Edexcel A-Level Further Mathematics - Further Statistics 1 - 16 October 2020Watch
Edexcel Further Mathematics Paper 3B/4B (Further Statistics 1)
Marks: 75 (a fourth of the total A-level)
Paper 3B/4B can cover anything on the Further Statistics 1 part of the specification.
If you want to use old spec resources, there is a content mapping document here. Be aware that the style is different and the old specification does not cover everything.
A summary of content mapping can be found below.
- Discrete random variables - S1
- Binomial - S2
- Poisson - S2
- Negative Binomial - S5*
- Geometric Distribution - S5*/AQA S4/OCR S1
- CLT - S3
- testing - S3
- Probability Generating Functions - S5*/OCR S4
- Quality of tests - S4
(there is nothing completely new in FS1)
*S5 is a very old module (back when there was 20) that was examined between 2002 and 2006. There aren't that many past papers available (I put other exam boards there for that reason) and probably quite hard to find - not sure whether I can link some sources here. (needless to say, one or two of the questions will look very familiar because they ended up being reused in the FS1 textbook!)
I've been working through the official Edexcel Further Stats 1 textbook and have already completed the Further Stats 1/2 exams with video solutions.
My youtube is AJMaths if anyone might need some help/revision!
