Hey, I think you're cutting it a bit fine with the list of topics- ive got my stats exam on Friday too. But I'll try to gve you some idea of some essential things ya need to know!

*Standard Deviation
*Spearmans Rank Correlation Coefficient (this has come up in every practise test i've done)
*Box plots
*Cummulative frequency
*Crude Rates
*Weighted averages
*Comparative pie charts

This is assuming that you're doing higher tier...

good Luck!!!

I can't remember for certain, it was 2 1/2 years ago since I touched that, it hasn't come up in my A-Level statistics modules - if it hasn't come up on any of your past papers then it probably isn't on your specification. But the AQA specification says on one line, looking very innocent:

"Time Series: Line Graphs"

Sorry I can't be of any more help.
