You need not to revise your secondary or senior secondary maths book. But yes it is a lot about your research curiosity. We fear statistics when we see ample equations and believe it to be an algebraic expressions. It’s true that this is algebra but we need not learn those mathematical formulae when we wanna explore statistics.

You need to think scientifically and logically in your approach. Statisticians design survey, analyse and interpret data, discover trends, explore movements and variations and so on.
4. Statistical software will do the work for you.
It may include mathematical measurements but this is only a small area for one to cover. Today statistical software have made it easy to by pass those mathematical calculations making our jobs more convenient.
So if you really wanna be a statistician you need not fear your maths quotient. Just focus on your research curiosity and you will get through easily.
