Hello, I am an applicant of JMSS Exam this year ~ I am soooo confused about how the mathematics part will turn out, can any of you give me like a ranking out of 10 for how hard it is??? for reference, please rank the mathematics exam of MHS as welllll thank u

Also, I will be grateful if you can just give me a few examples off the maths question appreciate it.

P.S. Good luck this year’s applicants!

JMSS math: 4/10its really only hard coz of the time limit

MHS math: 6 or 7/10

so yeah the JMSS one is a lot easier than the MHS one and you'll probably also find the math is a little less competitive as a lot of ppl who end up getting in are good at science but not math.

The questions themselves are rlly similar to the ones on the edutest practice tests but in saying that those tests are a complete rip off and only rlly help for the math so I wouldn't recommend buying them.

A few examples:

1. *shows a graph with an arrow* what is the true bearing?

2. simplify: a

^{-3} * 5

^{-1}/y

^{-3}3. *provides shape with given angle* Find the value of angle x.

4. expand and simplify: (2x-1)(3x+2)(5x-1)

5. what is 9629091 expressed using scientific notation to 3 significant figures?

6. 3.29/5.6

7. Simplify √42 / √7

8. calculate the simple interest earned on an investment of $1000 at 5% p.a over 3 years. (this i know came up in the numerical reasoning as well)

yeah sorry this isn't the best for giving you examples but those questions are pretty similar to what i remember.

do you know if the test for year 10 is easier than the test for selective for year 9

the math and numerical reasoning are definitely easier but apart from that the tests are pretty different so if you find writing easy, youll find the test as a whole easier but if you find it more difficult youd find it harder. The science reasoning is rlly easy though and i wouldnt rlly bother studying for that one.

for me, yes it was easier.

Also a few ppl have messaged me about general school life stuff and whether or not it was worth going so if you do have any questions just about JMSS in general im happy to answer them
