    Hi guys,
    Would I still get full marks on a question about calculating standard deviation and the mean by doing it on a calculator? It's the only way we have been taught how to do it and it seems pretty quick/efficient to do it on the calculator.

    My doubt comes from the fact that I may not get method marks, although the answer is still correct.Any help would be much appreciated!Thanks!

    It depends on the question. If imagine its a 3 mark question you dont show any working out you will still get all the marks.
    But it if a 5 or 6 mark question then its best to show the working out.

    Check ExamSolution the tutor has explained the method really well.
