    What colour is your stats book? It should be brown and have a person running or something similar on it. If it's not like that, then you're on the wrong thread.

    It was for the stats part of this exam here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5247054 People don't seem to find discussing both on that thread a problem though so probably best to stick with there!

    Ermm.... they're helpful but also not very. Quite a few answers in the back of the book are wrong, most of the questions are practically old-spec questions and not very problem-solving based, and honestly, it's good for learning content and I don't particularly like going through it again once I've finished doing the questions.
    I personally wouldn't recommend them but I understand that they may pretty much be the only resources that you'll have for the new spec. :dontknow:
    Sorry, a bit of a vague answer

    Yes, of course. That's 81% and Edexcel WANT around 80% to be an A but for GCSEs last year, they wanted 97% to be a 9 but it ended up being 79% or something like that so if the AS grades act similarly, the A boundary should be around 70+% ish. It could be lower or higher though :dontknow:
