This is a maximum concurrence. Thank you.

Is there an official unofficial mark scheme?
2. (Original post by iMacJack)
Anyone please remember the workings out and answer for Sxy

3. I laughed so hard at the dancing/wiggling bees. The invigilator came over to ask me if I was crying.

R= 1/X

Hence E(R)=

(1/(-2) * 0.175)+(1/(-1) * 0.15)... + (1/(2) * 0.175)
Basically take 1 over the values when calculating E(X) and multiply by the probability for each. Hope this helps
Thank you very much what answer should that give by the way?

Srs? Are you going to snap a picture of your nether regions and compare it too?

I don't understand what you're saying but yeah sure. Wiggle.

Haha yeah I did that method too. Does seem harsh for 1 mark when I have seen questions like that worth 3 marks on the Solomon papers.
Yeah , I feel like they swapped marks around on that paper , the last question i don't think should have been 3 marks ... but I'm not complaining

Hey mate do you remember the values when you had to calculate Sxy on the one where you had to show Syy = whatever? Thanks bro

8. For the question that asks what happens to the pmcc value when adding the new x and y values to the data, what was the reasoning behind it?

I put that correlation would decrease so the pmcc would increase (closer to 0) because the new x and the new y values were above the mean x and the mean y value. This suggests that the more rainfall gave more sunshine so does not show show negative correlation

I ended up putting the same. Wonder if we will get credited or not.

That's what I put as well. The two values don't fit the trend of the other values which makes it less of a negative correlation so pmcc will be closer to zero.

I'm sorry, my memory sucks ... I don't remember the numbers , I just remember how i answered them :P

That's the way I did it, but I think we misunderstood the question. The number was not selected twice, it was selected once. We were then supposed to find the probability that that value would be larger for Sarah/ Rebecca.
Hopefully enough of us did it this way that we will get two marks? I can't stand the idea that I lost 4 so easily. Damn. I should have listened to that little voice in my head that was complaining I was doing too much work for four marks.
14. (Original post by Mia66)
that's so good to hear! I was just worried that the exam board will prioritise maths and place the module with the highest ums in maths
No, they will arrange the applied units to give you the best grades, don't worry
15. (Original post by JustOneLastTime)
I got 17 aswell but I'm not sure if its right
I got 17.4 something, and rounded up to 18 people
16. (Original post by veldt127)
UMS doesn't scale exactly with marks; the gap between 90-100 and 80-90 isn't necessarily the same.
It's almost always been 7 (sometimes 6 but not in years) so that's how it should be this year too
17. (Original post by ejk99)
Can someone explain how to calculate Syy with sd and mean please?
What you had to do was write out the Standard Deviation Formula. You can work out SigmaY by multiplying the mean by the number of vlaues Because they tell you what the SD is, you only have one "unknown" and that is Sigma(Y^2). So, you work that out by rearranging. And then if you know that, you can just plug values into Syy Formula.

For 1 Mark though, an absolute disgrace.

It was 33 I think.

0.45

What grade would I get overall if I had
C1(68/75), C2(73/75), S1(55/75)?

Should be a very solid A.
