    Superannuation and loan repayments in financial maths are the hardest in my opinion, they are usually tested at the end of 2u papers

    I also think superannuation/loan repayment is the hardest topic for 2U.

    Superannuation and loan repayments, in my opinion, is the most difficult topic in 2U.

    Probability

    Superannuation is the same every time

    Easiest would be co-ordinate geometry - free marks
    Hardest would be superannuation like everyone else is saying, probability is fairly easy. Just with superannuation, usually question's from memory are bombed with a lot of little details and linkages that you need to adress mathematically.

    Coordinate geometry is definitely not the easiest, nor is it free marks. There are enough tools in coordinate geometry to make a challenging question (compared to superannuation).

    Superannuation is the same thing with different numbers most of the time, I've only seen a handful of exceptions. It's always A1, A2, A3, ... etc in 2U. It's the most rote learn and limited topic in 2U, you can do most of them without thinking.

    There is no definite hardest topic. I've seen hard S&S questions, hard probability questions, and extremely hard geometry questions. And the difficulty of these is far higher than any financial or superannuation question I've seen.

    I agree, there isn't a "definite hardest topic" with any of the HSC math's - a hard question in an exam can be assessed from any topic. However relative to the scope of difficulty of 2U and the depth it can assess, co-ordinate geometry is a very shallow topic, where traditionally (looking at past HSC papers etc), there isn't much asked from it. (application of formulas, characteristics of shapes like triangles and parallelograms rhombi..) If you find superannuation easy then kudos to you! Personally it was one of my biggest struggles last year.
