Just thought I'd set up a thread for anybody studying AQA A level statistics. Feel free to ask general questions and discuss the exams next week.

Hi all. Hope it is all going well. So which units are you all doing/done this exam series. This series im doing all of them lol, S1 to S6. How did S5 go for you all, it seemed to go ok but my revision for s4/s5/s6 has been minimal, i put my all my eggs into the AS units. Infact I am currently trying to get my head around Acceptance Sampling right now (i kno its a bit late) and Statistical process control. I think im okish with anova but im not expecting anything great tomoz.

It is good to know that other people do actually do this course! It feels like my school is the only one. Hope you did well?

Ikr, I know no one else who does this. My college doesnt even have a course for it so i am teaching myself. With the exams, Id say some went well, like S1, but i did quite badly on S3 and S6 but that is wholly due to me not revising either unit (I missed out the whole ANOVA question at the end ). Given the amount of revision I had done for S4/S5, they went better than expected but not great. Hope it went well for you.

Yeh same, I'm starting this course in September and I can't wait! But can you tell me if you find it boring because a lot of people told me not to do it because of this?

Thanks

This really depends on the person tbh. Many people hate statistics, some people like it and get to grips with it. I personally enjoyed it, there were some parts which I found boring, but many more parts were interesting.

I love stats! I'm a bit of a stats nerd It's not boring, but it depends how your mind works. I'm not mathsy at all but I am quite logical. Plus I had amazing teachers

Thanks, its nice to hear someone saying something positive about stats for once. I recently (a week ago) did a taster session and really enjoyed myself, although I must admit I was shock at being told I need to pay £50 for a cassio graphics calculator!

I did this a level without the graphics calculator as I was told it could be done. And was a bad idea :facepalm: . It makes it soooo much easier, more so at A2 (well less time consuming certainly and given that i ran out of time in 2 of the 6 stats exams i wish i did get the graphics calc). I'm sure if you have enjoyed their taster session there is a good chance you will enjoy the a level as well.

Some went ok ish but some went quite badly, in the sense that i couldnt finish the paper. The exams were not hard but I could certainly have prepared more and done more past papers to get used to the style.
