Got ducked by the adv AT1, weighting 25% it was a pecha kucha/ted talk bs and only got 18/30 which becomes a 15/25, ranked really low. I'm only hoping for a b5 for adv if I'm lucky, was 6th or some shit in prelim (but have started to fail since then) and about 7-8 people get b6 for adv but that was for the old syllabus (with a lot more people in advanced). Can I improve? Can I still get a 95+ atar?

Hey dumbfuck.

Yes, you can. It's only the first assessment; you still have 75% of your internal to do so anything can happen! What you need to do from now is to reflect on the preparation of your assessment that you've just done. Do you think you've done enough to prepare? Where do you think you could've improved? How could you prepare better for the next assessment?

Keep your head up and keep improving; you never know, a shift in your mindset can change your performance quite dramatically! Good luck with your future assessments! :)

Something similar happened to me, and other people I know and still came out with a band 5+ in the end. HSC marks for subjects are weighted as "50% being comprised of your performance in the external HSC exams, and 50% come forming internals (school). You also have 75% of your weighting left for internals, so try and learn and improve for the next assessment.

AT1 (ted talk/ pecha kucha/ no notes allowed when presenting) [25% weighting = 15/25] rank unknown, highest was 24.166 or 25 idk

1st in AT2 (comparative essay)[18/20, 25% weighting = 22.5/25]

AT1 + AT2 = 37.5/50 (teachers won't tell us our ranks)

still got AT3 (creative) and trials left, the first assessment really fked me over

Could I possibly even get a b6 for english if I continue to rank 1st for my AT3 & trials?
