    You know the question about testing mean= 0.5, didn't people think that was a bit weird?? I haven't really seen that before, I used to confidence limits as critical region and as it wasn't it critical region I concluded that mean=0.5 is valid,
    Did anyone else do the same, because it said don't do any further calculations

    june 2014 a boundary -64
    june 2013 a boundary -61
    june 2012 a boundary -62

    i think this paper's should be low, bc june 2014+2013 were not that hard, maybe 63 at most, i think it'll be 60

    Same. My only mistake was the sampling one. Hopefully I'll get 3 marks for the right answer. I'm expecting anywhere between 69-72.

    The one where it said what should the boys conclusion be I put the correct answer but I said at the 1% level not realised it is the same for all v=3, so I thi9nk they will deduct 1 mark right?

    Same situation for me! Hope s2 is not different to past papers like s3, hope fp2 doesn't have any super difficult questions either

    Now that people have seen mark schemes everyone thinks they got over 67 so probably a star, so couldn't have been that hard, just the one 5d question which was weird
