    THAT IS EFFING BRILLIANT.
    Please be similar this year...Coz I will definitely get a band 6 XD
    Does that mean that, in 2006, 83=90, 84=91, 85=92 and so forth? Huge seven-mark jump...?
    Perhaps the cutoff will be higher this year because the test was fairly straightforward and simple.

    Uh, I doubt its 83+ for a band 6... You guys do realise how easy the IPT course is, this doesn't really scale up unless everyone sucks ass. Which won't happen, all things considered.

    >90 RAW almost definitely needed for a Band 6.

    Yeah, it is fairly simple, haa. Can't argue with that.
    Unless everyone sucked (seems like most people hated how there was so many issues in the paper) 88 may get us a band 6? Please?!

    Where did you get your estimate from, ctrlaltv?
    I'm hoping you're right =D

    Re: Raw band cutoffs?

    fallenstar, every subject aligns higher then its raw mark. it's the UAC scaling that scales the subject down, not aligning.
    a raw mark of 80% in any subject is generally about 90, give or take a few marks.
    for example: 82/105 (80%) in english was aligned to 90 in last year's Advanced English.
    last years 2U math: 94/120 (78%) was aligned to 90.

    so it would make sense that a raw mark of 80 give or take a few would align to 90.
    it all depends on the quality of the cohort. this years test was relatively easy (in my opinion), so the cutoff would be like 81/82/83. hope I helped =)

    Yeah, you could say that. I think it's because everyone worries around HSC exam time and surfs the net for a site to talk about it on...and since they know shit all about how the marking works, it becomes a mess!
