    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    Was a pretty hard exam (way way harder than 2017). Got all of the last polynomials question out (might lose 1 on the explanation), but screwed up the math induction =.= because i misread it oops. And also didn't do the triangle thing or the very last part of q15. Hoping for close to 90 raw. What would that scale to?

    Terry Lee usually does them very fast, but his website doesn't exist anymore for some reason. Anyone know why?
    Otherwise, I think the BOS admins do one, but this may take a day or two since they take extra care in providing proper solutions.

    I believe Q8 is B instead of D

    Also for the volumes Q in 13a they forgot to multiply the height by 2. Should be 2y not y

    N&S clearly just wanted to be the first to publish it, very unpolished set of solutions but it'll make do for now.

    also for 12a they went from x to x^2 incorrectly. There should be a plus in front of the y^4 not a minus.

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    Does anyone by any chance know how many marks were allocated to each part of each question in the paper?

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    How hard would people say this exam was relative to like previous years (2012,13 etc)? I found the past papers quite a lot easier but other people have said different things.

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    I thought the exam was a pain in the arse, and that's what I've been hearing from most of my students too. Fat treks that chewed up way too much time, but lacking any singular question in the end that was profound/reflective of the richness of the course content

    ugh. I expect it to be around high 60s-low 70s for the band 6 cutoff this year

    I found them easier (Except 2016 lmao, Q16 was not mine to achieve xD) so I would definitely say that this exam was harder. My friend and his tutoring friends have said it was way harder, also heard stories that "All the top Ruse kids lost at least 1-2 marks" not sure how legit that is but yeah, it definitely felt harder.

    For me though, the difficulty purely stems from Q16, because Conics is my favourite topic so I was very happy to have it in Q14 and Q15 - That being said, I didn't get the probability or the whooole inequalities but everything else flowed out nicely in those qs.

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    After looking over the paper and solutions, I'm looking at a range between 65-75 (depending on silly mistakes and marking criteria, etc.)

    Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what these would align to...?

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    Have a few concerns.

    - Did 2 graphs in HB pencil
    - for arg(w/v) I wrote in tan inverse form and left it at that?
    - also anyone get part i of last question of 16 (the poly one) and then not part ii. Cause everyones saying part i was tricker than ii, so I need someone to relate to who got i but not the 3 marker (ii). xd

    after looking at solutions I should be able to get raw 80+ depending on whether I get marks for some of the 3 markers. (someone please enlighten me on what we reckon this is gonna align to
