    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    Sorry Lauren, I found it reall really easy. Sure to get at least 95%. I finished it with 30 minutes to spare.

    Joking.
    I found it really straightforward but time was at it again. The projectile questions and q7 were hard and took a lot ok time so I had to skip questions.

    q1-5 were o.k

    It was hard. I felt like crap at the end of the exam, but seem to have done better after looking over what I attempted.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    i thought it was horrible as well. i am going to do so shit in it. i thought that the first few questions had more difficult content then the last few years. It is over now. no point stressing over it. Only one more to go. Ive got a 9 day wait though. ARGH.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    lol.. i didn't find it too hard. :S

    sure some questions were crap [like q6 n 7]
    but overall it was a nice paper. im expecting 80%+ raw i hope. lol
    seeing as i did most of the questions.. ^.^

    i probably would have been better off with more study. lol [[ the exam, i rekkon, was easier than last years]]

    well tht's my opinion~~

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    i found it shocking... shocking... i didn't answer any of question 6 but questions 1-5 i did ok in, question 7 was shocking too... overall aiming for around about 50% raw.. what do you think that'll scale to given the difficulty of this exam?

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    Very hard. I think I'll lose about 10-12 marks which sucks because I aws hoping for > 80/84. Lame... needed 20 more mins! damn those people that "need" special provisions...get 20 mins more...

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    sooo horrible...

    1-4 were ok.. 5 was harder.. 6 and 7 = death. 6 was worse than 7 in my opinion.. i actually got some of 7 out but barely any of 6.

    the only way i can pass is if i get a generous marker who gives me some marks for my rambling.

    Later, HSC.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    I thought it was quite tricky.

    Q4(ii), did anybody else get -a2 ? The way they worded the question I was expecting to be able to find a number, not in terms of a.
    edit: dam, just realised that it should be 0.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    i walked into the exam room with confidence that i'll do well, and all went well until i reached question 6 -.-". i managed most of question 7 .. and some questions were difficult, like the projectile, induction. i walked out feeling crap, and i wasn't the only one .. everyone found it difficult, alot harder than last years paper.

    @sober, i got 0 for that part =s .. i probably got it wrong then =[

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    while i was in the exam i was thinking wow i am going to ace this... but then i hit question 6 and it took a little longer than expected and then i pretty much ran out of time and only did about a quarter of the last two questions. so i'm kind of annoyed you see as i also left out a few things earlier on that i could have managed. so maybe i'll get like 70% raw. hope bos thinks its hard and they allign the marks much higher. do you reckon i'm pushing it to hope for band E4? probably i am, i probably get E3 i dont know.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    I thought it was ok, but time surely got the better of me. I thought there was heaps of working out needed for the proofs. Oh well, no more maths for this year!!!

    Good luck for all the rest of your exams.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    I managed to do about 50% of the paper, which is good for me. In trials I got 30% of the paper correct. I really liked Question 7 but didnt get the chance to finish it due to time. Should have done it earlier.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    Much fucking harder than anticipated. I haven't sworn that fucking much over a test for my entire fucking life (over question 5 [starting from induction]-7). The induction question wasted soo much of my time. So labourious. >:\

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    Well that was easily the worst exam ever!! OK I partly retract that statement, some of it was pretty straightforward (haha I LOVED 1 (i), cos it was on the integrals sheet!), but those last few parts were nearly impossible!! There goes my image as an intelligent young woman :P lol

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    i was cruising through the 1st 3 questions thinking wow this is good
    then q 4-5 were ok and q6 was a bsolutely discraceful i had no idea. i thought q7 was easier than q6 but was still really hard.
    then i just realised that i completely missed the probability in q6! i didnt even c it damn! oh well. i think i did pretty well minus pretty much all of q6 and most of q7. time always gets me too. the end was really rushed. if i had more time i probly would have seen the probability
    oh well
    no more maths!!!!
    it was soooo much easier than ext 2 which i failed lol

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    I answered enough to pass...the most I can get is a raw 57% (i gave up toward the end so i decided to count how many marks I lost)...hoping for massive massive scaling, hopefully to 70 to keep up with my school mark...

    i disagree, that was just as hard as in ext 2, especially cause i always run out of time aand this was loooong. i think i answered about 70% of that test being gererous but my mark would be lucky to be over 60%. skipped the induction question and only did about 1 or 2 marks from q6 an about 4 or 5 marks from 7. i think this was harder than any of the past papers ive done so yeah.
