      Hi everyone, L1 June candidate here. Just starting out on some practice papers this week. As above, are these info provided in the exams (z tables), or am i expected to memorise some key values?

      They definitely don’t provide a full table.

      I think they provide a small limited table within the question if it is needed. If it’s standard values (i.e. 1%, 2.5%, 5%) I think you are expected to remember.

      Thanks jenova. Am I right to say that you meant we must remember the critical z-values for confidence levels of 68% (1.0), 90% (1.645), 95% (1.96) and 99% (2.58) for 2 tail hypothesis?

      I think 90, 95, 99, I don’t think 68 is needed to be memorized. The rest should be provided if needed.
