will the brilliance continue?

Posted on July 12, 2006. Filed under: School, Stats |

After feeling so very brilliant upon getting word of my good grade in stats, I hope my brilliance has continued through to the first test that we had tonight.

I was so proud of myself for definitely nailing the correlation co-efficient because the formula is damn hard — AND I had forgot to add it to my crib sheet, but realized JUST before going to class. I raced to the library and downloaded the course notes just in time to jot down the necessary characters in an order. I was also proud because I hadn’t actually done any of the question types in practice before, just in theory and in lectures. There were 2 that could go either way…unfortunately 1 of those was worth 24 marks — though I feel that there were more than 100 marks to get, so this could work out in my favour. The other question that I left to the end was on probability and I managed to get answers for all of the parts. Whether or not they were the correct answers remains to be seen.

I still can’t (and couldn’t right after the exam) remember what all 7 questions were — there was one on data types, one on frequency distribution, one on central tendency, one on probability, one on weighted data, one on the correlation coefficient…and one more. I can’t for the life of me remember that last one — so I hope I answered it.

All in all, I’m pretty proud of myself and should wind up with at least a 70%. Half way through the semester now and my new life goal of being in the world of stats. Haha.
