Hello guys

I hope you guys are well. Can I ask advice on A level Statistics and in particular the coursework component for AS level.

I am totally new to Maths Statistics. What are they looking for in the A level Statistics coursework component? How do I make sure that I get the highest grade?

Can you please guide as it is my first time

Many Thanks

What exam board are you on? I remember that it was AQA that had a coursework element. If it is not too late then choose Edexcel as there is no coursework - only written exams.

Thanks dear

I am studying A level Statistics for AQA but I could change it to Edexcel if needed.

Is it a difficult course and how difficult is it? Did you get an A?

I am trying to study 4 A levels in 6 months. Is that possible?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Yes I am studying 4 A levels. I am sure what two of the subjects will be: A level Critical Thinking and Religious Studies. If things go well, I will study A level Statistics. The 4th one will probably be A level Environmental Studies.

I have completed 4 A levels before - Sociology, Psychology, Law and Politics and achieved 4 A grades.

Are you studying for four A levels as well?

Only Statistics? Or are you doing other modules such as Core Maths, and Mechanics with the aim of getting an A-Level in Mathematics?

How difficult something is depends on you entirely. Subscribe to this guy on YouTube for great study tips. Anything can be learned if you have the motivation, are disciplined and work hard. Of course, you will need this great man's help when studying Statistics or Mathematics in general.

In regards to your last question I don't believe it is. Especially if you mean the entire A-Level (AS & A2). But that is just my opinion. If you meant 4 AS Levels then yes, it is perfectly possible.

As far as I'm aware Edexcel don't offer an A-level in Statistics. Ones that do are AQA and OCR MEI, and perhaps a few boards that I haven't heard of.

Just to clarify, from your experience and knowledge, do you think it is possible to study for 4 A levels and achieve 4 A grades, and complete them in only 6 months (and not the traditional academic 2 years for AS/A2)?

I don't mean 4 AS levels in 6 months. I actually mean 4 full A levels (AS/A2) in
6 months

No, sorry.

6 months is not enough to study, learn, remember and exam practice for 4 full A-Levels. That is unless you have no job and are studying full time (37.5 hours+ a week) and have access to tutors or teachers that can give you guidance and help you with more difficult concepts.

If you have a good learning technique then perhaps it might be possible but I would not recommend trying it.

Nevertheless, I wish good luck to you in all your endeavors.

Hello Maggie

Well, I just want emulate Leonardo Da Vinci and replace him as the greatest polymath ever.

So the first thing I want to do is to study for the most A levels ever. It should be around 55-65 A levels. You will not understand this if you do not have the passion for self-improvement and continuous intellectual development.

I want to give this goal my greatest shot. Oh and to add to the above, I want straight As well
