I don't even think you would lose any marks. Unless I am mistaken, even in the course it's not clear if A must be zero or not. If NESA can't decide then surely they won't dock you down for that.Hey Carrotsticks, you reckon I would lose 1/2 marks if I got a = 1 and 1/3, but I didn't have the plus minus?
Woah do you go like james ruse?Most of my cohort thought it was easy actually (my cohort is around 119 students). Essentially everyone I know who knows what they're doing thinks they got 90+ raw, and most of the top students (by top I mean top 40 lol) have lost maximum 5 marks so far.
Nah you'll probably only lose one mark overall.That was impressively quick! Gonna ask my own question with a careless blunder (technically 2) I made: ellipse/hyperbola 15c.
- part i: pretty sure I did c^2 - a^2 instead of a^c - c^2 - my bad for not checking the proof in the question
- part ii: swapped + and - for hyperbola and ellipse eccentricities, so I did a^2 - b^2 and c^2 + d^2, which countered the mistake I made in part i allowing me to prove it.
Are these two mistakes worth -1 each? If so, unfortunate... they are technically 2 separate errors.
There is a different marker for each question/section.https://scontent-syd2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t34.0-12/22782160_1342493485877993_986296358_n.png?oh=eaea7b71e683d45c848190d6160eb803&oe=59F06E15
Is this a new thing from NESA? That'll cost so much to pay the markers I thought they mark maths once?
