    What happened???

    So, I am supremely surprised and very, very disappointed in my marks and ATAR, and honestly dont know what happened. Only thing im happy as fk in is english haha, no idea how in the hell I managed 84, since I wrote 5 essays off the cuff 3 days before english and did not get them checked or anything, just thought "English, you can go screw yourself bitch, I aint wasting time perfecting these essays"

    anyway here is situation for everything else, can someone pls explain, and can I get this fixed or what the fuck went wrong, I mean srsly...

    Maths extension 1: I checked entire exam with carrotsticks solutions, and including ONLY the questions where I got 100% the full answer out, I got minimum score of 56/70. But there were other questions where I messed up the tiniest thing right at the end, but got 90% of working out done, and it total I calculated I should be getting 62/70. Afaik this should be more than 91 exam mark which I got? (Since I was ranked 2nd got an 87 assessment mark fml -_-) I feel like a retardate ffs, not getting B6 in the easiest course at school for me.

    Maths extension 2: Now this is seriously fucking shocking, I also ONLY considered the questions where I got 100% solution correct, that equated to 66/100. Found 4 extras which I was told I would get, for 70/100. I got exam and assessment mark of SEVENTY NINE (79). Can someone explain, how the fuck is this possible? NO WAY IN HELL I got less than 66!! I GOT THE FULL FUCKING ANSWER for 66 marks, how can I get any lower???

    Chemistry: 18/20 MCQ, in long response wrote very detailed and structured stuff for everything, checked all calculations and messed up a bit in TWO calcs, like 4 or 5 marks at most. I could not fathom getting anything less than 90, would expect at the very least 93 or 94. I got 86, exam and assessment. HOW?????????????? Checked ALL CALCS with BoS, EVERYTHING was right except for those two questions were couple of numbers messed up.
    I mean I cant have seriously been THAT fucking off the mark in long response, jesus christ...

    Physics: Had no issues whatsoever in long response, I knew everything there was to know and wrote concise, to the point and used all appropriate terminology. Calculations I messed up numbers (Halved 550 for 225 lol) in THREE Q's, not more than 6 marks or something. And I get a FUCKING 83 exam and assessment.

    What even....




    Guys, I admit I didn't study as much as I should have, but I fucking knew my stuff pretty damn well either way, what the hell happened???? ext 2 especially I feel just WTF, want to destroy something in fire and acid and molten lead. Want to give someone brain damage and fuck them up so bad. Jesus christ man....

    Final atar was 94.55, everyone in my family, friends and all is like YEAAA YOU DID SO GOOD !!! DD


    In my mind im like YEAAA NO FUCK YOU, I DONT WANT TO TALK.



    Anyone see that Neel Kolhatkar vid? hahaha

    How clearly can you actually remember your response in the actual exam though?

    Me and realise have pretty good memory, we recited the maths comps to each other as well as chem and phys exams, to check how we both went.

    We can remember the whole exam and our responses yes.

    But like, with the x amount of effort I put in, I could have sworn it was good enough for 98 ATAR.

    In school I was never surprised like this, with such ridiculously harsh marking.


    MX2 is not even the marking, just, dont know what....

    How can I get 79 if I got the solutions for 66 marks 100% according to carrot?!?!?!?


    My maths teacher said throughout yr 12 if I dont make my work neater the markers will take off marks cos they hate messy work. Fuck them! If I get the answer I get the mark!!!

    Is that true?? Do they remove marks for messiness?

    this

    it is way better for you to accept the mark you got, which whatever way you look at it, is the one you got and start planning out your future instead of dwelling in the past, the latter will get you nowhere

    Re: What happened???

    I'm reading this thread and all I can think of is "excuses, excuses". Like, for pretty much every subject, you are supremely confident that you should have received a much higher mark - have you ever thought that maybe you just werent as good as you thought? By your own admission, you became complacent and didnt put in the work, so what makes you think you deserve better marks anyway?

    I could see this coming from a long time ago - you allowed all this IQ crap to go to your head and ultimately, you greatly overestimated your ability. I hate seeing anyone screw up, but I think it's a humbling experience which you sorely needed. So your choices now are simple, either you can keep making excuses and cling to the notion that somehow, it's everyone elses fault but yours. Alternatively, you can reassess and start looking at your personal weaknesses which led to this failure in order to avoid a repeat in the future.

    If you are genuinely curious or mad, consider buying your responses back to double check them.

    Hmm, if you're confident in those raw marks there's definitely something wrong.
    For mx1, I calculated about a 50 raw mark, out of 70 and ended up with a 93.
    For mx2, I calculated about a 50 raw mark aswell out of 100 and ended up with 85.
    Is it possible you forgot something and made lots of sillies?

    I know you're all being faggots like "HAHA DICKHEAD GOT SLAP IN THE FACE HE NEEDED" and "EXCUSES EXCUSES", fine, maybe chem and phys I was just off the mark wayyy more than I thought I would be, but maths I definitely did not get less than 56/70 and 66/100. I mean come on, carrot isnt wrong.

    I'll accept chem and phys with their marking criteria, but not accepting such maths results. Sheesh.

    then you can go ahead and get it checked but i will warn you beforehand that you are likely just gonna be wasting your money and time as it is highly improbable you will get any extra marks at all
