    Best 2 units of English counts towards ATAR... What does that mean?

    I'm taking Extension 2 English. Does that mean that if I nail Extension 1 and Extension 2 English, and do horribly for Advanced, then those 2 English units will count and Advanced is completely forgotten about?

    90 internal 95 external vs 93 internal 93 external for ATAR

    Is ATAR calculated by the raw external marks solely, without your school assessment (internal) marks? I did an accelerated course for geography with 90 aligned external and 95 internal with 93 being the final HSC mark. Using the ATAR calculators, 93 is pretty good with an atar equivalent of...
