    Re: Band 6 cutoff predictions

    From rawmarks.info, it looks like low 80s typically gets a b6 scaled

    Tbh, Paper 1 definitely felt more difficult, but not as hard as people have made it out to be ~ Paper 2 also wasn't crazy difficult, but I don't think it was easier than any years so I'd say that the b6 cutoff would be roughly the same, low 80s or so. Hopefully we both get a B6

    Will be about the same as usual, paper 1 was more difficult but paper 2 was fairly straight forward

    I find it sad that my English mark is going to be higher than my 2U maths mark

    Re: Band 6 cutoff predictions

    If 83/105 is going to be the cut off then I reckon I'll get JUST below a band 6 damn, but yeah that does seem like a low cutoff as it equals about 79%
    hsc 2018:
    ancient history (88) // business studies (87) // english advanced (84) // french continuers (79) // general mathematics (97)


    atar goal: 87+

    trying to get to 1st place on space indvaders

    Re: Band 6 cutoff predictions

    83/105 would be great but in all honestly is it possible for the cut off to go any higher than an 85%?

    Haha same here don't worry I know how you feel for Maths.

    Mmm... maybe 85/105? Probably between 82-85/105.

    Re: Band 6 cutoff predictions

    Anyone else see that the band 6 English cut off for Advanced this year was really high?? To get an aligned mark of 90 you had to get roughly 85 raw

    According to one of my teachers at my school, who was a hsc marker this year, they marked really harshly, hence there were less band 6s. However, this didn't affect your atar at all
