hi guys im just a bit angry and starstruck this morning

yesterday i was going through an array of calculators and they were all saying around the 97.00-97.50 mark, specifically hscninja at 97.05

marks:
2U Math - 91
3U Math - 41
Economics - 94
Chinese Cont. - 94
English Adv - 90

The cohort this year appeared to have performing a lot better, with more in the top bands. This would mean that the subjects would "scale" worse this year then previous years. Take a breath, and go for a walk or a swim to clear your head.

What ATAR do you need? There are many different pathways to get into your preferred degree.

Honestly, I do feel kind of lucky with my atar when comparing to everyone else's and their subjects/marks:

General maths 95
Modern history 93
English standard 92
Biology 88
PDHPE 87
ATAR- 95.35

This seems way higher than I expected, even more so because I went to a school that didn't even rank. I'll take it though! :D

Okay you were "thunderstruck" (astonished by the turn of events) not "starstruck" (reacting to an encounter with a celebrity/determined to succeed in performing).

Second, you need consolation (words of comfort and reassurance) not consolidation (the bringing together of parts into a whole).

To be frank, it's a miracle you did as well as you claim. Be content with it and work on your communication skills.

didnt know i could be an acdc song lmao next time dont comment if you dont have anything useful so say. Telling me I only got my results because it was a miracle and not hard work is frankly insulting, instead of giving me support you insult my hardwork and communication skills. Man you need to work on your manners

Im just happy to see someone else on this site who also studied Chinese. If you can get that fluent in the next few years than you will be so employable that your atar won't even matter

Neither scaled poorly. You were largely affected by your marks in Maths Ext 1 and Chinese Extension. In both cases, the cohorts were strong and your marks simply did not meet the level needed to gain a 97 ATAR.
