    So is the assessment mark you get in your HSC actually the external exam mark that relates to your ranking in that subject?

    apparently. Correct me if im wrong, but if you're ranked 1st in all subjects right up until HSC at, for example, Ruse, then you can pretty much completely slack off at HSC cos you get the mark of the guy who came highest, as you were ranked 1st until that point. LOL I wonder if people at top selective schools have thought of that.... most probably haha.

    I would say definitely over 95. Your ranks are pretty good, maintain them and gun your externals then you're all
    set.
    Do you know what the dux of your school usually gets? Just as an idea.

    That's not correct. You can't slack off because you still get your own EXAM MARK. But yes, your SCHOOL MARK would be in safe, safe hands because it'll just be the top EXAM mark in your cohort.

    I am not saying that you will not perform well, however you must be careful. Do not get over complacent. Because for all we know, your school internally could be setting simpler exams in comparison to elite schools (not saying that is necessarily true although that could be the case). You are doing extremely well in school so far and that is commendable and if you are able to perform well in externals (do not think it's easy!), I am sure you will attain the desired course you want. Good luck

    Re: ATAR estimate please!

    OP, I'd say anywhere between 97-99.95. It's up to you Cause you are rank 1 in everything bar one and close in the other, we know you are a strong student, but not sure how strong.

    Hmm, asked one of my maths teachers a short while ago about the level of maths in exams, he said that the maths faculty forms exams by taking questions from past ruse papers, so that's a good thing it seems. Not sure about other faculties. Idk how good I would be if I was at Ruse LOL hopefully alright. There's an awfully large amount of Ruse people doing maths olympiads though, thats quite intimidating actually lol.

    But exam mark doesnt count does it? From memory of looking at people's reports it says HSC mark, Assessment mark, and maybe one other mark. Is that the exam mark?

    Your assessment mark is your school's moderated mark. The exam mark would be the aligned mark you got in the external exam and I'm pretty sure your HSC mark is just the average of those two.
