Much easier than I thought. Did anyone get 480 for the last question?
i got 486 but i didn't consider that each colour has to be used at least once :/// does that affect the number of ways??

I found it much harder than previous years, both my teachers agreed too and said that band 6 cutoff would be much lower this year so if anyone feels bad about how they went, dont be!

I do not intend to create any deliberate offence, but could those who say that this paper was harder than previous years please elaborate specifically which part of the paper they found hard?
My students and their teachers seem to agree that the paper still followed the trend of getting easier each year - although they are mostly very high achieving students so perhaps this is a biased perspective.

And I can't really pinpoint which part of the paper would've caused trouble for a typical band 6 student

All these ppl saying what they got for the last Q and hoping for 90+ raw mark...im sitting here knowing i got 2/15 for last question and hoping for a 70+ raw mark hahaha :(
Hoping the e4 cutoff is in the high 60s (I highly doubt it tho). Lost a few marks in the earlier Qs like 13 and 14. Oh well, i reckon il get a high e3 :p

Do internal marks matter in calculating your final hsc mark? I hope so because I don’t think I did as well as I could’ve in this exam.

If so, how?

That was a really bad exam for me. Probably gonna get like 55-57 raw if I didn't make really bad silly mistakes. Will this get me 80 hsc?

Paper looked alright to me. Pretty uninspiring Q16 as per usual from the past few years
