Dear candidates,

Please note that the correct answer to Question 8 from Assignment 12 (10% norm states that the sample size has to be increased 10% for each confounder added) is a. True

The answer was wrongly marked as 'b. False' due to an 'entry error' in the system.

So, we will assign 1 mark to all of those who submitted assignment 12. However, this mark will not be shown when you click 'progress tab'. We assure that these mark will be added to the final score for calculation.
