Ok, that seems reasonable. What's confused me is the variability in trial difficulty because there are some that, I'm ngl, are really easy and I finish in 2 and a bit hours, and serve as ego inflators, while there are others that I can't even finish on time like the James Ruse ones. Also, is it just me, or do HSC questions just hit different to trial questions? I feel HSC questions are way cleaner and more intuitive, even compared to reputable school's trials like the SBHS and SGHS or even their northern counterparts. I think Baulkham hills is closest to reflecting HSC, except for maybe a few qs.MX1 exam is 2 h, MX2 is 3 h, so you only need to get done in those times, though some time for checking is nice. If you can really complete an MX2 paper in around 2 h, that's impressive.
