Anonymous said...

Really?

Unknown said...

yeah😂

Anonymous said...

any idea what the cutoff points will be this year?

Anonymous said...

whats your name @25/25

Anonymous said...

based on observation/scores of people id say the difficulty of this year's paper is the same as last years.
id say the cutoffs are about here:
gold: 19-20
(imaginary r2): 14
silver: 11-12
bronze: 8-9
hm: 5-6

this is just a rough gauge and not super accurate, I would like to have some other opinions on what the cutoffs might be. thanks!

Anonymous said...

Gold is 19?

Anonymous said...

Last year gold was 17 and this year was harder than last year right?

Anonymous said...

Also when will results be out?

Anonymous said...

is 19 guaranteed gold

Unknown said...

I can tell you I'm from Victoria School😄

Anonymous said...

ok uhh to reply to the comments above,
I don't know if 19 is guaranteed gold, gold is tricky because it usually includes r2 scores so it was a pretty rough estimate. as for whether the paper this year was harder than last year, the scores attained by the people around me/in this blog seems to suggest so but I don't know if this is reliable because of the small demographic size. but based on personal opinion its about the same. and to the person who scored 25/25, congratulations.

also if yall have any other estimates on the cutoffs please post them here so we can get a better estimate thanks!

Can 17 have a chance of being gold?

Anonymous said...

Hi how about 22 thank u!

Anonymous said...

as for 17 its possible to get gold but the chances arent very high

as for 22 the chances of getting gold are pretty high
but as I said before I am not 100% sure

JY:) said...

What was past years cut off for HM?

Anonymous said...

What was last year cut off for silver?

Anonymous said...

last yr r2 was 14
so silver would likely have been 12 and hm probably 6

Anonymous said...

what about gold?

h said...

When do you think the results will be released?

Anonymous said...

yes when will results be released

Anonymous said...

how would we know

Anonymous said...

Maybe less than 2 weeks since no r2

Anonymous said...

are the results coming soon?

Anonymous said...

@Unknown who got 25/25 might be rickrolling everyone

If you go to the SMO Junior 2020 blog, you can see that he/she made these comments:

"whats the cutoff for gold? is 20/25 enough? how about junior team?"
7 Sept 2020, 16:26

"What does 9 get me"
8 Sept 2020, 09:34

and more.

These inconsistencies make it very difficult to believe that he/she got 25/25, or that he/she even took the senior paper.
