So I screwed up my trials and was too embarrassed to get an atar estimate :) so I got it on another account

I got estimated: 85 89 92-94 90 89 and 94... Boy were they off :) but it's ok I forgive you... Probably would have gotten 70 without bos

I got estimated by "optimistic" 88 and ended up mid 70s. Biggest disappointment ever.

The easiest case to a wrong atar estimation is that people give the incorrect school rank such as a 110 school being ranked 200s (because last years posted list goes to 100, so people estimate). And it does make a difference..

This - school ranks can fluctuate quite a bit, which adds to the overall lack of reliability with ATAR estimates.

Was estimated 99.5+/99.7, got 99.4. So, pretty close. :)

I asked Aysce through PM. He estimated high 80's-90, i ended up getting 89.7 so once again he was right.

Interesting. I tended to be slightly harsher with my estimates (couple of points) to try to get them to work that bit more to get a small boost.

That was my logic, at least.

I was estimated 91+, got exactly 90.

Oh also, my school dropped from rank 28 to 58.

Someone estimated 87-92 for me, that was halfway through the year. I got 89.45 so I suppose that's definitely accurate, nice.
