    possibly anywhere between 68 and 74 based off the large majority of people finding the exam very difficult but who knows there could be a lot of quiet kids that may have found it easy

    Hey @Carrotsticks, because it was a 'find' question for Q16bii), I chucked one of these ones to find the ratio lmao

    Surely they wouldn't penalise this?! The co-ordinate axes could quite easily be generalised via a linear transformation.

    This is actually the best way of doing these. Regarding penalty, I actually cannot say for sure, but I am reasonably confident it will be okay. Amongst endless non-attempts, they see someone have a different solution. It will get given a lot of attention for sure, and hopefully those people know the maths behind it. I think it'll be accepted.

    @other people reading this, in general any system that's been tilted you can 'untilt' and work the ratio from here. For more reading look up "Affine Transformation". Heaps of past HSC questions on things like this.

    2 things,

    Looking for a copy of the paper, is there anything anywhere?

    With the rotation of the conic point thingo, i made it into a complex number and multiplied by i then converted it back. It got me the answer so I hope I'm not wrong.

    cheers bruv!

    tbh I used to do stuff like this all the time in my HSC before I knew what affine transformations were. At SB the teachers were pretty chill about hack solutions, but I was often quite suspect if they were like that as markers. It was mostly out of sheer laziness, I'd just look at a length and be like 'Nah fk you imma let you be one unit' (3d trig <3). Or look at a point and go 'nah I don't like where you are, gtfover here'.

    I was super psyched when I saw you put this idea to use in your 4U 2013 BOSTES transformation in Q16b)-d), but ofc you made em prove it lmao.

    Real talk; really disappointed that the difficulty of HSC papers (even this years one) have gone done drastically over the years :'(

    This 4u paper was a meme

    This is coming from someone who skipped anything that looked like mechanics, conics or any other question that required heaps of thought.
    But I reckon there were a lot of easy marks in there. I haven't done past papers so I don't know if it's common, but yeah without studying I reckon you could get a solid 40 or 50 (not sure if this is usually the case)
    But yeah, the hard stuff was REALLY hard

    maybe around a 64 if you're lucky. keep in mind in 2013 a 63 went to an 89 and people are comparing the difficulty of that paper to ours

    When I did the 2013 paper I thought it had the easiest last question I've ever done in a 4 unit exam. Honestly I had a lot more problems with Q15 than Q16. Was 2013 really that hard?

    Fingers crossed it was, because I felt that ours was honestly harder than 2013.
    If it was, aligning will be good

    i didn't do the 2013 paper so i can't really answer. i had just only looked at the aligning on rawmarks.info. i'm just hoping the aligning is similar to, if not better than 2013 because that's the only way ill get a 97 hsc mark

    2013 graduate, can confirm I lost way more marks in Q15 than 16.

    But like, with all seriousness, what would you guys have done to better prepare for the last questions ? WHat would you have changed to cater for these questions?

    My 4u is in 2020
    I have tried the paper, did the questions i could do. The last question got up to ii and gave up lol
    will probs try it again tday

    exposure to all of elementary mathematics will help but there are only so many hours in a human lifetime.
    If I am a conic section, then my e = ∞

    Just so we don't have this discussion in the future, my definition of the natural numbers includes 0.
