Last part of last question I used summation formulas and ran out of time. Overall felt quite confident but had no time to check stuff, and not certain if I got DoF right, but way better than other exams. Extra pure is gonna kill me though

Got 2 there too. What about spearman’s dof?
But also, good thing is the last question was so few marks. I hope I got the rest right, need marks to substitute how badly I have done before

U dont use degree of freedom for spearmans right? U use the spearman's table. I did 1 tailed, 5% level, n=8. Critical value 0.6429

I think I did 7 dof rip
But I think I looked at the wrong, right side, so I read 37 or what was it value, lol. Was h0 rejected?

My spearmans rank coefficient or whatever its called was 0.5something so less than crit value I think that meant H0 accepted cuz insignificant

So I got a wrong conclusion I think rip hopefully there will be FT marks

2 or 3 I suppose. And 1-3 for last question. If I got everything else right which I doubt that would still be good tbf. It was a nice exam apart from last question.
Finally an exam I didn't take a fat L on, hopefully this will carry my grade. Couldn't answer 7 though

Had no time to check my answers as I first time did PMCC for the question, tried to do summation formulae for last, and also wrote into wrong answer part again. Kees happening to me :/ probably could have gotten extra time had I applied for it but oh well, hopefully will still be an A
for last part of last question i did:
Var(X) = 50 x 1/12 x [(n-99)^2 - 1]
= 25/6 x [n^2 - 198n + 9800]
