had a long convo with the BoS lady about this cause it said RAW marks but didnt add up correctly. she was very poor at explaining it. it shouldn't say raw, so confusing.

These are the raw marks but the BOS total raw also takes into account weighting of options. When there is a core topic, and in English there is, the options are internally weighted to match the statistics of the core so that a harder option question on the day doesn't penalise those students or an easier one advantage them.
