    90+ with no Band 6's

    I managed to crack a 92.35 without any Band Sixes (all high Band 5's). Is this common? Did anyone else end up with something similar?

    Eng Adv: 89
    Eng Ext 1: 42
    Bio: 89
    Chem:87
    Legal:88
    Math 2U (only one Unit counted):86

    Nothing unusual here, you received great marks for Eng Adv/Ext, Chem, and 2U maths which were the subjects that scaled you up.

    it's quite common for a 90 atar to be achieved without b6's. I know numerous people who've done so. Most, if not all, had decent scaling subjects (like yours) which is of course helpful.
    ATAR Goal: 95ish
    ATAR Achieved: 97.65

    Re: 90+ with no Band 6's

    You can even get 97+ without any Band 6s.

    89 in Eng Adv, Math Ext 1, Math Ext 2, Phys and Chem would give around 97.2.

    This is also a good reason why school ranks are not that effective. A school could get 500th but every student could have an ATAR above 97, since (unofficial) school ranks are based on the percentage of Band 6s.
