Top 11% or (10% I am not too sure) of competitors is a superior. From what I have seen in the past years, try to only guess 10 or 12 questions for all the subjects. (Once again this is only a presumption - so give or take a few). I am not entirely sure for the writing either (you may want to ask a tutor or someone on AN).

lol mate that's exactly what I am thinking about right now. I did the year 10 JMSS test, and have been cursing myself since the exam day for not trying harder on the exam. Dw, there is nothing really that can be done at this point. I just remind myself that it is not the school that determines VCE, it is the individual. If you rlly want to get into that selective school of your preference, remember that for you there is always a second chance next year.

Edit: P.S. just don't stress too much about it, think of it as a passing cloud. I'm sure you would've done fine.

Bro i dont know if u wanna hear this but numerical had more reading to it than reasing comprehension. Verbal had a lot of worded problems too. I found verbal and mumerical to be the teo hardest components of yhe exam. Now pleaae be honest, how many questions did u do in verbal and numerical because im trying to find out how others did to predict what i got in then. I did 37 in verbal and guessed and literally 15 in numerical, but i did very well on the other modules.

Bruh, let me be honest with you, from the sounds of it, and considering how well you said you did earlier in maths - you're gonna get in, don't stress. No joke, I don't think I even stand a chance anymore. But for verbal I did all of them, only guessed maximum 5. And then there was numerical, literally guessed 20 or more, but idk I feel like I've already forgotten how many i did or not. it was something like that. Good job on doing so well, really hope it all goes well for you.
Why are yíall even talking about the exam rn? I legit forgot it existed till today when I saw the Atar notes forum lol. The exam is over, you canít change anything now.

well, for verbal i did every question except for all the worded problems (i did like 4 of them), for nr i did about 30 questions and guessed the rest.

Bro thanks for boosting my confidence, but even though i did good on maths, everyone found it hard so it makes no difference. As u say, everyone found verbal easy, i didnt even come close to finishing. and everyone gyuessed around 20 for numerical, i guessed like 75% of the test. The Achievement tests are what will carry me, as i did well on reading, very good on writing, and aced maths, but idk if that will be enough.

True, but I feel like having a mental breakdown. Lol, is it just me?

haha nah a lot of people i know who tried out this year feel this way. like all the parabolas and completely new style of verbal and numerical was unexpected. just remember it was new for everyone. not everyone expects it. i never really expected them to have parabolas but previous years have had them (as well as binary and base 8 i hate them so much theyre the epitome of evil) but still. you should be proud that you even did the exam. my best friend (year below me) did the mock exam that james an was holding and freaked out after she sat it. a lot of people chicken out. the fact that you and many others didnt is already a massive achievement :)))

Ayyy! Whatever you need man! I donít know you in person (thatís okay) but I really do think youíll be okay and donít stress too much. If you pretty much only feel like you stuffed up on 1-2 tests itís okay- remember there are people who didnít even finish writing and guessed entire tests. And also, getting into MHS is quite a big goal, so even if you donít (I doubt that!) be proud of yourself. I think Iím the one that should really be worried! 😅

You shouldnít be worried. If i were u Iíd be dying of happiness because I did good on verbal and numerical
