    I m a retake student doing maths and further maths and physics
    I m extremely worried about (graphic) calculator tricks and tips regarding statistics. In my previous school the teachers had a lot of expitience with the calculator tricks as the entire years always were supplied with same calculators
    Calculator = fx 9860G2


    This can save a lot of time in the exam however I m bit sure on how am I going to learn the calculator tricks on my own...
    Also if you have to rate stats, would you rate s1 above c2 in terms of hardness or under c2?

    Maybe speak to your old teacher or a friend who is/was in the classes, etc. Not the end of the world if you can't use them (I'd never heard of them til after A-levels...)

    Also, not sure if it differs from board to board but S1 I found to be easier than C2 by some way.
