Short writeup:

The 2022 Victoria School A Math Paper 1 & 2 presents a balanced challenge, ideal for students aiming to refine their skills and test their time management. The questions, while not groundbreaking in insights, emphasize the importance of presenting answers in exact values, steering students away from over-reliance on calculators.

There are questions which are straightforward and easy to tackle, accounting for about 10 to 20% of the paper. The real strength lies in the more insightful questions that demand in-depth thinking and frequent problem types with a twist. These questions push even experienced students to a slightly above-average level, with the main challenge being time management due to their tedious nature.

Overall, this is a decent paper offering valuable challenges. Students who are less prepared might struggle, while those well-prepared will find it a good gauge of their performance under time constraints. I recommend using this paper as a timed practice to see how you fare in a more demanding exam setting.

This personalized approach will help you understand your mistakes, improve your skills, and boost your confidence for the actual exams.
