Hard, challenging, when I saw it I was shocked, but once I got that feeling, i progressed through. Hoping for a mark of 75+ Finished the paper in 2 hours and 15 minutes

overall thought it was mostly easy, there was a few thing my teacher hadn't even covered, but i was pretty fine

the only one i know for sure that i lost marks on was the casted shadows one. Was it just a matter of trig, or were the triangles similar?
because i had a feeling it was so simple but i just couldn't figure out what trig to do, and i thought that if the triangles were 'similar' that they had to specify that.

i was probably just an idiot anyway

oh god the shadow question was confusing, did not know what to do there, I did similar triangles but I was just guessing, goodbye three marks

It seemed very easy, compared to past papers and my trial. Only thing I fucked was the vanishing point thing.

It was ok, was actually easier than past papers :) I just hope I don't make silly mistakes in section II cos I know I have to fix a lot of multiple choices as I was rechecking my answers in the end

Just checked the syllabus. Under one point, it says "sketching 3D solids using isometric paper and vanishing points". Has anyone actually done this in *general maths* class and not in an arts class?
