Why weren't there any Polynomial questions in the test? It is the only thing I am good at:(.

There was plenty of polynomials.

Where was the locus and parabola? There wasnt even one in there...

Where was the binomial proof? There was only 2 marks of binomials in the exam, and they were 2 simple ones.

I didn't study for that topic so I am not worried about that;).

the newtons question is not really polynomial more estimation of roots. but yeah it was only that one question worth two 4)c) , cause normally there are more binomial expansion questions in question 7, luckily there wasnt as i find them a little confusing, and hate proving them.

Hey if you had seen the M/ex2 test you would understand why there was no polynomial questions! Also why there were few equalities. Also what about SHM? That's sorta the same region of mathmatics. I am glad there were no questions of SHM on SHM like an HSC M/ex1 exam a few years back.

SHM questions, i would have liked that i like the projectile and SHm questions, cause it is easier level 4unit stuff.
Yeah the bad thing about an easier test is more competition, oh well
