    My teacher had to scale our chemistry marks they were so bad!

    HAHA I'm crying

    my grade failed chemistry so bad, highest was 84% the next highest was 69%, the lowest was 15% and the average was 40%.

    the 84 got scaled to a 90, and my 30 got scaled to a 45.

    to be fair, my teacher admitted they use questions for quanitiavive from last years HSC exam.

    oh well.

    has anyones else had a similar prelim chemistry experience?

    I go to a top 100 school, where majority of Chem students get band 5s and 6s, my teacher was distressed.

    We just got our yearlies back as well. The avg. was 40% but most of the people i asked were in the 30's or 20's... i just passed and was one of the few people who did. But remember this years syllabus is a lot harder than last years, my teacher said that we learn a lot of things that the the current year 12's don't know and that since it's harder it'll scale way better. yay

    Better to be hard and get it wrong now, than have it be easy now and get it wrong in the exam.

    I mean as long as it wasn't in year 12 it should be alright, I remember my English head teacher altered the assessment internal marks for year 12 and basically gave everyone 10 whole extra marks and when HSC came everybody get screwed by the HSC yikes, but yeah like Absolutezero said, it's much better to be marked harshly now so you can improve for next time

    Re: My teacher had to scale our chemistry marks they were so bad!

    We just recently had our prelim chem finals and 95% was quantitative/maths basically NO THEORY. It was good for me cos since it was just maths I finished in like an hour (2 hour test in total) and checked like 3 times but like half of the kids who do not do any higher level maths struggled a LOT I heard. This new syllabus is waaay to lenient to maths students. Like honestly NESA, include some theory to give the others a fighting chance.
