    I am currently studying A-level French, Maths and RS, and am aiming for the crazy goal of A*A*A*! Whilst I absolutely love Core Maths, I am struggling to get my head round Statistics, so I am crazily preparing for the exam this summer I will write updates on different attempts I have made to improve my understanding and how I am progressing in this module - please join in if you wish!

    I have found the AS revision guide very helpful when decoding the meaning behind Probability - I was struggling on my Binomial Distribution homework, but have managed to complete it thanks to my revision guide! (Phew!)

    My examboard is AQA by the way

    God, I hate stats. I do Edexcel Maths and Further Maths. Last year, I did modules C1, C2, M1, S1, D1, FP1. S1 was the only one of those modules in which I didn't get an A. I now do C3, C4, M2, M3, S2, FP2; S2 is by far the most difficult, and frankly, the most boring. Yet my teacher is pressuring me to ensure that my S2 skill is bound to get me an A*. Currently, I just don't see it happening.

    Are you talking about a graphical calculator, you could just have a casio calculator which is just £10
