    Why is question 13 36% instead of 50%

    30% of 800= 240+20%of 800=160
    240+160=400
    400 is 50% of 800
    You found 20% of the wrong thing :0

    That is what nearly everyone I know did however you needed to do 20% of 36% even i messed up

    Judging by past grade boundaries, about 32
    if I got 40 on here, what would I need to get on paper 2 to get a B?

    I totally messed this paper up. I got around 50 , I made so many silly mistakes and spend too long arghh so annoyed at myself now. I really want to get an A at least, do you think its possible to get an A overall if I do well on the other paper?
    Yeh you'll need like 85 ish to get an A

    Also, on Q15 (box plot one), when asked to compare the distribution, would mentioning the IQR & Range be enough, or would I have needed to also mention the medium to gain that mark?

    No, all you need is the IQR and medium they're crucial.
