    All Prelim topics can be assessed in the HSC exam. This year q6 in the 2U paper required an understanding of a locus and its definition:

    6 The point P moves so that it is always equidistant from two fixed points, A and B.
    What best describes the locus of P ?
    A. A point
    B. A circle
    C. A parabola
    D. A straight line

    Up to 30% of the HSC 2U exam can be made up of Preliminary content, so make sure you are solid with it

    Yup. It's pretty common as well actually I think.
