    Should I do 4U maths?

    Do you think I should do 4U maths. My Ext 1 marks are as follows:

    Test 1: 93%
    Test 2 (Half yearly): 85%
    Test 3: 80%
    Test 4 (yearly): 93.5%

    Overall: 88%
    Rank #2

    So what do you think, and what are some important things to consider in the decision.
    Thanks

    Try consider if your problem solving skills are good cause 4u is way harder than 3u

    Yes you should definitely try doing 4u, in my own experience I have never come across a person achieving high 80s to 90s who has immensely struggled with 4u.

    Doesnt matter what u got in your past 3u exam, if your a type who just machine through questions without any thought or understanding then 4u will be a challenge. 4u comes down to your logic and not just accepting things the way they are. That being said give it a shot

    Also 4u needs a lot more problem solving than 2u and 3u so can't really base your predicted 4u success off of those marks. If you think you can problem solve then take 4u
