We can’t help with advice on coursework or exercises related to taught modules. Instead, you should contact the Maths and Stats Clinic.
Whilst we try to provide helpful advice, we are not able to provide formal statistical approval for research proposals or other forms.
Whilst we can offer advice on data analysis, we are not able to undertake the analysis itself.
Though we try to provide help with a range of computing applications/systems, we do not have expertise in every such application/system.
Stats Desk is not able to provide advice to people who are not members of the University of Kent.
