they are not "tough", they are stupidly irrelevant :) [a twist in logic, if you like, and often multi-disciplinary]

yeah... i really dont like those two companies ;D

Most recent VCAA ones. For chem and bio last year, I did a bunch of non vcaa exams form various courses and companies and none of them reflected the style and difficulty of the VCAA ones. TSFX ones arent that bad, they are mostly disguised vcaa questions.

Yeah, definitely ambiguous, but I'm assuming the mark is out of 90. I'm getting around 80-85 (although I keep losing silly marks due to me not double checking :P) Started alright though - only got in the low to mid 70s.

Looking at previous exams the A+ cut-off is usually around 76/90 (2006 was considerably lower though due to the difficulty of the exam). So I think 79/90 should be good enough for 40 raw.

The '06 was alright, but I still don't know how to freaking draw that output voltage graph in Electronics. How did they get +8 and -12V?
