    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    63 to 82/120 RAW
    82 is my maximum.

    70/120 RAW is going to scale you up to band E4 I believe. (according to trend from past years)

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    If I'm the second luckiest man in the world, 90/120 raw.

    If not, ~85/120. (The luckiest man, incidentally, is the person I am trying to beat.)

    I have no idea what that means in terms of a scaled mark.

    is there a set number of people/percentage that get into the top band?

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    i think AT MOST, i got 77/120, but considering that i always do SILLY MISTAKES THAT cost me like 10marks... maybe just over 60/120..
    anyways with 77/120, 64%, no idea wat scaling would do tho.
    ohwells, people say u have to get over 70% to get E4..

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    the difficulty of this paper is similar to our trial
    for our trial, average was 70/120 which is moderated to 93% for the report and gets scaled to 96.5% for the UAI aggregate
    i suspect this the hsc will be similar to this

    My tutor says the trend over the years would be around mid 60% raw would get you into the e4 band

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    prob 70-80/120... no idea how that scales. i try not to think about scaling! just do my best, get the best possible raw mark and go from there.
    probability question was the worst!

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    hey lotto, i thought i got around 100, max 106- dont u think that'll get 95+?

    i doubt it'll get you 93...cause isnt 70/120 around 90 usually?
    also i heard that last year, a mark of around 95 would get you 95 scaled.. but i duno

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    I think your right, but i think you'd need like 75-80/120 for E4?

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    Max around 100/120, although likely to be like 90/120. Should be about 95 HSC exam mark hopefully.

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    I didn't attempt 4 marks (1 because i just didn't notice the question was there), and didn't finish another 7 (though i reckon i only lost ~2 or 3 for those). I fudged another 4 marks (should get at least 2 though).

    So at most 112/120, but i expect somewhere between 90 and 112.

    Say 100? That's still far worse than i hoped for... does anyone know what that would scale to? 93?

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    i realistically placed my maximum at 81, knowing i got some of my questions wrong, i.e partial fractions. i lose a heap to silly mistakes, so at worst case scenario 50%, however i reckon i got 60-65% so thats a mark between 78 and 72

    Re: Predict raw mark /120 + scaled mark

    This test was Super*super*super*....*super=nsuper easy
    when i looked at the paper I thought I got the wrong paper and I called the suprvisor and told him that I got the 2 unit paper not 43 unit paper and he said read the front cover.it is 43 unit. I finished the paper in 2 hours and i started to answer from last questions to first question. If we be honest, then we will need to say even this year's question 7 and 8 was not in the level of prevous years first question level. it was n times easier. I do not think i had to think about a question. Or maybe I am exagerrating about the fact that was easy. I got 120/120.

    Question:
    !20/120 MEANS BAND 6 SO WHAT WOULD BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ME AND SOMEONE WHO GETS 90, BASICALLY AS WE SAID 90 WOULD GET A BAND 6 RIGHT?
    I WILL APPRECIATE IF SOMEONE CLARIFY THAT FOR ME.

    i attempted 92 marks.

    ill say i got 88-89 of those right.

    minus 5 for silly mistakes

    83-85

    The difference is he/she wouldn't be an egotistical jackass about it.
