any one feeling as confident as me that they are gonna fail terribly.....i dont even understand questions up to 3 half the time, oh well im procrastinating, i really couldnt be bothered, if i can get a raw mark of 50% thats all im aiming for, anyone know how much this scaled up if it does at all? how much was it scaled up last year?

well.. this tutor dude was telling us that if u can get a raw mark of 70% then it usually gets scaled to the 90's.. not sure about where 50% raw would get ya.. it may scale down.. probably not, but depending on how everyone else went, then.. i duno.. dont aim for 50% buddy.. aim high! 100% here i come! =P ahahha.. goodluck dark prince!

I'm so not ready for this test.

I still need to go over:
The harder binomial theorem stuff.
The Parabola
Permutations, Combinations and Further Probability (fairly easy)
Polynomials

:(. Ive gone over SHM and Mathematical Induction and Circle Geometry... god, im gonna fail it sooo bad.

lol me getting a raw mark of 70% id unrealistic, although it depends how easy the paper is, i dont really understand much besides binomial, induction, probability, growth and decay questions and all other questions asked in 1 and 2.....i will be extatic if i get over 50% but i dont think its likely, and for the 70% if that gets in the 90's must meen heaps of ppl didnt get over that mark which means there should be heaps around the 50-70% range and ill be one of them...lol, newhom back to study for now i guess

lol hey wait a second, if i were to get scaled down for 50% and someone that gets 70% gets scaled up to the high 90's.........this is about an 18 mark difference initially but once scaling occurs your saying it becomes around a 50% difference, there just to be something wrong with that theory

Maths ext... where to start!!!!!!!

Totally, screwed if its anything like the 2unit paper...

Aiming for 60% raw (that's what I got in the trial).. What do you reckon that will be scaled to?
