Okay, I'm a pretty good 3u student, and I found the exam hard and long. Now, when I logged on here, and here everyone going "It was so easy!" I panicked, until I realised that half of them were 4unit ppl.

So how did you 3uniters go?

I personally left out....about 18 marks (AT LEAST) worth. So I reckon I lost about 25 marks. ish.

I think i went pretty good
I think i got all of q's 5 and 6, but i could only answer 4 marks of q7
Hoping for a mark above 60/84 i guess

People should not complain. Complain if you asked "how do you do question 1(a)?" and sat there for the whole exam. Someone did do that, im not naming names

ditto - it was a VERY long test. With most of the questions, i thought i knew how to solve them but just didnt find the time to finish a lot of it.

i reckon i skipped about the same amount of marks as you did. and i only got most of 7a because i did a question like that last night. looked at 7b once and never again..

It was bad. I reckon I got 40% max.
Question 7 SHM wasn't too bad.

A couple of really obscure wordings.

worst fucking exam of my life. I'm HOPING for over 40%, it was terrible, I hated the questions, nearly all of them were beyond stupid. EVERYTHING I hate about 3 unit was in here, everything I find easy they forgot to include.

that circle geometry q was just...myeh.

This is me in the exam, "nope, can't do that. or that. hm. can do that. no wait, i cant. hm. cant do that, what the hell is that?! and heh, not a chance (this was to q7b.)

then...15mins to go "craaappp 2 questions to go!"

that was my 3u exam experience in a nutshell

THat was very straight forward

YEs i must say the test was very straight forward, i believe i got 80-82. DAm q1a i made a stupid mistake, i hope the fact that the test was so simple wont scale me down.
