I found this test so hard... Went through a few of the past papers and they were a lot easier imo. This one had a bunch of questions I didn't answer, probably about 20 marks worth and the ones I did answer I wasn't sure about. Very hard test and all my friends but one found it the same

The exam structure was so different compared to the past ones, it really threw me off, and the multiple choice was so hard.

Well, I found it easier than the trial examination - the likes of which I bombed (38%, lol).
Still, I did skip several questions and found the exam difficult. It wasn't as difficult as I expected it to be, however.
I might even... pass? That would be a miracle.

I spent so much time on the simultaneous equation question. What did people get for that?

Fucking ridiculously hard, makes all the past papers I did look fucking easy. Aiming for a band 5 but I doubt I'll get it at this point, I lost about 15-20 marks on questions I couldnt do or made up.

Yeh I had problems with that question and the other algebra questions so I left them out. Also does anyone know the answer for the simpsons rule, why it is 114 degrees angle, and the question about the time difference, was it 140 mins?

Lel, thinking that I will get 70 raw in this shit, it was extremely difficult. Who else agrees; the mc questions were hard!

Yeh that was a weird one which I had no idea for. I put if you're hit by another car which is probably wrong, a lot of my mates were saying burglary/theft etc. I had no clue.



Overall, I thought the test was pretty hard and I missed out on at least 10 marks because I had no clue, expecting like a 70 raw.

What was the multiple choice with the 40% decrease in water than 25% decrease in water ? was it 25% of the 40% or 64% ? i guessed C for that.

Other than that exam was a breeze look forward to a state rank already rank 1 internal fuarkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
