Do you reckon this exam was as hard or probs equally as hard as 2009?
I think 2009 might have been a tad harder.

Definitely atleast 94, might even scrape 95.
when using an atar calculator, do we put this mark in or our raw mark/70?

you put in the approximated aligned mark (your raw mark/70 gets alligned to an exam mark/100)

ahh so in this case, say I got a 64/70 for the 3 unit test, rather than putting 91% (which is 64/70 in %) I'd put around 97% instead?

Exactly that.

I reckon it was an alright paper.It took me a while to understand what the binomial question was about. I just started writing stuff down, and it eventually came to me that you needed to compare coefficients of x^2n. Yeah, so overall, it was a good paper. Not too hard, not too easy.

I think everyone should note that the score you personally get in the hsc will not necessarily be the actual mark that you get. That will be your rank.

So if i get rank 1 my mark will be 1/100? Cool!

I *think* he's trying to say out mark won't be our raw mark, but rather an aligned mark which essentially represents our performance relative to the rest of the cohort, hence the use of the word "rank".

So basically, our mark gets aligned lol.

Because even an 81 raw in 2010 aligned to a 95, now thats good news for an 84 this year
