I just noticed. I have no idea how I got an 8. I only had a little over a month to study for this exam and when I was done, i had thought of so many things that could have been done different.

Didn't binarize, my PCP (or whatever that method of looking at orthogonal variance was called) came out in error, my interpretation wasn't fully spot on due to not creating a sample set and idk what else.

What I think really did it was how well I wrote for each problem and explained what I could. That may be what is more important for this exam, how well you can convey what you did and what your thought process was. That's the only possible way I can think I managed to get an 8. That or my grader was drunk lol

Collecting 7’s. I’ve gotten 4 of those thus far. Seems to be my lucky number. I’ll certainly take it... Always studying 10% harder than necessary but never more than 20%.
