If you'd told me 3 weeks ago that I'd be voluntarily learning statistics and even enjoying it, I wouldn't have believe you. I blame

**emperor**. I think I owe

**leonato** an apology for being horrible about his subject. Unlike when I did (small amounts of) statistics in GCSE Maths, I have data I am interested in analysing and therefore stats has a point! I'm still not convinced it's Maths though and think that maybe it would be better taught in a subject other than Maths, like Geography when you're doing a project involving data (which is why I picked geography as our coursework involved data!). But I suppose the problem with that is that not everyone in a geography class will necessarily have the same amount of maths.*

**( Query behind the cut )***With us Maths was setted from year 9, but for years 8 and 9 Geography was banded with History and Science,** so that there were three supposedly equal upper classes (a,b,c) and two supposedly equal lower classes(d,e). Thus it is likely that people from the top maths set where spread out over the groups a-c. At GCSE, I don't know about those who only took geography, I guess they were set, but 9 of us did both history and geography and so were the one geography set in the free option time so couldn't be setted!
