Statistic Coursework Gcse Edexcel Biology

 
  1. I'm in Year 10 and I'm going to start my statistics coursework next week which is very soon, however I honestly have no idea what we're doing. I understand already that our theme is holidays and we will be given a set of secondary data. But I do not know further than this. I am desperate to get an A* in my coursework and I need some help! We have gone over some of the basics (that are not A-A* grades) like qualitative, quantitative, continuous, discrete, data logging machines etc.

    I want to know what the structure is; how long I have to complete it; what we are actually writing; what key facts I need to know

    Thanks

  2. So I got an A in my statistics coursework last year( 31/40) and I was 2 marks of an A*. I don't actually know of anyone who has got an A* in the stats coursework- in real life and the student room- so it's very rare.( Statistically for AQA this year more people got an A* in maths than for statistics)

    For me the coursework lasted for the entirety for the school day and I got one day to do it- your school might be different. You should be giving sort of writing frame( I was)-
    Firstly are you on AQA? If not then I won't be able to help as much- but one huge tip is to read the examiners report- it tells you exactly what you need to include and where students have gone wrong- it will help you achieve the top grades.

    To actually get A* grades you have to use A/A* techniques and interpret them and how they are relevant to your given hypothesis. Use histograms, grouped frequency tables, standard deviation, mean, median, mode, intq, boxplots etc

  3. As the previous post stated, it depends on your exam board.
    Idk about edexcel but for AQA your teacher can help a little and you can take your revision guide and whatever you need with you.

Removal of OPTEMS

In order to help increase security, and also allow more time for centres to process and submit their centre assessed marks, from Summer 2017 we will only be allowing centres to submit those marks online; via Edexcel Online or Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

This will be in keeping with other Awarding Organisations, and will offer the following advantages:

  • you will be able to submit marks right up to the deadline
  • a reduction in the amount of paper being sent through the system, and stored in centres
  • it will eliminate the risk of OPTEMS being lost or damaged in the post
  • Edexcel Online will display the latest allocated moderator details, capturing any late changes

If your teaching staff usually complete their own OPTEMS forms, please see the guide below on how you can give senior teachers or Heads of Department the relevant access to Edexcel Online to complete their own electronic submissions.

The only exception to this change will be for Entry Level Certificate (Academic) which will continue to have marks submitted via OPTEMS, as these qualifications are not on Edexcel Online.
