Just a heads up my sister used Matrix, Talent 100 and Einstein and these are the ATARs they gave to her:

Talent 100 - 81.3
Matrix - 84.5
Einstein - 75.2

With a range as big as that of course it is silly to think that these things are accurate. So if you get something more than you expect, don't get your hopes to high!

EDIT:
Just tried Dux. It was 83.

Do you by any chance do any Extension subjects? Some of the ATAR calculators expect extension results to be input differently (i.e. doubled) and that can make a huge difference. Becomes more interesting if Maths Extension 2 is involved.

There were 2 extension subjects (English ext 1 and 2) and yes they were doubled where they needed to be.

Hmm.. it was pretty accurate for me. Weird.

That was back in 2010 though!
the higher your atar is i think the more accurate atar calculators are. Youll see atar calculators spraying for people around 70 and 80 but theyre all about the same for people in the high 90s

Well it seems that Talent 100 was 100% spot on! She got 81.35. I'm so proud of her. :) She was crying thinking she would get less than 70 for months and this was a major surprise for her. In other words everyone, never doubt yourself, you'll worry yourself sick for months!
