Hey guys I am trying out for Nossal next year, i am new to AN. From what i've read maths was probably the hardest.

Can u give me some topics that came up in the maths test?

And how was verbal reasoning? (Im soooo bad at this)

thx

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)
