**completed** this course, spending **3 hours** a week on it and found the course difficulty to be **medium**.

This is the first course related to Maths that I took so I am not really making a comparison. The course introduces me to a more complicated use of probability (beyond what I've been taught, i.e. high school maths). Generally, the professor explains the concepts really well. It is not difficult to follow his instructions and understand his explanations. The fact that the professor demonstrates the real world applications of probability (there are many case studies) helps me appreciate the concepts that have been taught. And the final exercise at the end of each week (where I have to look at the data given and calculate the probability or some related concept) is also really helpful. However, sometimes, the professor doesn't spend enough time on certain concepts (in my case, Standard normal distribution) which makes it challenging to follow his instructions. And the in-video quizzes are predictable (because the right answer is usually at the same position in the multiple choice quiz). A

And the in-video quizzes are predictable (because the right answer is usually at the same position in the multiple choice quiz). And I think it would really help me learn if there are more exercises for me to try out (and explanations if I get stuck: when I usually get the wrong answer, I either have to check whether my calculations are wrong or review the lecture videos again, which doesn't always help). Overall, it's a good course that covers various areas of probability. As an A-level student, I can say this course really helps me get ahead in my studies
