    It's very simple. It also didn't stick. I moved on to S2 and managed something similar but then came back to it a week or two later and had mostly forgotten everything :lol:

    I understand the statistics I have been taught (s1 and s2) and find some it very interesting, such as normal distribution and Hypothesis testing;they are however the lowest exam scores I have in maths apart from one decision module.

    I'm trying now and it's all just a mind ****. Like I see my notes and think, hmm this is easy, I go do an exercise question and I'm just dumbfounded as the answer requires some special ass trick that I could not see at all. Eh I only need 40% to pass as it's a uni module and I'm pretty sure I can do that.
