"I decided to study Statistics because I enjoyed the statistics section of my Maths GCSE; I found it relevant to the real world and therefore more interesting. The course has been challenging but with the help of my tutor I have completed some interesting experiments and I can confidently apply many new statistical techniques, which I hope will prove valuable for my future career."
