    AQA A Level Maths Discussion Thread - 2018 Edition

    Hey guys, I thought I'd make this niiiiiice and early so we can all share how we're preparing for our Maths exams this year?

    Statistics 1
    Date: Wednesday 6th June 2018
    Time: Morning
    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
    Days to go?: 30

    Probably the most important way to prepare for maths is to do plenty of past papers! You can find the more recent papers here and the older ones here.

    Also, Physics & Maths Tutor has some good resources for revision - everything from revision notes to questions on specific topics. You can find the Statistics 1 materials here.

    Good luck with the preparations everyone, let the countdown commence! :afraid:

    There’s a question on mean and variance which is in mm and it asks you to convert them to inches given that 25.4mm = 1 inch. On the mark scheme they did 25.4mm/variance^2. I don’t understand why you have to square the variance

    I think the questions with good marks like 3-5 markers are doable and straightforward. It’s the little 1-2 markers that really piss u off

    How? Are you self teaching it?

    I would have thought people from 2017 onwards would have been entered for the new spec 🤔.

    Are you doing everything this year?
