can someone explain how this works? do you mean they could split half your adv with 1 unit of ext?
From what I understand yes.

Each 'unit' is out of 50. Hence Advance is 2units (out of 100) and ext 1 is one unit (out of 50). Therefore they take one unit from each.

But that only occurs if your extension mark is greater than your advance mark, assuming you have more than 10 units.

I really do agree.

I am not sure if my faith in society is fading, or that people are just getting stupid.

ffs, you have to do ALL three sections, in both papers

Re: So many people keep saying they only take your best 2 sections out of 3 for Engli

Because it's not true? Duh.
I'm agreeing with you no need to be mean

They only take the best 2 UNITS of english. So if you do advanced and extention, and your advanced marks are better than extention, they wont take your extention marks into account. The whole paper is out of 45, and the entire exam for english is out of 105.

To clarify for the thread. Every section is counted. It is all double marked. The raw marks are scaled based on the overall performance of your year, which is usually reflective of the difficulty of the subject and, even if you are terrible at a section, attempting a section is easy marks. All of this is over though, good luck to the year of 2012.

All sections count. When people get their raw marks they'll see a mark for each section in the paper.

hahaha. Oh how the world is full of ignorant people and then there are the trolls!
Just choked on my cup if coffee!

All three sections count, and hence why time management is essential in both papers.
We were advise to spend a maximum of 40 mins on each section and no longer than that unless you are 'borrowing' time (eg completing sections 2 in 30 mins first then having 45mis for the other two and not spending 50mins on section 1 and then screwing yourself over for the other two).

What happened happened.

You can't really appeal or do anything. Just do well in your other subjects and hope for an 85+

Mate, you should know that you had to do all three parts. The format is like the prelims where you have to do all three sections. HSC writers does not put a section for fun you know
