I heard the guy who came top is really the person controlling Sharky behind the scenes...

WOW THAT IS SO COOL!!!WOoOoWwowowoww someone GOT 80????!?!?!?!
ok jokes aside, sup guys I'm "englishessayssuck" (mirroring my then-profound disdain for writing english essays like 3 years ago) and my student code for the bos trials was 3705 (so yeah I got the 80).
Anyway so yeah I personally found the Bos trials this year quite challenging compared to the one last year, which I finished on time apart from q11a (at home of course), so when I challenged my boi Sharky in getting 100 for the 2019 edition I was somewhat confident I could get rather close to that score (which turned out wasn't to be). I guess when I started the paper, q11 kinda already bombed out because q11a was written by none other than Sharky and Paradoxica (ended up not getting anything), and a combination of typos and my incompetence meant out of what should have been an easy 12 marks for q11, I only managed to convert 8 of them. However, apart from skipping a few 2-3 markers along the way throughout the rest of the exam which I felt would take too much time for the number of marks it was worth, the rest of the paper was somewhat manageable, if a little demanding on time.
For those people who are surprised about someone getting 80, I believe it's definitely possible for someone in the future to climb quite a bit higher into perhaps mid-85 range, and I don't expect the 80 record to stay for too long before someone eventually exceeds that score.
if you guys have any questions then you can post something below or send a message but I probably won't answer much because I'm a very irregular user of this website (and definitely don't mention about the test yesterday)
once again thanks to the people who made the BoS trials possible this year and I hope to possibly work with some of you in making an even harder 4u test next year.
bye
Is your iq over 150?WOoOoWwowowoww someone GOT 80????!?!?!?!

Working on it. Usually aim for few days before the HSC exam.When will we get our 3u results back?
Everyone who's got experience in oly maths can confirm international maths olympiad is much harder than 4u maths.WOW THAT IS SO COOL!!!
Is it true you were on the Australian olympiad team as well? What's harder, 4u or the international olympiad?
lol if olympiad was easier than 4u then almost everyone who could cope with 4u would be on the team. It's a different type of focus - olympiad is about problem solving using topics like number theory, whereas 4u is mindlessly hashing out calculus.WOW THAT IS SO COOL!!!
Is it true you were on the Australian olympiad team as well? What's harder, 4u or the international olympiad?
Wow were you on the Australian team too? Are all the people super maths geeks who do maths all the time?Everyone who's got experience in oly maths can confirm international maths olympiad is much harder than 4u maths.
4u maths - requires maybe a month or so to get good at
oly maths - years of training required, thousands of hours doing maths
no, not quite, but closeWow were you on the Australian team too? Are all the people super maths geeks who do maths all the time?
Come on Sharky...didn't the name give it away?no, not quite, but close
also, if i did maths all the time, i'd probably bomb out in my atar, so we'll see
HI,When will we get our 3u results back?
The number of times I have to drill that into my students... It pops up every few weeks, and no matter whether it's the 2u 3u or 4u class, it's always the same answers: x, or +-x.The square root of is not
Haha this guy broke all the bos trial records. Well done 3705, 67/70....and here is the latest version of Mathematics Extension 1 paper, solutions (now with colour in the graphs!) and results.
And that's wrap so thanks to everyone who helped and participated this year!
To the students, best of luck for the Mathematics Extension 1 HSC exam!
