    Exclamation Messed up my chem rank!!! Pls help? Advice!

    So i messed up my chem exams pretty badly this year to a point I am ranked 92/120 which is honestly the worst I have been ranked.

    I am aiming for 95+ but I am scared my chem is going to screw it up.

    I have two more school assessment task +HSC

    How hard is it going to be to get my rank back into the 30s-40s? What sort of marks will I need in my trials to get high band 5 or 6?

    PLease help with advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Realistically speaking it would be pretty difficult to go up to those ranks.. from bottom to top spectrum of cohort w/ just 2 tasks left but i guess just smash trials and also 3/4 of the chem cohort along with it w/ these next tasks. Although difficult, it is very much possible.

    Having two more internals as well as externals is equivalent to more than half of your entire HSC! You have a lot more to go so there is definitely room for improvement.

    Also think about rankings this way- if 8 people are ranked 1st and they got 10/10 on the exam, that means the people who got 9/10 would all be ranked 9th. And if twenty people scored 9/10 then anyone who scored 8/10 would be ranked 29 and so on. So what that means is if you are scoring 70% on your exams and you want to boost your rank by ten places then you would have to score maybe 75%. But it really does depend on your cohort. As long as you can keep average scores or even a little bit above, you will be able to get your rank up.
