Scaled mean doesn't mean anything actually. Because it doesn't show scaling at all. Look at the aligned-scaled mark relationship. THAT'S what scaling is (essentially)scaled mean, hsc 09:
so it's pretty hard to beat standard/ESL in terms of crap scaling
yeah i know what you mean, i wasn't disagreeing with youScaled mean doesn't mean anything actually. Because it doesn't show scaling at all. Look at the aligned-scaled mark relationship. THAT'S what scaling is (essentially)
It's hard to explain how Enlish Standard has the same scaling as English (Advanced) but they do. You can check that out from various UAC scaling reports and other documents.
Yeah, with a normal brain like mine, I cannot understand either.yeah i know what you mean, i wasn't disagreeing with you
the standard/adv. scaling is a little complicated and i don't really get it fully. what i have heard tho is that it's very hard to get a high (scaled mark >90) in standard
No, that's not true. English (Advanced) generally has the higher scaled mean than ESL.esl had a higher scaled mean than adv eng in the past n yaers
i don't get why not all schools get their dux as the student with the highest UAI, cause UAI is a rank, so it's graded everyone for you...I was Dux of my school for 2008 and I did 4 units of English. I've never heard of a person who did ESL in my school achieving Dux. However, it's not impossible because Dux is awarded to the student who achieves first place in the most subjects.
I equalled first place with another student (5 first places) and just beat her for Dux with less than a 1% difference! The principal averaged our positions I think so it was extremely competitive!
um what?That's not true?
Ext. 1 English scales best out of all the Englishes, and Ext. 2 comes in second.
