Hi Everyone,

From some of my students, I've been able to get my hands on how different raw marks (for 15 different high candidature subjects) aligned in 2014.

Anyone got Industrial Technology raw marks (other than the 1 on rawmarks site)?

Trying to work out what a 98 exam mark would be raw (probably 96 lol?)

I have no information on Standard English. With SDD, the only information I have is that last year, 86 aligned to 88.

mreditor's students don't do general maths, they're too smart for that haha.
As blunt as it sounds, BlueGas is right. Don't have any contacts or friends or students who have done General Maths.

Hey, a friend of mine said this aligned mark various depending on your school rank and cohort performance in the actual HSC, is that true?
or does the aligned mark apply to anyone in any school as long as they achieves the raw mark?

Tbh I thought 2u math aligned better than this, I thought raw 80 would be easy above 90.

So you sit exam, result is your raw mark, this mark then gets aligned and this aligned mark is what appears as your HSC 'examination mark' right??

Difficulty of exams varies from year to year, so this probably that students found last year's exam easier than the previous years. You should expect that this year's mathematics (2U, 3U and 4U) are going to be more difficult this year due to the feedback from students and markers (and apparently a new supervisor), so an 80 in this year's HSC exam should easily be above 90. Cutoff for Band 6 will probably in mid-high 70s (76 or 77), but I'm only approximating.

Raw mark is your exam mark, which gets weighed for some subjects to a weighted raw mark (e.g. difficult electives for English means variations in difficulty, which needs to be statistically mended/evened out), then goes through alignment to produce your reported mark.

Thanks!!

And the guess that the math exams will be harder this year makes half of me want to cry, and the other half happy because of those lower B6 cutoffs.
