    Oh then my formula would add up yes, so worst case scenario you can drop a mark. ****.If proof comes up for 3 marks I'm done for!
    I know right? Proofs are where I consistently **** up. They don't like my wording xD

    I just don't "get" proof. It's the same in C3 - I've just given up trying to be good at it tbh.

    Proof is okay! The questions are usually just "prove every number of this form is divisible by blah" or "prove 2^(1/2) is irrational", stuff like that. Its just a bit of algebraic rearranging.

    I was relying on the frameworks question for marks! I got an answer for everything... whether they were right who knows.

    Yeah, sorry for the bad description it didn't make any sense to me,but I just put it as though P was moving up the slope anyway and got a one decimal place answer so I dunno :/ haha

    aha, same here- we did stats ages ago (before October half term) so I can barely remember any of it.
    what are you getting in past papers?
    Aha it ranges, mostlY B's but I get so confused by permutations and combinations, I just can't identify one from the other
