I’ll try my best to attend to the questions as there is H2 Math Paper 2 coming up and I have a lot of prepare. I’ll try my best to attend to the questions as there is H2 Math Paper 2 coming up and I have a lot of prepare.

Side note: I think the paper is tedious, but definitely manageable. Hard ones, could have been q3, q7a, 10, 11ib. So if you did your tutorials and past year papers well, with proper time management and no careless, 70 is manageable. To get an A, you need to fight for that 30 marks which really test you on your comprehension skills and precisions. And these questions should distinct the students who deserve an A.

Thoughts about Paper 2.
