    i found Higher Tier easier than Paper 5 (non calc). i've got to say that this years papers have been dissappointing. No questions on nth tem, completing the square, histograms, box plots and standard deviation came up.

    standard deviation is no longer part of the syllabus thats why, that answers one q.
    a slight nth term came up in the investment q, but i know what type of q you mean and i;m glad they didnt come up.

    Hey everyone - yeah I think that paper went great .
    Could do most of the questions. One dead silly easy question I messed up was the one about the mean. To calculate the mean you have to multiply the the middle of the range by the frequency not the highest value! Duh!

    Silly me! Anyway that question was worth 4 marks as well... But I showed my working so how many marks would i get for that lol? I got the method just multiplied the wrong numbers! What a clot...

    i dont think so, i'm not sure i just remember that we were told it was no longer in the syllabus and so we didnt learn it. I only used it for my coursework and that was it.
