our school did really shit also... highest was 72% and then there were so many people who got below 50% a few people even got 30% -- very poor..
i also was told that state average was 23%!
i personally thought that the level of difficulty expected by that exam was too hard for a GENERAL level of mathematics understanding.
I got 76, which i thought was a really bad mark, but i far and away topped my year. It WASNT a hard test. yes you had to manage your time very well, but thats always how its been. I think my school average was very low.
my school's average was somewhere in the 40's...nothing compared to the kind of marks we've been getting in assessments throughout the year (which have been A LOT higher). i didn't even pass...and those that did were told they did well. the highest was 71%, which i thought was a shocker at first, but i've realised that it seems to be a common "high" mark throughout some schools
if the state avergae is below 50%, then isn't that saying something???
i did heaps of past papers b4 the trial, and i can't say that any of them came close to being as difficult as this exam was....
For some reason we didn't do the catholic trial so our teachers put together some lame excuse for an exam that was just crazy. The whole thing was in gibberish. I got 75% and the highest was 90%, I came 5th
i got 86% which was the highest in our grade.
we had replacement questions for annuities and the hard investment chapter coz we hadnt done them yet. i still havent finished one of the chapters so im stressin at the moment.
Once upon a time there was a boy who was smart and then he discovered the art of drinking& sex and hes marks dropped from 80's to a fukn 35 in the trial by the way i left out a total of 31 marks because i ran out of time
we didnt do the catholic trial but i got 82% which was the highest mark in our grade by about 10%. the average was about40% but i was still dissappointed with my mark, coz i made so many SUPID mistakes as per usual
i am also interested in the catholic trial paper if anyone did it.
