How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is the Statistics examination from the MK Schooldays series of caches by MKGees.

The series is based very loosely around GCSE examinations.

The puzzle icon is shown at one of Milton Keynes' educational establishments, in this case Leon Sports College & School in Bletchley.

However, the cache is not at this location. Please do not attempt to park or search there. It is private land.

As with all of this series, we are available for mentoring and support by email on request.

GCSEs were introduced into secondary schools in England in 1986 to replace the previous GCE "O" Levels and CSEs. They are available in a bewildering array of different subjects in a number of distinct categories. Statistics sits in the Mathematics category.

Passing this examination will reveal Bonus Code A for MK Schooldays: Graduation Day.

Statistics Examination: Time Limit 10 Minutes, On Average

0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 3

3 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 7 7 7 8

Round all values down to the nearest integer.

The cache is at:

North (SD+Median)(Median-SD)o (Max-Median)(Max+Mode-Median).(Median)(Max)(Min)

West (Min)(Min)(Min)o (Mode)(SD).(Median x Median)(SD+Median+Mode)(Mode+SD)

The final cache is a 450ml clip lock box covered in black duck tape. It contains a small log book and pencil/pen. Please, as ever, take care to replace the cache as you found it.

As you will most likely solve this at home before venturing out, the final cache is placed where the calculated coordinates appear to be on GoogleMaps. This may be a few feet from where your GPS thinks it is.

We hope you enjoy your studies and that you get the grades you need.
