    Question 90+ ATAR after disappointing half yearlies

    I go to a girls school ranked top 30 in NSW. My recent results have been disappointing leaving me very unmotivated. I want to know if I could still achieve an atar of 90+ with all my results placing me between low above average ranks and marks ranging 50-70%. My subjects are Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Standard English, Maths 2u

    I am willing to work harder but just need some realistic views of past HSC students and any similar situations

    The exams contributed around 20% overall

    Re: 90+ ATAR after disappointing half yearlies

    Yep, you can most definitely hit 90+ ATAR. Sure, half-yearly exams are worth around 20% of internals, but when you take into account the externals, your half-yearly exams are actually worth something closer to 10%.

    So don't worry; just work harder. Use the holidays to bridge any gaps in your knowledge and work out why you didn't do as well as you wanted. As long as you can put your time to good use, you can most definitely do well.
