    You'd do it in terms of the phi (cumulative distribution) function for the normal distribution. With quite a few inequalities

    \displaystyle \Phi(Z) = \Phi\left(\dfrac{X - \mu}{\sigma}\right)

    I doubt they'd expect it

    OK - would you use the percentage points for the critical region? Or like the method used in S2?

    Percentage points (or whatever the second 'nice' table is called! )

    I think grade boundaries will be:

    100 - 75
    90 - 69
    80 - 64
    June 2013 R maybe 2015?

    cool just did 2015 - got 65 (got the last 8 marks wrong and then made another 2 marks of rounding errors)

    Boundary wise tho, seems about right doesn't it?

    Question 7 of June 2013 R uses type II error with normal. I'm currently looking through the mark scheme trying to work out what the heck is going on.

    The F tables have values for v_1 and v_2 at infinity, do we use these if our v values are very large?

    I think that's what they're for, not sure why else they'd be there

    I agree, that's pretty much the only tricky part to a paper.

    Nope s4 isn't on IAL. I've got C4 at 9:30 then as my sixth form will only do two exam sessions I have to wait supervised by an invigilator until 2pm when I've got S4

    How did pple find it?
    Q1 was so long. What was your guys test statistic?
    Q2 was your test statistic 1.511?
    There was at algebra this which was lovely
    I had n>1 iff n^2+2n>3n giving the best estimator.
