I would love to hear about people's HPAT experiences and opinions on this years exam. How do you think you got on ?

I didnt find it as bad as expected but definitely nothing like the acer practice papers! section 3 i found very time pressurising and section 2 which is normally my strongest, always had me torn between two answers. Overall it was okay i think. annoying thing is you just never know how you got on.

Yeah, I had a asimilar experience. My exam got cut off several times due to technical difficulties and I lost a fair bit of time because of it but it definitely wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be.

I think ti went ok but that's obviously because I thought I picked the right answers ;) it's really hard to tell , i found sec 3 really abstract and not what i was used to doing but all we can do is forget about it until results!

I personally thought section 1 was a bit more challenging then usually and quite mathsy but that may have been because i was so nervous at the beginning and it took me a while to get into it! Surprisingly enough i thought section 3 was much more managable then the medentry exams. I was able to use all the strageties i had learnt despite it being a bit more abstract

Section one had a few weird maths questions and section 3 had a lot of weird shapes. A lot of questions in section 2 left me stuck guessing between two answers

I found it hard totake in the information given in the q's in section one because i wasnt used to doing them on the computer. The 2nd section is usually my best but i dont think it went as well as i thought it would! But section 3 was good :)

I found section 1 okay but there were a few questions that were kind of tricky, section 2 which is normally my strongest was okay but again there were a few tricky question that I struggled a bit over, section 3 was maageable but quite abstract I thought
