    Anyone done it? Or doing it this year?
    I've been entered and I have no idea what it is, apart from the fact that it's difficult

    You should probably find out what it's about then

    I did it last week and only did the multiple choice and the two short questions. It was wayy too hard for comfort.

    I got told to 'not bother asking'. I got 4 on a past paper so I think I probably got around there again.

    Ahh tough luck man. Got 26 myself, but I know the top was 29. Bit annoyed though, because the wave questions towards the end were incredibly easy, I just began running out of time and sort of gave up without realising there were marks to be "won". I do think it was harder than past papers from previous years though, so hopefully 26 is silver/gold

    Fair enough, I must admit it's quite daunting especially the equation (which I won't display as some may not have done the test), which relates to q14. Ohh and I totally fluffed the first writing question; I guess that was a bit hard. My teacher says that he's only ever seen 6 golds in his career though (20 years) so it must be hard, eh? So no need to worry I guess!
