One of those tv stand things were right in front of me and I was so releived cause I thought they were gonna put the time on it. BUT THEY DIDNT AND I WAS SO PISSED! NOT EVEN A CLOCK OR ANYTHING SMH. Moreover, everytime the lady would say "15 minutes or 5 minutes" I would always jerk cause it would be dead silent. Also, it was so annoying how when one person coughs, another does and it goes like a chain.
Overall though Maths and Verbal were super hard for me :(
Reading was the easiest
Numerical was okay not too hard or too easy
Writing was shit. I really wanted it to be analytical. Although I felt my storyline was pretty good, I realised afterwards that I didnt have a problem. But it was quite an emotional story so I hope that would be enough ehhh.
tbh I think I did alright. I was so nervous. Now that the exam is over, idk what to do w my life now. What tf do i do w my free time now lmao????

How did you guys go on math, what do you guys reckon the superior score would be based on what you have heard?

I thought the start was easy but just time consuming. I could only get through like 45 questions but i think i got like 40 of them right tho. Then i guessed all c's for the rest of the questions. Many have said the end questions were hard as.

Hey fellow pursuers of greater knowledge(euphemism for nerd),

This is going to seem needy, but I really need somewhere to put out my frustrations. Iím usually smart at school and ace the tests.

And then the real thing. I really donít know what happened, it wasnít my day. I went from getting 47 right on my Hendersonís practice test to only answering 48 on the real one(managed to shade in the rest). Other than the English ones, I absolutely bombed out and Iím really dejected. I guessed 10 qs for all the papers other than Reading(which everyone finished) and the narrative(obviously).

Whatís got me even more worried is that during the Verbal reasoning test, I had to guess a few at the end and went less than 3 secs over. The supervising teacher came and blasted at me and said ďthat will be noted.Ē Does anyone know what in the world she means by Ďnotedí. I really feel like theyíre actually going to disqualify me or at least take my Verbal Reasoning out of contention(which is a shame because I feel I did well on what I did answer.)

Once again, if you managed to read that entire thing, good on you and thanks for caring. For everyone who did the test, I wish you guys the very best and I hope you get in(considering itís almost certain I wonít).

Honestly, the maths wasn't the hardest imo. I think numerical reasoning was the clear winner in difficulty, but that could be because maths is my strongest subject. Verbal reasoning from my experience wasn't that hard, but definitely had many hard words, nothing unexpected there.

Maths had quite a lot of quadratics, especially graphing them and vertex form equations, weirdly they had some cubics in there (x^3) and some 'harder' trigonometry (more than just finding the equation). On the whole, just year 9 content with some year 10 content will cover you for maths.

If you want my opinion, I'd say it is probably more important to focus on english than maths. Apparently from what I've heard, MHS principal has been in favor of including way more cultural diversity into MHS, which probably means they will be increasing the difficulty of english and decreasing it in maths. You probably shouldn't take my word for truth, but keep it at the back of your head and also, english is definitely a lot more importance beyond the MHS exam (VCE and the future)
