Currently in the year 11 class but im guessing its stuff like volume and algebra. If your not too sure and have a scope for the year I would say just look at topics a term ahead. The yr 10 class should be doing polynomials rn according to my friend in the class.

So far in year 10 I believe they have covered stuff like volume quadratics coordinate geo and maybe logarithms. My friend is in the 10B class which I would say is decently paced. During the test Jimmy will also look at how fast u do to place you into a class. I would say just brush up on algebra and quadratics then u should be fine.

From what I know there are usually some ruse, baulko nsb and occasionally really good hurlstone/sefton. Although I wouldn't base my preconception on what school they attend cause I know one canley vale in that class rn.

is jimmy the best teacher there? i heard a lot of good things about him based off reviews
Im pretty sure hes the only good teacher there lol all the others are just uni students but never had them so idk. Jimmy is really good at explaining maths concepts but sometimes class can get pretty fast paced so just be prepared for that.

Currently I am in the 11B class and I believe there are 3 different classes (A,B,C). Jimmy takes all classes above standard math.

alright thanks a lot for the help. hopefully i can get into A class :))
Im pretty sure the main difference between the A class and B class is the pace of the lesson so it shouldn't be too bad if you get into the B class. The A class does get to cover hard questions however due to the speed of the class.

also curious why is the A class only 1hr 30min whereas B and C is 2hrs? Is it because B and C class are at a slower pace thus needing more time to cover all the content?
