How do you group expected values less than 5 in contingency tables? I haven't come across a question yet that asks for it to be done, but just wondering
I would also like to know this

You merge the column with the offending value with the next column.

was there a regional paper for 2015 aswell?
9. For June 2015 IAL (link in comment above), say if q 4a actually asked

"Find the probability that THREE randomly chosen sacks differ in weight by more than 0.5kg" how would you set the question up?

14. thank youuuu
15. How do you combine cells that have an expected frequency of <5 in contingency table questions?

Why would you choose to use the pmcc over spearman rank and vice versa?

Answers to both questions would be much appreciated

thank youuuu
let me know how you do - i am doing it atm
17. Does anyone know if someone is going to write out an Unofficial Mark Scheme after S3 exam?

Seems like Arsey doesnt do it for S3, but maybe if he sees there are many people asking for it he might do it this year... (I doubt)

Unofficial mark scheme(s) will undoubtably be made

If someone can get ahold of the paper after the exam I'd be happy to contribute/complete one, at least with the questions I am confident with
19. Has anyone done this question? In part a, you get 2.54 as an unbiased estimate for the variance, but then it straight up says that the variance is 2.56 despite this information only coming up in part b which hasn't happened yet.

Also, in part b why do we use 2.56 and not 2.54? Thanks.

See above - I'd be happy to try and help, though stats questions can be hard to remember if there is lots of data and tables provided

(Though really, I'd suggest focusing on whatever exams you have left rather than ones you've already sat but that doesn't work for everyone )
