    I see the point and would certainly be true if approximating binomial or poisson, but this wasn't an approximation. A problem is if you try find the probability of getting 50 marks or above for example, then you aren't finding that if you include 49.5 and above, like if you took a continuity correction.

    I doubt we will agree, I didn't use one, I suspect you did, so neither of us want to be wrong.

    I have a feeling it wasn't continuity corrections because I didn't get the mark I was hoping for .

    I think I thought it was rounding (when I was debating with you earlier) and I got 96...
