I fucked it up, stupid me starting from q8.... I got to q6 (from 8), realised i was taking too much time, so i went back to 1 and then ran out of time 1/2 way through 5... didn't even get to look at those projectiles... shit..

Tip for the '04ers: DO NOT START FROM Q8!!

Damn, i won't even get 90 for this....

this exam was the hardest in a long time (apart from 2000)
i was totally unprepared for the mechanics questions....
thought it'd be resisted/banked/conical... overlooked projectile (study today) and circular (2000 one)
stupid stupid me

yeah, i stuffed it as well, i barely didn't even have time to finish the paper as well...also i spent so much time on conics, and i ended up not gettin' the answer. >.<
yeah...the timing stuffed me up, and also everything i thought that wouldn't be in it was in it.

i reckon i got 62/120. :(
can someone tell me how much does that mark usually equate to ?

i didnt really study for it.. coz i knew i was repeating.. but ehh.. i thought it was pretty hard.. so did the rest of the group that did ext 2.
yeah i was also very nervous as well...this was to an extent that i kept forgetting to take new booklets for each question, and then i realised half way thru the second question, that i was writing on the same booklet. :eek:

yeah the last part of q1, i got 1/cos^2, then i was so dumb that i started to use the cos2x transformation, and then i didn't even get the answer at the end. :(

Yeh i screwed that one too, but i figure that if the second part follows from the first part correctly, they should give us marks for the 2nd?

I was gonna do that. then I thought: I hardly ever got any question 8 questions. so why bother doing it that way when I should get as much mark as possible from the easier part?

Anyway, I think the test was harder than the past papers that I've done. Intense study didn't help much either. I was disappointed that there were no conical mechanics. I really practiced hard on it. didn't study projectile much though :(

I think i drew a few graphs wrong too :( sadly
