    Hi! I can safely say that I am feeling much more confident about this than I did for M2! Hoping that the q on hypo testing errors is nice this year :crossedf:

    I actually felt quite optimistic about m2, but in s2 in a couple of the past papers there are questions that completely threw me (eg jan 12 q9iii) :///

    I thought it was OK except for the last parts of the last two questions. I finished quickly so I spent a lot of time on those.

    I think I got it right. Not sure though. Ok, so, its equally likely to take p=0.7 p=0.5 p=0.3. It is a type 2 error if you accept a false, so you have to work out the probability that it is 0.7, and the probability that you accept h0. So, you use two binomials, one binomial has 14, 0.7 and the other has 14,0.5. You then work out the probablility that both are less than 7 (accept h0). Then you must work out the probability of it being 0.7 or 0.5. So, the probability of it being 0.7 and accepting h0 is 1/3*the binomial calculation with 0.7 above, and the probability of it being 0.5 and accepting h0 is 1/3*the binomial calculation with 0.5 above. Add them up and that is the probability of a type 2 error, then you put that probability in a binomial with 4, because 4 tests, and you work out the probability that you get a type 2 error more than 1 time. I got 0.635 or something like that. Definitely started with a 0.6

    Q.8 part (ii) was horrible! But, apart from that, I thought it was a good paper!

    I'd say is worth focusing on the next exams than worrying about the ones you can change tbh x
