    can someone explain this to me......i understand the process of moderated assesment marks(thanks to bored of studies) however i havnt found a forum that addresses this.... now assume a student ranks first in raw internal assesmetn mark and external hsc exam mark say 95 and 90 respectively, now his exam mark stays at 90 but his moderated assesmetn mark is now also 90 right,,,,but is it exactly 90 or does it move up or down a little like 89 or 91??

    I think

    Q. Is it true if you go to a selective school like James Ruse, you are pretty much guarenteed a 99+ UAI?

    A. No.
    Is Yes, as long as you don't bludge (and apply some degree of effort)

    Is No, because not everybody there is so talented. Some will naturally be academically inferior.
    Although the UAI median for Ruse is around 99.4 or something, they still have some who are well below 99. I think their average is around 98 or so, but there's no guarantee of their UAI. They can't just go "YAYYYYYY I aced primary school and got into Ruse, now I can just play my PSP in all my classes and still get 99+".

    No, they put in their hard work. The reasons for James Ruse students' success are both talent and hard work.

    both student study; mathematics (2unit),physics,chemistry,english(advanced) and ancient history
    id say their final marks would be about the same (ie -student A and student B would have similar final marks). student A would get a higher moderated internal assessment mark (which is only fair as they wouldhave put in a consistent effort all year), but they would keep their poor HSC marks. thus it would average out to be similar to student B who gets a low moderated mark (to reflect their shitness all year) but, their 90% in the exam would count towards their final mark.

    i hope that makes sense.

    if u rank first in both internal and external assessments, your external mark will become your internal (ie - say your internal was 92, then u score 95 in the exam. you get 95 for your internal moderated mark, and keep your 95 in the exam, thus your final mark will be 95.) other students wont affect you if your ranked first now, unless of course they beat u in the exam, at which point you will graciously take their exam mark which will become ur internal moderated mark. ie - if another student got 97 and u got 95 in the exam, u get the 97 for ur internal mark coz u were ranked first. u keep ur 95 thus final mark will be 96.

    because you are ranked first, you will have ur internal mark moderated down to 90. your exam mark stays as 90. ur final hsc mark will be 90.

    kapish?

    u sound very stressed. relax. doesnt matter what school u go to. if ur ranked first, ur classmates have no bearing on ur performance at all. unless they beat you, which is a good thing for you (u'll take their external mark and it will become ur intrnal moderated mark)

    k then that sounds good. but then where does the process of "scaling" get invlolved. that moderated assesemtn process isnt the scaling right?? if not then what do tehy scale, the exam mark, the moderated assesemtn mark or both???

    What about if you finished 5th out of 30, and the top 5 marks were high 80's low 90's and the rest of the marks were 45-50's 60's
