    aaah, got my stats 1 exam tomorrow and I have not started revising for it yet. I cannot do past papers yet because I have to trawl through all the notes and learn the methods and important formulas etc. Aim to get 5 past papers done, but any advice on stats and can I get an A? Did the exact same with C1, but i guess thats a lot easier. I cant even answer one question on the past papers. and, dont mind doing an all nighter! thanks everyone x

    You'll be up all night i think - you must have a basic understanding? tbh stats itself isn't that hard when you're reading out of the revision guide by sometimes they ask you in a really weird way in the exam that throws you off. But just do past papers from now, i really don't think you have enough time to learn notes etc.

    If you have an integral maths account from school use that because each module is summed up onto literally 8 sides of paper and then you could learn the whole course tonight by that? If you have integral maths that is

    I've done exactly the same thing as you, I've put off revising it because stats is so tedious to learn, discrete random variable x blah blah blah, anyway today I've spent 3 hours reading my revision guide, 7 hours doing the lessons on mymaths, and I'm going to stay awake all night doing past papers, It's tough but a gallon of coffee+energy drinks should do the trick :grin:

    I just did a past paper... Thought I did okay (perhaps a B?), but when I'd marked it and looked up the grade boundrys, was one Mark off a C.
    Admittedly a few stupid mistakes, but I doubt tomorrow's paper will be as nice as that one (Jan 2013).... So I guess I'm doomed!!

    Yes I'm hoping the same!! And even if it is a bad exam, the hopefully our C1 and C2 will pull the grade up!

    So... How did we all find it? I personally thought it was awful, perhaps not the hardest paper in general, but there were quite a few parts that I struggled with!
