ikr. ok those people who claimed that the tests were easy, were probably trying to cover up or act confident to avoid getting nervous or something because i know for a fact numerical can not be described as Ďeasyí, unless youíre terribly smart to the point you can even comprehend those last 10 questions in maths

FINALLY SOMEONE WHO AGREES WITH ME, NUMERICAL WAS 10x HARDER THAN MATHS

Guys, not to sound cocky or anything, but HOW DID U FIND THE MATHS HARD?!?! I did like 45 for maths and guessed the rest. It WASNT EVEN YEAR 10 MATHS (except for the last questions). I thought numerical was hard af. I literally did 25 questions on numerical, then spammed Bís. For verbal I did around 35 questions and guessed. But I did rlly good on writing and though I finished reading, I probably got a above average

I personally felt like I didn't go too well. Here were my results:
Verbal and reading: pretty easy but those circle arrow questions were super trippy :) :)
Numerical:kinda easy but prob could of done better
Writing:EASSY
Maths:SUUUUPPER DUUPER hard :o :o >:(

Mate are u joking? So ur saying maths was hard, but numerical was easy?

ok so i know im not one to be posting on this thread but like:

1. damn they put cubics in the math exam yall really unlucky
2. there are sometimes incredibly late offers (one of my friends got sent one in november and another in early december)
3. i dont remember there even being a clock. maybe there was and i didnt even notice hahahah. you should however try to use your time wisely once you hear "5 minutes left". look at the questions you have skipped and think "can i solve this in 30 seconds at most?" if not, mark it as C (you can do B if you wanna be different)(this is the next time for an exam, doesnt matter if it's for shs or not)
4. apparently they completely changed the format of numerical and verbal after speaking to some people who were preparing for 1-2 years. if you did horribly on it (or you think you did but you end up with 6 superiors) youre not alone
5. plEASE PLEASE PLEASE for those who went over the time limit dont do it ever again. youre not supposed to be able to finish the test!! even tho some people might have, just guess the rest with those time warnings. peoples tests dont get thrown into the bin but that whole entire test isnt even marked at all. i know this is a horrible thing and its not making anyone feel better but please dont go over the time limit (tHIS IS THE CASE FOR 99% OF THE EXAMS IF NOT 100%)

im sorry if i sound even a little bit rude. these were just some things i wanted to say. hopefully yall really do get in to the schools you want <3
year 10: bio 1/2
year 11: bio 3/4 (hopefully 40+), chem 1/2, german 1/2, spesh 1/2, methods 1/2 & english 1/2
year 12: chem 3/4 (hopefully 40+), german 3/4 (hopefully 40+), methods 3/4 (hopefully 40+), english 3/4 (hopefully 42+) and spesh (hopefully 40+)

omg at first i thought number 5 meant that if we didnít finish the test it would thrown in the bin or not get marked at all and spent 5 minutes silently having a mental breakdown before i connected my last two braincells together and read it again shsjsks

wtf are u guys talking about, there were like 30 Numerical pattern questions which were like 13 minutes, and 15 other big af questions with 17 minutes in hand. The other 5 could be guessed, whereas, maths wasnít that hard either but WTF WAS THAT LAST QUESTION?? Verbal was hardish, I donít even wanna talk about reading comp as I hate that and I WISH IT WAS ANALYTICAL, NOT CREATIVE

Do they actually not mark my entire Verbal test? Does that mean they give me an average for it or is it just not counted? If itís not counted, then how do the schools choose or compare? Iím genuinely losing it right now!

It may not be counted, that brings your score down. Iíve heard that to get in you have to achieve a certain score on every test/ they add up all your marks and thatís how they get the students. I honestly donít know though. Iím freaking out as well. Itís been like 3 days but I still feel like Iím in the exam/going to do it. I think youíll be okay though.

Calm down everyone. Different people do differently. If someone found a test you did good at hard, thatís natural. Itís ok to tell everyone how you went and stuff but please just stop forcing your opinions on people. Itís super annoying.  :)
