    3u cssa 2018?

    How'd everyone go?
    Thoughts on the exam?

    Personally thought the exam was fair, pretty much what I expected from CSSA really.
    Multiple choice was fairly standard, 11 and 12 were also fairly easy. Q13 was decent.
    Q14 was also decent, although I'm fairly sure I cooked the sum of series question

    Honestly, not really. Most of it was really quite standard to be honest. From what I've seen of CSSA it was probably on par or a little harder than average?
    There was nothing really overwhelmingly difficult, just 1 or 2 things I hadn't done enough of.
    Surprisingly the Projectile question was quite simple, and only worth 4 marks.

    Questions were pretty good in my opinion - but I ran out of time. I had to cut my losses and just try and get as many marks as I could from throughout the paper.

    Yeah for sure, I ran out of time on Q14. Got the projectile out but ran out on the sum question and think I probably wouldve lost a couple of marks for rushing through Q13 I think. With another 15 minutes I think I wouldve been very confident Haha

    Pretty happy tbh, got 58/70 (83%)
    Dropped a few dumb marks here and there, but overall not too bad.
    Thoughts on the difficulty compared to previous years, and where 58/70 on this puts me roughly?

    just curious but what rank is your school ? (i'm assuming its at least top 100 if 83% isn't the highest mark in your cohort)

    Yeah mine was the top of our class Haha. And no, I wish I went to a top 100 school Haha.
    My schools rank fluctuates between 250-300 normally :/
