I found that UMAX is a little bit higher than SAM.

JUAI: 91.90 (UAI) :lol:
Einstein: 91.50 (ATAR)

I really hope they're accurate!

UMAX is weird. First it gives me a ATAR in the 70s then one in the 90s after I reset... The UAI in the 90's is close to SAM though, just 0.05 less than SAM.

JUAI, Einstein, Sam and Umax give me around 96.00 to 96.50.

um..question:

Which do you guys reckon is more accurate- SAM or Einstein?

SAM gave me a certain figure, Einstein gave me 0.05 less than that figure.

But SAM gave a LOWER aggregate and Einstein a HIGHER aggregate.

huh?:cold:

I echo that "huh?"

I haven't used Einstein so feel free to ignore, but do both programmes use data from the same year to make the estimates?

well, Einstein 2009 gives 2 estimates:

1. UAI 2008
2. ATAR

And for the first figure, it was the same was SAM, but for the ATAR figure, it was reduced by 0.05.

I thought that in the pamphlet we got from BOS the ATARs trend at the top upwards? Not down?

Can someone whose probably read the pamphlet more carefully than I clarify whether say a predicted high 99s would actually go down (slightly) under ATAR?

That and the differing aggregates confuses me. I'm inclined to believe SAM because the high aggregates of Einstein sound fishy.
