    Wink is a 99ish ATAR possible or nah?

    HEEY Y'ALL - so I'm aiming for just the best I can get but I reallyyyy want to score a 99 ATAR and I was wondering how much more of TERMINATOR/SOLDIER-ON mode I have to go at to get to this dream ATAR if my current situation is... (btw school rank: 224)

    Subject, Overall Rank, Average Mark

    English Advanced, 2/45, 98%
    Legal Studies, 2/28, 85%
    Mathematics, 13/86, 89%
    Maths Extension 1, 19/37, 65%
    Biology, 7/65ish, 90%
    Chemistry, 6/50ish, 85%

    Also: any tips would be greatly appreciated

    I can’t tell if it will be exactly 99 but it can get close to it, so maybe 97-98+
    But you have to improve in maths, both 2u and ext 1 and even chemistry.

    So to minimise the effect of your school rank, you need to be as close to an outlier as possible, so your ranks should be in the top 3 or 4 (roughly) for all your subjects, biology seems competitive so that’s good but for chemistry, you might want to push a bit more, and you definitely need to work harder for maths (WITHOUT neglecting or compromising your other subjects)

    So to get as close as possible to a 99 atar with your subjects, you’ll need to be an all-rounder (90+ in all your subjects) and maybe one mark thats higher than 94 OR two marks that are higher than 92-93 (or if you can do both then that’d be great), this should be enough to getting you a 99 or at least something very close to it.

    You’re doing well btw so keep it going!!

    Estimated ATAR is 95, so you're not far off! Just keep improving.

    94-95. 99 doesn't look likely but there's still trials & hsc left for you to maximise.

    Your English is great so keep doing whatcha doing!
    It's important to work on your maths adv and maths 3u marks, although 3u will need to be >~78 for it to have an impact on your current marks.
    If you can push chem and legal to 90 averages then 99 is definitely in sight!

    Best of luck!
