Looking for VCE Maths past papers to practice your skills and apply your knowledge? You’ve come to the right place. Go straight to papers>>
This year you’ve broadly had the opportunity to develop mathematical concepts, knowledge, and skills. Also, to apply mathematics to analyse, investigate and model a variety of contexts and solve practical and theoretical problems in situations that range from well-defined and familiar to open-ended and unfamiliar. You’ve also learned to use technology effectively as a tool for working mathematically. Your final VCE Maths exam will aim to assess as much of this as possible.
We’ve tried to organise this collection of VCE Maths papers as neatly as possible. There are CVE Maths past papers for VCE Further Maths, VCE Maths Methods, VCE Specialist Maths from 2006 right through to 2019 to help you get enough practice.
We’ve organised the past papers by course and year, naming the links as accurately as possible. If you find any errors, please let us know.
Sometimes, there is only a marking guide available, in others, the marking guide contains sample answers as well. The table usually shows each question and the criteria with each mark or mark range.
3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your VCE Maths Exam
- Be Familiar With Your CAS Calculator. Know what it can and can’t do. If your teachers are not showing you how to use your calculator for some topics, make sure you find out how to use it effectively for those topics yourself. Practice, practice, practice.
- Complete Past Exam Papers. Do past papers under strict exam conditions and don’t cheat by looking at the answers until you’ve finished the paper. When you time your practice exams aim to get as many marks as possible in the time allowed. When you don’t time yourself, your aim should be to work on understanding concepts you’ve not yet mastered.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your VCE Maths Exam
- Make Sure you Understand the Question. Get into the mind of the marker. What are they expecting to see? Read the questions carefully and make sure you’re answering the question. Use a highlighter or underline keywords in the question. Often students know how to solve a problem, but they misread or misinterpret the question.
- Communicate Your Mathematical Knowledge. Examiners are assessing your ability to communicate and reason mathematically. Set your work out logically. Include all mathematical reasoning and/or calculation steps in your answers. You can miss out on marks because little or no working out is shown.
- Use Your Calculator. For Further Mathematics, you have access to your CAS Calculator for both examinations so do yourself a favour and use it all the time. For Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics, you have access to your CAS Calculator in Exam 2. This exam is worth twice as much as Exam 1 where no calculator is allowed. It’s important to learn how to be efficient with your CAS for all topics. Also, learn what’s required for working out. Check examiner’s reports for sample answers.
