Nope, didn't have time.
I hoped to never have to write "not attempted"

I have this problem with the whole testing thing. Fair enough that there are time limits, for the sake of the people who mind the exams...

But I don't get why we have to race against the clock to do maths problems, when they could quite easily allow you to pace yourself and think about them.

I could have done Q7 if I had 15-30 minutes more. But obviously the world would explode if we were allowed extra time.

i didnt attempt question 7 but didnt write not attemped instead i wrote "a)" and that was the only thing i wrote. Do you really have to write not attempted if you dont attempt it?

What are you gonna do sit there for a week? You gotta put a limit somewhere. They chose 2hours. Everyone is in the same boat.

Didn't have time to attempt question 7. It was more like a comprehension question. Too many words. :p

I wrote some B.S for Q7 part a i & ii (in words). I reakon its stupid to have to race against the clock. What is this, a test to see your knowlege or to see fast & reakless you can do an exam. I lost about (8 mrks-careless mistakes) and if i had 30 more mins i could have easily score more than 85%
