I think lets say back to 2001. Although the syllabus hasn't changed really since 1989. (A minor update in like 2012 or something).
2014 HSC
2015 Gap Year
2016-2018 UOW Bachelor of Maths/Maths Advanced.

Dan will be back 14/10/17
Lets discuss the recent ones in this century
But it is open for discussion for any year your like

2001 2U very last question - I was told the committee got fired for putting in that question..
2003 Ext 1 very last question.
Very last question of 2000 2U was pree hard
I'd heard about that specific question multiple times before actually doing the exam as well, so that goes to show
(I got it though )

It usually the last few questions. In terms of topics, not sure which 2U topic is the hardest, in 3U it's Perms and combs, probability and simple harmonic motion (I think) and in 4U, it's harder 3U and I think mechanics (you got an advantage in this if you do physics)
what topic generally has the hardest qu. in 3u? I don't really see any of them as contenders.

Q14(b). Go do it.
But yeah 2003 MX1 last question.. that was a horrible projectiles question to do

In the 1998 (I think?) 4U HSC there was a question to prove the AM-GM inequality which iirc only 4 people successfully answered according to the marker's notes. There was also a tricky proof for the irrationality of pi sometime in the early-mid '00s iirc

ohhh fck half the state doing 4u got stuck doing the last integration question in 2014 despite it being easy. it probs the fact that the last question was only 3 marks that confused everyone.
Lol i did that question whilst studying for my term 4 exam on binomial. I've done it but i can't remember how, only that it took me a while to do
That took me like 3 secs, just used reverse quotient rule.
Its only coz ive seen a similar question in...terry lee? Or was it a worksheet? I cant remember
How often did I use reverse quotient rule in my life...never until I started realising I needed to take my integration skills beyond that of the easy
Pretty sure most of the state wouldn't have considered reverse quotient rule either. Heck, even reverse product rule throws me off at times.
