Highly doubt that you can overtake Rank 1 if he/she has a 1.6% lead and you're in a relatively strong cohort. 1.6% equates to a 6% difference needed to pass him/her in the trials exam. Considering that you're aiming to get 96, he probably has similar aims, and I highly doubt that he/she would "bomb" it, i.e. get under 90, or else he/she probably would not have such a lead.Damn your trials must be easy.
guarantees you the highest mark that a student who does the subject at a schools gets (so it is basically the internal mark), and the hsc mark is an average between your performance in the actual hsc and the mark which corresponds with your rank.Why is coming first in the subjects you pick important (does it have something to do with scaling)?
E.G: I come first in 2u maths in my cohort, and i get 95 in the hsc. However, someone else in my year got 97! That means that since u came first, you will "steal" the other persons mark" and get the average between 97 and 95.Why is coming first in the subjects you pick important (does it have something to do with scaling)?
