  Welcome to Year 13 Statistics.
Statistics is a mathematical science pertaining to the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data. It is applicable to a wide variety of academic disciplines, from the physical and social sciences to the humanities; it is also used and misused for making informed decisions in all areas of business and government.'

Internal Standards
We will do at least one trial assessment which will be very similar to the actual assessment. If a student is close to a boundary they may be allowed one resubmission.

Reassessment
If a student does not achieve a standard they may wish to resit the exam (if a resit is available). Resits will take place after their final NCEA exams, that is at the end of the year. Students will need to give their name to a mathematics teacher, or the HOD, indicating which standards they wish to resit. As the course content needs to be taught again the students will need to attend several after school lessons to prepare them for the re-assessments.
 
External Exams will be sat in line with the NCEA schedule and policies.
