    Technical question on illness and misadventure

    if you are accepted for misadventure, your exam mark becomes the greater out of your exam and assessment mark, right? For example, my internal mark for adv english is 79% and this means i would be guaranteed an external mark of at least 79%. Here's the real question. If the band 6 cutoff was 78%...
