Not sure if you guys have seen this before but here is a test that you can use to decide whether or not you are suited to enrolling in Advanced Level Maths at the University of Sydney.

Student Self Test

It's probably best to take the test after you have completed Integration and Conics from Extension 2. (Out of the 15 multiple choice questions, there are many on integration and just the one on Conics. Some other topics are also covered but they are all Year 11 or earlier).

You get a score at the end and a recommendation as to your suitability for studying Advanced Level Maths at Sydney Uni.

Try it!

(You don't need to enter your name or student ID to complete the test.)

It is so not accurate. It's just a guide. I was on "borderline advanced" according to that quiz lol. Didn't stop me from getting Ds/HDs in advanced math units...

Were you unsure about any? I was so sure about my answers and got 13..wth
nvm not that bad...
no idea how to do 12, or 13;
6 might be a bit tricky since the solution has to be positve for it to be real solutions, so u take the positive of quadratic, for 9 u might have been tricked if u were rushed(maybe not)

I got 8. I'm not suitable for Advanced maths, but I'm in Year 11 and don't know integration.

Question 12 was pretty cool:

h(x) = f(g(x))

h'(x) = f'(g(x)).g'(x) Using chain rule. Then it all falls out.

Question 13:

Guessed it correctly.. lol xD

"You scored 5/15.

Not such a good score! Your chance of being successful in advanced mathematics units is probably only about 50%. On the other hand, many students with a score such as this will be successful. We strongly recommend that you see the Mathematics First Year office (Carslaw room 521) for advice if you wish to enrol in advanced units."

i think that's pretty good for skimming over the questions and taking a stab in the dark haha.
