I’ve finished my test a few hours ago. Sections I chose were 1(math), 2(physics), and 5(advanced math&physics)
From the experience of solving the past paper 2016, I thought my math (section 1) was okay and physics and advanced math&physics needed more efforts since I got 15, 7, and 7 respectively for the past paper.
However, today, I screwed up my math…
For the first 25 minutes, I was nervous and psyched out at the test, and only solved 6 questions properly in math.
I tried to change some environments so just I turned to the physics section without finishing the math section.
Luckily, I successfully awakened myself and the physics section was pretty manageable.
so was advanced math&physics. I did much better than I did on the past paper I think.
Then I looked at a clock, I noticed that I only had a few minutes left for my math section
And thus I started to solve&guess (basicially guessing) for about 4 questions in the math section, and for the other 8 questions, I just guessed.
And paper 2 was pretty nice I think
Sorry for whining
So I was stressed and regretted for a couple hours, and I just realized that I need to be more practical and think about my future right now.
Will I be interviewed with decent personal statement & reference, okay IB predicted grades (41) and highschool gpa, and NSAA with bad math, good physics & advanced math-physics?
And since I am quite confident with the interview since im doing some advanced univ level stuff outside school, if I do great in the interview, is it possible to be accepted?
Do interviewers ask about my NSAA during the interview? (eg, why’d you get so low in math)
PLUS: plz don't discuss about questions. ㅖ
Have you got yours?
