Just a thread for discussion mainly for after the test but thoughts are welcome. I'm doing the senior one on Thursday, we have a little bet in our maths class to see who gets best in school (I know, we are too cool for school) Just checked a past paper on the website and it looks at the same level as Junior and Intermediate

Yeah I'm doing it tomorrow as well - I find it impossible. Our school gave us all the papers from 2002 to 2004 (with solutions). I personally found these the hardest:

Woah people this thread's getting out of hand, everyone calm down

Other than the one paper on the official website (which doesn't even have a amrk sceme, where could I get papers with mark schemes?

And what are the mark boundaries for each certificate? (Out of 100)

Right well I'm blaming my performance today on my food poisoning. I definitely got 17 questions right which gives me 93 points and most probably a gold certificate but I found it too timeconsuming and couldn't even look at the last 5 questions. I missed out the squares question (Q3) and the sin cos (Q16) and even though I spent 15 mins doing the working for the trapezium question (17) and thought it was right, it wasn't. Btw did anyone get 200 for the london eye question? I just went with the closest choice to 200 which was 100 but something must have gone wrong there.

Would anyone like to share their solution to the one about the five dots and three colours, where no two adjacent dots can be the same colour. I found that one quite annoying.

I put 500 for the one about the london eye. I'm not very confident though.

For the 5 dots and 3 colours one I got 48. I also got 500 for the london eye question. Fingers crossed peeps!

you are right about the london eye...

start at the centre, the one in the bottom right must be a differnet colour. Keep these two colours fixed.

There are 2 combinations in which the centre colour is in both top right and bottom left (with the other 2 colours top left making up the 2 different combinations.)

There are 2 combinations in which the third colour is in top right and bottom left(with the other 2 colours again in the top left making up 2 different combinations.)

There are 2 combinations with the bottom right colour in the top left. (With the central and third colour swapping places in the top right and bottom left)

This gives 6 combinations.

There are 6 different ways of arranging the first two circles.

6*6=36
