**Sick of doing standard repetitive questions and want some good practice for the harder questions in the HSC maths exams?**

Want to be challenged and tested on how well you

Know someone at school who is a gun at HSC maths?

Want to be challenged and tested on how well you

*really*know your stuff?Know someone at school who is a gun at HSC maths?

It is that time of year again where Bored of Studies will be holding trial exams for:

• Mathematics Extension 1

• Mathematics Extension 2

These are aimed at students seeking a challenging paper that will push their limits and test how well they

*really*know their stuff. The exams have been designed by our team maintaining a high standard of challenging questions and proofs whilst still remaining within the bounds of the HSC syllabus. They will interest you, challenge you and show you ways of thinking for certain topics that you may not have considered before (which will be very handy for the actual HSC exam!). Students who have taken these trial exams in previous years can attest to this.

Students will sit the examination under supervised exam conditions and will be allowed to keep their copy of the exam paper to bring home. A team of markers will then mark the responses and post the results on this forum in due course, along with the worked solutions.

**Note:**Students who may be worried about losing motivation (due to results) are reminded that this is

*NOT intended to be an accurate reflection of the difficulty of the HSC*. The questions are made to be as closely styled as possible to the HSC exams (see previous papers), but this will be your last chance to practice a full exam as close to HSC conditions as possible.

**Location**

**Date and times**

Thursday 10th of October

Mathematics Extension 2

9:30am - 12:35pm

Mathematics Extension 1

2:00pm - 4:05pm

**Target audience**

It is highly recommended that students attempting the paper are comfortably in the Band E4 range, aiming for 95+ in any of the Mathematics Extension courses. The exams will very thoroughly examine your understanding of different topics, but more importantly your ability to apply this to solving problems under exam conditions. It is also highly recommended that those attempting the Mathematics Extension 2 paper also attempt the Mathematics Extension 1 paper, which I guarantee will also be sufficiently challenging.

**What to bring**

The usual materials allowed for the HSC exam, including pen and calculator. Exam writing booklets will be provided on the day.

**Cost**

We kindly ask that you each donate just

**$5**to partially cover our printing costs. If you are doing both papers you only need to pay once. The rest comes out of our own pockets. Contrary to what you might hear, we are actually NOT paid to put the time and resources into designing the paper and marking your responses. It is purely out of our passion to offer you guys something unique and valuable for your studies.

**How to register**

If you wish to invite some friends (which I encourage provided they fit the recommended target audience described above), you may register on their behalf by providing their details as well.Please send me a private message (here or click on "Start a new conversation" on my profile) stating the following:

• Name

• School

• Which exam(s) you will be sitting (Ext1, Ext2)

*If you know anybody who is good at Mathematics or a 'beast' at it, I ask that you link them to this page. We want to put the best people in the state up against each other for this exam. Consider it a challenge from us.*If you do not have an account, I encourage you to make one.

Once you have registered, you will receive a

__student number__to confirm your registration. Keep this student number with you on the day of the exam. You can use it to track your results when I put the marks online (only the student number and marks will be shown).

*You are only registered when I have replied with your student number.*__Note we will cap registrations at 40 people for each exam, so get in quick!__

**Past exams and solutions**

Here are some past papers since 2012 to give you an idea of what to expect. Feel free to use them as preparation for this year's paper or just practice in general.
