    Subjects and hsc

    If my subjects are
    Society and culture, legal studies, standard english, religion 1 unit, business services and senior science
    And I haven't done so well, can I still achieve over 75 or are they too low scaling for that?

    You would have to provide some more quantitative stuff, like your marks, ranks, and your school rank too probably, for anyone to make a correct judgement on your situation. There are still externals left, worth 50%, and I would really just recommend trying your hardest to smash those out, instead of worrying too too much on the fine details of your results

    Marks range from 40% to 70% :/ Ranks are about middle, almost last for literally 2 subjects
    If I do well in externals, can I pull off 80 or no?

    Your position relative to your cohort will hurt your final moderated internal marks thus your atar and it’s hard to tell how much exactly since we don’t know how your school usually performs in the externals. Don’t focus too much on marks but just do the best you can.

    What if the top 20 people are literally 1-3 marks away from each other, and the school normally doesn't do very well academically (ranked 200-300s) but this year's cohort seems to be an exception?

    Usually the people with last rankings in my school always get pulled up quite a bit because they step their game real high in the hsc. Last year there were people coming literally last with internal marks of 40 and then get around 80 in the hsc
    But idk, I'll do my best

    I believe that you can pull off an Atar that you are proud of. The HSC counts for half of your results, HALF. So there is a lot of opportunity to improve and time to study!

    70-75 is achievable but only if you get 85%+ in externals for all subs.

    Put your head down and reap the rewards.

    You have to do hard work for better marks. Planned study will make you better in subjects. Best of luck.
