    Yeah. That Z-Chart sh*t was so bad. How were we supposed to find the percentage decrease in prices from a year that wasn't even on the graph? I guessed it was something to do with the top part of the z. Ugh

    What the what are dot plots? I spent about 15 minutes staring at the page until I figured it was just some weird looking pictogram.

    And yeah, last year's one was so easy.

    Did anyone get that question about multistage sampling? Like, seriously! It wasn't in any textbooks or exercise books. After the exam, we all went rushing to our teacher shouting and swearing about what in God's name is multistage sampling, and even she didn't know.

    Like, the grade boundaries are going to be so low for this. They can't put multistage sampling, z-charts, comparative pie charts, dot plots and a bunch of other sh*t in an exam that's already supposed to be hard and make high grade boundaries.

    This one was by far the hardest out of 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

    On the whole, I think that I'm going to get a rubbish grade. The worst part is that I asked my teacher and she said that we can't even resit it next year if we're not happy with our grade. Ugh!

    To be honest, at least our lot all went out to Pizza Hut afterwards!!

    Yeah, Christ. All of us were just having a go at the idiot who set these questions. If the grade boundaries are too high (e.g. more than 75/80 for A*), I really want a word with him/her.

    Hey!! The Multistage is pretty simple. It's using a sample such as a cluster and then further reducing it using stratified etc. We got told to expect that

    By dot plots I guess you're meaning the test score results how it was in 4 sections and it showed you the results? We didn't learn that but I figured it out I guess

    Z charts were erm.. unusual. I thought they'd make us finish the running total but nope.

    Comparative pie charts I was sooo happy with. I lit recapped it before going in. You basically had to use area = pie x radius squared and then find a scale factor and then find the cost of online sales.

    I took the higher, I'm not sure about you. But I'm stoked about the paper, I feel I did well. I wish you good luck!
