    English Advanced and Band 6 Marks

    Hi, so my teacher told us today that we need to be scoring 19-20/20 on every internal assessment and getting similar raw marks in the external exams to just scrape a Band 6. Is this true? Band 6 is 90+ and raw external marks are weighted and aligned, so they end up being higher than raw marks, which I thought would mean that raw marks around 17-18/20 would be fine for a Band 6.

    My school's English assessments mimic the external exams pretty closely, so they are around the same difficulty as an HSC exam.

    No you don't need 19-20/20 in every section. Around 85/105 is the b6 cutoff
