Re: Scanned copy of 2012 paper

Strange enough, those multiple choice questions look very similiar to ones i have seen in trials

Q10 is a good question, about the integral properties of odd and even functions

Re: Scanned copy of 2012 paper

A good paper I think, should do a reasonable job of distinguishing students fairly.

And some parts of Q15/16 take a bit of care to prove properly. I have a feeling some people might overestimate their marks in these sections.

I felt this exam was one of the most difficult that I have seen over the past few years.

Yep ...it was pretty difficult. -.-
The new form is horrible compared to the other... I just felt everything was all over the place rather than structured

Hardest test ever. At least since 2001. I wouldn't blame the bos if it had dr. frankenstein as the exam writer... it was all messed up. Hoping for 57%
