i'm not resitting this exam - but what helped me pass was that i wrote down EVERYTHING on the specification for this unit in a book - methods and some examples - revised them and highlighted key facts ect, might not work for all but it got me an A* -- Hi Shannon! :P thought i'd find you here! hehe x

Hey Taya haha didn't think I'd find you here haha :) What i did was bought a CGP revision book, they're about £5 but I got mine cheaper from school, and I did a few pages a day, not too many, with breaks in between every 2 pages, and wrote all the key notes down from each page - limit yourself to the amount of notes you write or else you won't take it in. Then I answered the questions provided in the book on each page - it really helps!! OK, so I have to resit, but I was only 1 mark of an A*, my target level. Here is a link if you want to buy the book -

Hope I've helped :)

@Kelly:) , unit 1 is the exam taken first, on statistics and probability. The other two units are different exams and don't need to be revised until you've been taught the material in class. Hope this helps :)
