Multis and Q11-14 slightly harder than past years. Q15 and 16 were easier than recent years.
I'm guessing aligning will be worse than previous years?

I screwed up really bad... You reckon 45% raw will make it into the E3 range

I lost like 4 marks on Multiple Choice alone, Baited by Q6 and all 8~10 (according to current consensus). Only hope is that I didn't screw up anything else for an 80 raw.

I've known people to not get 100% in maffs exam due to writing 1+1 =3
Last year in my 3U exam, I read a question wrong. And in my 4U exam, not only did I also read a question wrong, I did 2 x 1 = 1...

I probably still hold the record for most stupid mistakes lol. In my 4U trial, I bubbled an answer different to the one I thought was correct (and was).

lol 2 marks for an induction question

I guess that's because the base case was basically given

According to some sources, 98 raw was attained by one of the lower state rankers last yr (somewhere between 8 to 10th). But they may not have been 1st internally. My suggestion is that 97+ would've been like a good cutoff in previous years, but this year probably higher (unless they mark ridiculously to distinguish all those 100s).

Actually yeah as fluff said, 99 raw with 1st internally seems like a decent cut off this year

Yep and n = k + 1 was pretty straight forward with just an application of the assumption n = k and part i

I think I can safely say that NESA has run out of good questions to ask
I completely agree!! Some questions were actually in my Revision and Assessment Tasks for my students.
However, only the results can speak for themselves. We just have to wait!
