For 3U you definitely need full marks (correct if wrong) but 4u...1 or 2 off?? Maybe idk - depends on cohort.

nah but he would of have to been a math genius at minimum. The 4u HSC is not designed to be able to get
100% easily.

nah he probably just studied all day and night

IQ doesn't mean too much
IQ matters alot for 4U math, I could grab the most eager kids ever, make them study 24/7 legit, and they would probably only get about 80+
Whoever got 100 must of been a real, real genius

This. There are some questions that are so abstract that no amount of studying will prepare you for

You know him math man, it was Anthony Henderson.
Is he the USyd guy?
To get first in course in 3U, you'd have to probably get 100% in 3U and close to 100% in 2U or very high in 4U.

To get first in 4U, you'd probably need around ~117/120 and you might need to do well in 3U as well to avoid losing your top place from ties.

If he's a "Dr." in maths, he must be a genius :p

How does 4U relate to 3U? why you need to also do well in 3U to get first place in 4U?
