Pre-Exam 2013 Statistics

22 March 2013: the results are  in on

Some figures:
- Participants:  643 (99.7%)
- Passes:        641
- Fails:               2
- Average:         81 marks
- Median:          82 marks
No participant scored full marks.

Here's how the marks are distributed:

How does this compare to last year's result:
- Participants:  390
- Passes:        386 (98.7%)
- Fails:               5
- Average:         84 marks
- Median:          87 marks
Four participants made not error at all.

Some conclusions: quite a few more participants, marks are marginally down, but the extremely high pass rate is even higher. It looks like an exam you cannot fail.

Any comments?
