QCE Subjects + Help / Re: Year 9 vs year 12
« Last post by Snow Leopard on January 18, 2022, 11:26:23 pm »
thank you, is there any way there could be a translation between year 9 and 12 (e.g. one term of year 9 physics gets taught over 3 weeks in year 12?)
We went from covering a Chapter from the textbook in an entire term in Year 10 Chem, to covering a Chapter each week in Year 11 Chem.

$\vec{OA} + \vec{AB} = \vec{OB}$.
$\vec{AP} = \frac{1}{3}\vec{AB}$.
$\vec{OA} + \vec{AP} = \vec{OP}$.

UCAT / Re: UCAT Question Compilation/FAQ
« Last post by fun_jirachi on January 18, 2022, 10:21:01 pm »
Hey I've heard rumours that the Situational Judgement section of the UCAT may or may not be in the exam..

Can someone verify this please? And if you don't know, do you recommend me to study it just in case?

Apologies for missing this, but unless something weird has happened, this will always be in the exam. You can consult the official website for details.

Hi,
Does anyone think the ATAR Notes UCAT guide is worth it? I haven't started preparing yet so I was hoping that it was good.

Thanks .

I haven't read it so I can't comment -- but with any book, try and read the table of contents and any previews to see if it's got what you're looking for at its price point before purchasing

UCAT / Re: Medify, icanmed, medentry which one?

Just going to address some points that have been missed above:

"Also, I'm in year 12 and doing 6 subjects, so I kinda want to do the UCAT but also scared that it would affect my other studies, so what do you guys think? does UCAT prep affect school subjects?"

Yes and no. It depends on how you structure things. If you find yourself needing to allocate time to study UCAT that was previously going to be used for your school subjects or vice versa, then it probably is affecting your school subjects. I'm yet to see evidence that under proper organisation, UCAT prep affects school performance. It's probably also important to keep enough free time for yourself too, to prevent burnout.

" Also, how many hours a week do you recommend practicing UCAT?"
It depends. You can ask for as many recommendations as you like and if you got explicit answers like 5 hours or whatever I honestly think that's poor advice (or at least, you wouldn't get the same figure every time). It really depends on however much you need. The one thing I will say on this is to try not to study more than you need to because at the end of the day it is an aptitude test, and much like anything else there are diminishing returns past a certain amount of work (you're best off doing something you need / like to do instead), except I personally think the drop-off, in this case, is a lot larger. This question gets asked an abnormal amount and I don't think my answer has changed at all over the 2.5 years since I did UCAT.

Trust your own ability and do your own prep, you'll do great!

And yeah, pretty much this.

A question for you: is there anything that prevents $p$ from having zero stationary points?

The picture more or less has the correct answer for ii).

Not particularly sure what else to say given it's not abundantly clear what you're confused by

What I've done so far :
b.i. I've tried deriving it. I know the amount of stationary points are 2 or 1.

b.ii I know for inverses must have be one to one in order to be an inverse. Which means there is only 1 turning point for the cubic.
