# Math Ex2 aligning? (1 Viewer)

just got my results back and only got 93 for math ex 2. i was expecting 95+ because i only missed out 9 marks worth of questions and i did it with my comfortable pace (pretty slow for maximum accuracy). i'm normally pretty accurate under such conditions so i'm expecting around 100ish/120 which should be much more than 93. i'm just wondering what is the approximate raw mark for a 93, since i'm thinking of a remark. all help will be appreciated. thanks

Re: Math Ex2 scaling?

I definitely got 73-81 in the exam and ended with external mark of 93 so E4 cut is very low this yr

Same, i thought i'd get 100+/120.

It also depends on the marking scheme.

For example, for general solutions (I know, which wasn't examined this year, but just an analogy), if you don't write "where n is any integer" or something that qualifies the value of n, then you could lose a mark etc.

wow 73-81? then they definitely marked my paper wrong. i don't think it's possible for me to drop more than 20 marks in this exam because it was a fairly easy exam

i'm normally very careful with those kind of things. i don't think i dropped any mark because of that.

Thought I did uber shit (>50%) and got 91 examination mark so it probably aligned really low.

-.- i want my paper back... o well unless if i get some atar under than 95, then i'll probably stick with my crappy 93 which is annoying the absolute hell out of me. thanks for your responses since i know that they've probably marked my paper wrong now.

in terms of UAC 93 is still kick ass

however, 93 HSC mark hovers around the ~82%tile. to some this is crappy

I think I got 65/120 raw. Ended up with 84 aligned.

There is still a good chance that you may have made lots of silly mistakes in the exam on answers that you perceived would earn full marks even in retrospect of the exam.
I was in similar situation to you where my Ext2 mark was much lower than I expected.

I thought I got around 70 +- 5 aligned (if I was lucky and made little mistakes). My exam mark was exactly 90.

Hence, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that was where the cutoff was.

I got 93% as my final HSC mark for Ext 2 Maths and i marked my paper using Terri Lee's answers the day of the exam and i think i shouldve got around 96/120.
