# Estimate what mark I'll get for maths! (1 Viewer)

Okay, so internally, i worked out my mark to be 50%. I did this by multiplying each assessment mark with its respective weighting, and adding them all up.

Now, for the external exam I'm pretty sure I'll get about 60%.

Also, my school is ranked 50th and is a very strong school in maths.

What band/mark would I be expecting?

5? I don't know. Guessing in the 80's. You'll be surprised at how the board of studies align marks upwards.

hey
your actual internal assesment mark doesnt make a difference mate - whether its 100% or 20%, its all do with rank. So tell me rank and how many students do maths and yeh youll probably get a better idea...

i reckon i got about 76/120 (63%) raw im ranked 4th out of 17 though and im pretty sure the 4th highest mark (which will be used as my assessment) will probably be around 85/120 (71%). So if i average them ill get a raw mark of about 67% - what would that scale to? Low 70s? Any chance of 75%?

What would a raw mark of 108-110/120 align to?

You will get 0. Victoria does not tolerate homosexuality.

Being around average in Maths at Sefton High (presumably, that's where you go. Ranked 50th), will get you around a low Band 6. So I'm guessing, you'll get around a High Band 4 or low Band 5.
