    - as long as they can see the graphs when they scan it but im not too sure
    - i dont think the tan inverse form would be accepted but get a second opinion just in case
    - i thought (ii) was trickier than (i)

    im guessing an 80 may scale to anywhere between 93 and 96 but this could be wrong

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    Word got around also the Mathematics Advance Paper was hard also. I reckon the Government are raising the standards of High School education. Ever since Australia has been ranked quite poorly in the educational standards against other countries, I reckon the word is to raise the standard so children have to study more and not be in the mindset that minimal amount of study is going to see them through. Don't be surprised if the Mathematics Ext 1 paper is also difficult come this Tuesday.

    Re: MX2 Exam Thoughts

    Thing is I write pretty light, it doesn't really matter whether you use HB or 2B, it's how hard you press that matters, u can easily make a HB darker than 2B even just by pressing a little bit more. But in all honesty I think I should be fine, because even if they see a super fine line and can't really make of it, I'm sure they'll just report it and ask for the paper to be seen on a hardcopy. I mean all papers get double marked so pretty sure a teacher can't just troll and give u 0? What do you guys reckon?
