Lads I’m the exact same, always been a H1 maths student, got almost 100% in the mock paper 1 and am now wondering if I’ll get the H4 to matriculate for my course after that paper 1. The important thing now is to forget about it; a good paper 2 can take you up a grade, and in some cases even more than one, and it can change a fail to a pass. That’s what we need to focus on. Besides, everyone tends to focus on the bits that were hard, but they’ll be adjusted for in the marking scheme. Sometimes massive chunks of work that were too hard for people to get yield only 5 marks or even less, so don’t worry about it. It’ll all work out in the end :)
I’m the same. maths is usually my best subject i do applied maths too and was really banking on a h1 but i don’t even think i answered half that paper right. it was so weird compared to the other exam paper q’s . usually nice integration getting area of graph or average value. or even finding the max and min of easier funtions. i don’t know how people liked it. I hated it so much WHY ARE THEY TURNING MATH INTO AN ENGLISH EXAM didn’t even understand what they were looking for in the 1st q it was simple algebra but worded so weirdly . math should be find x. not someones life story about windows
Imo, the content itself was pretty easy compared to previous years, I think the reason people found it difficult was because the phrasing was different. Once you get your head around it, most of the questions were literally just filling in formulas and re-arranging them.
