Very impressive. I'm curious as to how you can test mathematical ability, though. What sorts of questions were on it?

Aus Math Comp?

I did that, but I just fooled around. I know I got a place in the informatics test though, and that I should be getting mine next assembly. Don't know about the rest.

For those not aware, these are Australasian Specific Intellect Tests, not called ASIT because that's not their actual name, just the best way to explain it.

And informatics is computer style thinking. Don't ask, I don't know either...

Nope, westpac maths compo.

And there were a variety of problem solving challenges. I might still have the question somewhere...

Oh, that one, I don't remember what that was about, but I don't think I was allowed to enter (too old, probably).

However, that's still a great achivement. Grats
