    That doesn't mean that it's impossible to get that mark - it simply means that such a mark would have placed you in the bottom 25% of the state in 2001. It says 'mark too low' because there aren't any statistics relating to that percentile range, and thus any attempt at scaling would be horribly inaccurate.

    you wouldn't have come last in our grade last year.

    Our school had the top 4U student in the state, so our teachers tried to make really tough Q's in there, but they were still nothing to him.
    The answer is '3'.

    my class, which is just me, no one else, are half way through mechanics with only harder 3 unit topics to go, will we get finished b4 week 5?

    does anyone know why integration and conics is so easy for me yet i still haven't got anything in complex numbers and polynomials which we did first?

    and i'd just like to announce that i am going to come TOP of my class this year!

    and i'd also like to announce that u all have to forget that i am the only one in my class!

    ahh, I understand now (about the minimum mark stuff)

    and well, tompryor wouldnt need to worry about his assessments, since he's gonna come 1st anyway, so all that matter is his HSC exam mark
    theres pressure!

    How hard is it really to get top positions in the state for 4 unit maths, my tutor was like some kinda maths olympian in his high school days and claims that he was better than most teachers in the state from the best schools like syd grammar and hurlstone and he told me he was dissapointed big time after only coming 10th in the state for 4 unit in the hsc.So that guy who topped the state from barker must have been quite amazing because my tutor also claims he was even sharper in his high school days than he is now, its been like a decade, which is very scary indeed

    BIG-WILLY: Take it easy mate! Not every comment is necessarily a sarcastic one- I surely didn't intend to be sarcastic; my comment was 100% genuine.

    No offence but don't look *too* deeply into the posts, 'cause a lot of times, what one writes and actually is saying can be interpreted in a totally different slant by another, as eviidenced here. My general rule is that most ppl are genuinely here to help others and/or are grateful to those who do. (<--- no sarcasm here ok?)




    Anyway, the guy topping 4u at my school is an Australian Maths Olympian and is 'apparently' the best Australian mathematician under-21 (don't quote me on it though...).
    If he doesn't top the 4u paper this year, a lot of people will be suprised...and like fatmuscle said, they make our 4u papers hard to challenge even him (well he never gets 100% in the papers), so as you can imagine my upcoming 4u trial is no doubt gonna be a bitch

    Morgues...yeh I realised my initial reply was out of context so I edited it. The first part was meant for BIG-WILLY only.

    anyways; its BIG-WILLY your addressing, not me.
    From what i've heard, our school hasnt finished (i dont know what minai is on about), and that the students are teaching each other how to do certain chapters (its their assesment: to teach a chapter)
    I give this 9 thumbs up!

    Somewhere I must've read that 4-unit papers are always written by crusty uni professors who take sadistic joy in writing undoable papers.

    Not sure if that EXACTLY is true, because the Ext 2 paper last year looks pretty breezy compared to, say, 1995, but...

    I still worry...

    But, if you do that work, the marks for this one unit will also outweigh the marks for all your other units put together. :P




    Well, not literally, but it'll all be worth it. =P
