    I think it will be mid 80's, the test wasnt to hard, but wasnt to easy either.

    Its hard to say because theres no raw marks for previous years to compare to so no one knows what wouldve been the cut off for a previous years test

    i agree, there were a lot of easy bits but tehre was the occasional question that just made me think "well eff me". but because a lot of it was based on a vague understanding and common sense, i'd say band 6 is looking competitive.

    Hi everyone,

    What you mentioned about the raw mark for band 6??... i thought that band 6 was just 90+ and band 5 was 80-90 etc etc... is it otherwise...?

    they align your marks on your record of achievment. i don't really understand the actual process but it depends on how hard the paper is, what kind of marks everyone gets, etc. your actual mark is the 'raw' and you will never really see that... aligned mark is the one you show your parents.

    hmmm well talking raw I estimate I will get higher than my trial mark which was 70. But as to how much... I dont know. I reckon maybee low-mid 80s which i would be happy with. Bio probably wont count for me.

    The BOS does not release raw marks. A mark of 90 aligned and moderated is a band 6

    trust me. everyone thought last years paper was a sinch but it turned out the state did not go aswell as they thought they had. they compare the papers rather than keeping 10% in band 6. they may decide that 15% sould get band 6. i personally thought it was about the same difficulty as last years paper

    They dont decide how many people get band 6, they predetermine a cut off for band 6 and whoever gets on it or over it gets a band 6. Theoretically everyone can get a band 6 if they all score a raw mark above the cut off

    yeah thats what i mean. the test should therefore have a similar cut off from where im sitting (at my computer lol) as the tests didnt differ too greatly in difficulty

    Obviously a band 6 is 90+, but we are discussing what mark people think will get them 90+

    I would argue high 80 raw will get aligned to 90.
