    I've gone and done the papers from 2004-2007 so far. S1 seems to be a bit of a hit or miss for me. I just got a B on last year's paper.

    For sd calculations, e.g. when a guy measures the height of 50 trees and records them or whatever, surely the S3 sd unbiased estimate formula applies??

    Could you give an actual example of that? I guess the answer to your question would be no but it'd be interesting to see.

    Look at the base first 0-4 is represented by 0.5cm. So 0.5/4 =0.125cm. Each age is represented by 0.125cm
    Now take the population 260/0.5 = 520. This would be the vertical scale, but we can now see that we are using a scale of 1/100 to get the height.

    Lets try the first question 16-44. This gives a width of 28. 28 x 0.125 = 3.5cm
    Now the height 1727/3.5 =493.4
    Divide by a 100 gives a height of 4.9cm
    Hope this helps

    It is not hard, everyone says its hard but it actually is not. The main problem is not reading/interpreting the question right OR if you make one silly mistake such a significant figure or even not typing into the calculator, it can cost you a lot of marks bc part a usually carries onto part b etc etc (Ofc you get ft marks though)

    I just recommend you do as many past papers.
