    I know this was ages ago, but me and some others were for some reason discussing it before today's exam. Did anybody do the W2 written alternative paper? The question with the U test, did you accept or reject your NULL hypothesis? The question suggested that from the data you accepted 'the hypothesis', but i dont know if it meant the null one or not?
    Thanks

    You always accept or reject the null hypothesis not the alternative one

    ok. thats what i thought the answer probably was. although it said if such and such is higher than such and such then the hypothesis can be accepted. But i guess it was reffering to the null hypothesis. Stupid Whitney U test, never heard of it before then.
