    Hi Guys.
    I was wondering how much time are we allowed for the controlled assessment?
    Is it shown by the exam board?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I did Statistics last year and if I remember correctly we were given 8 hours I think? I'm not sure though, better as your teachers

    We were given
    proposal: 1 hour - to copy out what we had written and edited at home
    report: 3 hours - to discuss the layout etc. and then to begin collecting our data before we had to complete the rest of it at home over a period of about 2 weeks (wouldn't have been this short if the teacher had remembered to start this when we were meant to back in December - instead we started in February)
    evaluation/ conclusion: 1 hour- agaun to copy out by hand what we had written and edited at home

    We also had bits and pieces at lunch times totalling about another hour so total: 6 hours
    We may well have been allowed more however we are the only set doing statistics early (year 10) so we have to cover the year 10 stuff plus the stats in the same time as everyone else is just covering the year 10 stuff so our teacher hurries through everything to try and keep up with the other sets while still doing the statistics.

    I think overall I probably spent in the region of 40-50 hours on it but I'm a perfectionist and a lot of it was also edited several times after our teacher changed his mind about formatting etc.

    Umm we had one hour in class and I probably spent 6-10 hours on it at home. Actually I suppose we technically had one hour where we were being told all about it and 1 hour to write it up so that's two hours. Not long though and you'll be looking to out extra hours in at home

    Oops
    I don't think it was a time limit so much as what our teaxher was willing to let us have out of our lesson time (we're doing the stats on top of our year 10 work and he gets very competitive with the second set teacher as to who is furthest ahead)
