A guy at my school (rank 250+) got a 98 ATAR in 2011.

This is off topic but is anyone else's half yearly exam worth 5%? lol

94.75

I only got 83 in standard English (86 HSC Exam mark)
Biology - 90
Chemistry - 87
Mathematics Extension One - 90
Mathematics Extension Two - 79
Studies of Religion II - 88(or something)

btw I also didn't finish any of the modules in paper 1 and barely scraped the conclusions of the 3 essays in paper 2 in the HSC exams.
Such a horrible feeling leaving that exam room but whatever UNSW accepted me into B computer science surprisingly, which had an atar cutoff of 91 :D

I still would have been .7 short with my HSC plus bonus points. Does anybody know why I got accepted? I think the cutoff was the same in 2011 and 2012 not 100% sure.
they're a bit lax with cutoffs they set themselves.

my half yearly exam wasn't a thing because my school doesn't know how to assess English and probably has one of the worst English departments of all private schools in the state. :3

84 Examination Mark, 78 Assessment - HSC Mark: 81

ATAR 61.65...

Apparently that 81 scales down to a ~64...

yep because OP cares about your exam mark.
It just shows that if you're in a standard English cohort that if you want to do well you need to top it or you're fucked.
