2h30 and counting.
Staying calm is definitely a quality.
Preparing at Uni.
My goal was ( is ) a distinction.
Had another look at the specimen exam. In an at home TMA like situation with Mathematica a 90+ score is very well possible.
But with only three hours at the worst possible moment of the day (14.30  17.30) and with only a calculator, I am not sure at all.
Thank G_d, we are allowed to use the MST121/MS221 handbook.
Speculating...
To get a grade 4 pass...
33 + 7.
11 / 12 questions @ 3/6 + 1/2 @ 7/14.
That is still a lot.
OR
5/12 questions @ 6/6 + 2/2 @ 5/14.
To get a grade 2 pass...
12 /12 questions @ 4/6 2/2 @ 11/14
More realistically, questions are expected on the following subjects ( expected result )
I
2nd order recurrence system (6)
conics (3)
composite isometry (3)
function iteration (3)
linear transformation rotation / reflection (3)
matrix calculation (3)
differentiation (6)
integrationb (6)
taylor series (0)
complex numbers (3)
number theory (6)
group theory (6)
logic (6)
II
conic with xy component ( rotated )
eigenvalue problem ( 11 )
volume of 3D body
proof by induction ( 17 )
54 + 17 = 71 grade 2 pass
More tomorrow or after the exam.

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
I'm probably too late, but good luck Jim
