# MAY13 Math SL exam TZ1

Well, Math is done! How did you find paper 1? Personally, I did NOT like it :| I messed up so badly on questions 9 and 10!

Hey guys, how did you feel about paper 1? I felt it was very straight forward except for number 10, which to me was a bit confusing. A lot of people in my class found it easy except for number 10 too, and others also struggled with 9.

I was wondering what everyone thought of the exam especially about the question with the probability.

i thought it was significantly easier than past years, but my friends seemed to think otherwise

the probability one was similar to another that i'd tried in a practice paper, so i found it fine

I was wondering what everyone thought of the exam in general especially the probability question in section B.

I thought the exam was pretty easy overall...Which probability question was it? I already forgot half the questions on there. I graphed the last question wrong too, the one with the ln4 and the point of inflection or whatnot.

Yeah my graph for number 10 was weird...i just guessed the shape, but I checked with a graphing calculator afterwards, and i hope i get one mark for trying

I didn't have any problems expect for that probability problem, don't remember which questions it was

During the reading time, it looked as if it was going to be quite easy, but I made a lot of stupid mistakes, such as messing up the log rules, and matrix notation. I feel I did really badly on paper one. The probability one and #10 were awful. Everyone else I spoke to found paper one easy except for #10 as well, which is worrying me for my score.

What was the answer for the probability, last question? Does anyone know? I put 1/3 but I'm pretty sure that's wrong... :/

^ it was 1/5

Guys, this should be in the Exam Discussion forum.

Just as Rahul said, this should be in the Exam Discussion forum. DO NOT discuss exams outside the Exam Discussion. I'm moving this topic there.
