Everyone is concerned about their ATAR after the HSC. That's the whole reason why they sit it. :p

I wanted like mid-90s but at this stage I'll be happy with 85+.

I wanted 97.5+
I'd be lucky getting 95 atm. I fucked up all my exams. All of them. I had two units of back-up just in case, but it doesn't help when you go shit in everything. :/

Would've gotten 20/20 for multiple choice, but i had to go back and change answers.
Could've gotten raw 90+

It doesn't help when you're stuck on 10 units like me.

I have 2 units of backup as well but I kind of screwed that up too - forgot the lyrics in one of my music performances, screwed up Bio pretty badly (was aiming for band 6 but will be lucky to get mid band 5), screwed up English, was never really good at Maths so pretty pessimistic about that, and got a really stupid question for Italian Ext. My school tends to do really well, particularly in English and SOR but I'm concerned that's not going to be enough. My ranks are kind of average, like I'm not at the top of anything like a lot of people here, my ranks range from being in the middle to the top 25%.

I have 12 units - thankfully because Agriculture was a total disaster. Just hoping Maths was okay, but I thought beforehand it wouldn't count (was aiming high in Ag :().

Re: Is anyone else concerned about their ATAR after their performance in the HSC exam

I was pushing for 97.

Unfortunately, it mostly relied on dominating mathematics. I got 90+% in 3U, but I didn't go so well in 4U :/

I don't know what's going to happen now :/

same except i stopped studying for maths after trials as thought it wouldn't count and i knew i could pass with what i knew... but after that ag exam and im quite sure i stuffed up bio so now im not sure that was a good gamble.

oh im still aiming for 90 but 80 seems more realistic

Re: Is anyone else concerned about their ATAR after their performance in the HSC exam

I'm aiming for a 95.4 because i wanted to do Advanced Math in UNSW. Both of my internal rank and external marks for ESL, Math ext1 and 2 are really good so far. But my sciences kinda fall behind, even though i did good in the external for bio, my internal rank was quite low (8/24) so i don't know how that will affects me.

Exactly. I dont know if its the same for other people, but those possible 5 bonus points can make a massive difference. So a 90+ would be good!
