    The mean DECREASED guys, not stayed the same, we're dealing with classes here. The value of 3.43 will add one to the frequency of the 3-3.5 class. The way we work out the estimate is to multiply the midpoint of the class by the frequency. Hence, since the midpoint of this class is 3.25, which is lower than the mean, the mean decreases.
    You could have also done the actual calculation to check, the mean decreased

    EDIT: I'll explain this better. The mean before the added values was 3.43. Now there's an added value of 3.43. This adds one to the frequency of 3-3.5 class. In working out the value of the mean, you have to multiply mid point by frequency. Hence, you don't actually deal with 3.43 but rather 3.25, the mid point of the class. Since this value is less than 3.43 the mean decreases.
    Try the calculation out for yourself and please amend the unofficial mark schemes.
    But the mean is equal to the figure so it stays the same, it is just two marks, don't make it complicated

    Assuming C3-4 90UMS is not cocky. Assuming anything in a level isn't cocky.

    I haven't seen the question, but my impression would be that it's either justified or not rather than being able to argue from both sides.

    The mean was 3.73 and the median was 3.43, some people are saying that the fact that there is a difference means that the data is skewed but others are saying that its such a slight skew that it can be seen as symmetrical

    They're right, you have to use the midpoint of the class so the mean will decrease.

    Does the standard deviation stay the same? Or change as well?

    I've got one up, but I'm not sure how accurate it is. Arsey isn't allowed to make them any more so we can't expect any from him
    why cant he make them!!??

    changed it to 58 since I saw the percentage of people who found it hard. Personally, I thought it wasn't too bad, not easy. Think i lose like max 13 marks myself because of the stupid mistakes and theory questions.
    Yes i am re-sitting but I flopped it last year and only did S1 for a week before the exam, also a lot of Y12 kids I know said it wasn't hard. Maybe because they're from a grammar school. So i based it off that before. Regardless it was my personal incorrect prediction. Dont get so worked up
    no worries, it will most likely be 58 for an A due to the fact that there were a lot of sneaky 1/2 markers that would have caught people off, a few people from my further maths class retook this module and admitted to not doing one or two of the one markers because they were so unambiguous, good luck anyway

    Oh, I can see why it'd be debatable then
