    Raw Marks Question

    Hi guys, so my ATAR goal for year 12 is 95.
    I have a looked at a few ATAR Calculators that have a feature where you can find out the marks you need for each course to get your desired ATAR.
    For 4U it says I need a reported mark of 74.
    My question is, what is the raw mark I need to be getting on papers on average to achieve this?
    Thanks

    Thanks, I had a look at this but there was nothing really around the reported mark I need haha.
    I don't think I'm quite E4 material for 4U.
    I'm fairly sure I can get that reported mark of 74 quite easily, just curious to roughly what that raw mark would be.
    My goal for raw marks in papers is around 65%

    65/100 is around mid to high 80s which when scaled is 94+ i think. So u should be fine.
    Also remember raw marks vary on each years' difficulty (like in 2010 65% scaled to like 93 or someshit)

    Okay thankyou.
    I thought that around 75 (reported), would scale to roughly 95 as it says on the calculators but I guess I need to work a bit harder.
    Thanks again

    You'd need like 40%. You should certainly aim higher as the benefits of higher marks can help offset low marks in another course.

    Oh awesome! Thank you!
    Yeah as I said the plan is to aim for approx 65 raw to offset my poor English (I am praying for 85 overall at best)
    So just getting it straight, approx 40% raw mark, gets aligned to approx 75, which gets scaled to approx 95?
    That seems insane to me Haha.
    Thanks
