Our Statistics qualification develops skills that you will use in other subjects such as Science and Geography, and reinforces techniques needed for Maths as well as supporting progression to A Level Maths. Real-life scenarios will capture your interest and give you an insight into the importance of statistics in the real world. In brief, the course looks at the collection of data, processing, representing and analysing data as well as probability.
The examination is split into two 90 minute papers that focus on the same content and skills. This gives students and teachers an opportunity after the first paper to reflect on the areas they need to work on in order to strengthen performance in the second paper. Each paper is worth 50% of the final grade.
