marks, so its 2 at least...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO!

    My whole life had been destroyed. My 3 answers to a 2 mark Question might not give me an extra mark. I think I'm losing my will to live.
