lol I wish maths, I struggle with the last few questions.


Biology I'm probably furthest ahead in terms of content, maybe 90%? Tbh I don't think i'll be 100% with anything.

What I always say is:

"You can never be 100% with your content, there will always be something else that you don't know"

This applies to all subjects.

but if you know everything in the syllabus then you know 100% of the content. You can be 100% with the content but still not get 100% in the exam.
And I'm not saying im 100% ready for the 2u MATH exam, i'm just sayin im 100% with the content for 2u math, which is what the title of the post is asking.
Nothing wrong with it, good on you, shows you're confident and ready. I think people are saying not to be too over confident and stop study all together.

I know there was a 2u tip thread the other day, but can you and others who are confident tell me any things you've noticed helped with the last 3 questions? Or even just the last question of the math 2u exam? One tip was to just take as long as you needed to work it out before looking at answers... but sometimes I could sit there for 30 minutes not knowing what to do lol.

You're obviously not state ranking material. OP is.

A tip is to consider all the information proved in the other parts carefully. Usually they like to interconnect all the parts. Also, even if you can't answer one part of the question e.g part a), that doesn't mean you can't answer part b) or c). Like for example, in max and minima questions, the first part is usually to show 'V or A or X etcc' = 'random bulshit'. Even if you dont get that you can still find the max or min value by differntioating and settin to zero and normal algebra from there. Also, if it says to find the length of 'PT' for example, and the the next question says to find the area of a shape and you need PT to do it, make up a value of PT (try to make the question harder just incase they say you made it too easy, so pick like 4 * sqrt(3) or somethin.)

The thing is i've never just sat there not knowing what to do. In every exam i always get stuck somewhere but i don't just look and go "What i do.". I always try something, just look at the question and TRY ANYTHING that pops into your head. When you are doing the question not under timed conditions, try more than 1 thing, try anything you can think. I remember one question involved triangles where one of the lengths was x, and is said to show x^2 = some bullshit, and I was like HOW am i meant to get x^2 here, wtf??. I tried using cosine rule but that didn't work, But then I constructed a line to make a right angled triangle, where i used pythagoras to get the x^2, and then did some random algebra to get the answer. Turned out i could have used the similar triangle ratios and would have gotten it in a minute. I didn't see that, but at least I tried something, and maybe you'll get lucky a few times (like i did in the question).
