I compared people's UCAS point scores and their league position of their university...took a while to calculate but it was quite interesting! Got my data from sixth form office

Is this GCSE Stats yea?
I did a really obscure one....It was the correlation between age...and the guess of how many smarties there were in a jar. We went around all the classes in our school and asked them to guess how many smarties there were in the jar......there were 987 I believe, we had real fun couting them. It was even more fun eating them all after that!!!

Most people in our class did boring ones likes the correlation between age and guesssing the length of a piece of string (psh string will never be as interesting as smarties!!!)

Have fun!!!

On that note, its far easy to get such information from text books/internet etc than it is getting more specific correlation data.
