Probably ~92 raw. I lost some in silly errors. Still will be happy with anything about 90 raw!

It is wasn't hard.

The papers just easier every year. Fire the people that make these joke maths papers.


If I was doing the HSC this year, I could have finished that paper in less than 30 minutes.

everyone's saying the exam was easy....so raw marks won't be scaled high? (as everyone did well?)

REMEMBER... THIS is BOREDOFSTUDIES.. where there is... quite a sum of smart people..so dont.. be so afraid. I assume an 80 would be like good for the average people

because they reduced it from 120 to 100 marks, it is easier in a way.
although some of the last questions of the previous questions were EXTREMELY straightforward, while this one was not.
this does not determine the people who do extension and who don't, it's only about how lucky you are.
l would've taken the 2011 paper over this any day
but what surprises me is that they've put in circles for 3 past papers in a row. they are so unpredictable.

now there will be a huge percentage of people in the 75-90 range and a miniscule percentage at the 90-100 range

wth srs? one of the easiest papers. i thought the conversion of 120 to 100 marks would mean that some of the 3 marks would go to 2 and some of the 2 marks would go to 1. but it didnt

they just made it way easier for us by introducing multiple choice.

i dont get whats so hard about 16. its just some basic applications of algebra and then anothr application of the delta value and your done!

easiest shit i've done in my life. this aint nothing compared to last years or a couple years ago.
