agreed! but giving four lines to the ppmcc hyp test was absolutely criminal

They must have done it wrong because the 2 marker after that had way too may lines. They must have got them mixed surely

yh i think so too, seeing the 10 lines for the 1 marker didn't half me a fright though! i nearly started wracking my brains for what more they could want lol

after talking to my friends, i think there may have been a mistake for question 7? apparently it said in the question "cumulative probability distribution" but they gave us f(x) not F(x)? i treated it like a pdf and integrated to find the cdf, and went from there. i didn't even realise the question may have said "cumulative" until one person said he was convinced of it after the exam. anyone else spot this?
What did you guys get for poisson? All of the parts
what do you guys think grade boundaries will be for f maths?

It's hard to say at the moment, because we don't know how many A*s they are planning on handing out, but they will certainly be pretty low given how hard the core papers were. Core 1 was one of the more challenging ones Ive seen and core 2 was definitely much harder than all the past papers, but I think stats was about the same difficulty. My guess for the A* boundaries would be 55, 45-50 and 60 for core 1,2 and stats

Isn’t 60 very high? I thought it would be much lower cause they said it’ll be between 2019 and 2021 what do you think the A boundary will be?
Anyone remember how they did the question about the drivers? Taxi company I think

I guess it may be lower than 60, 55 probably makes more sense as that was the 2020 boundary for an A* and I'd say they were about on par in difficulty... normally the A boundary has been about 10 lower than the A*, so I'd guess 45,35-40,45

I can't remember what my answer was but I created new variables that calculated the money made based on their mileage. I also combined the variables for part b, maybe part a as well.
