What was SOR2's raw mark for a band 6 last year?
And guestimations as to this year?

Not sure about this but I thought SOR I didn't align too well, so you have to probably get close to 45/50 for a HSC mark band 6. What do you think a band 6 cutoff will be?

Who knows, maybe scaling and aligning might be different this year. Was the paper harder?
I think it was a bit more ambiguous, but I wouldn't say harder. A couple of MC were questionable, the short answer in S1 didn't have a quote, or something to reference, so it had to be spot on, S2 was based only on the individual/group, so it felt as if you were repeating yourself in 2 of the 3 parts, the extended had fairly reasonable quotes, but the question associated with it seemed to go off on a tangent.

It was considering that short answer response only focused on 1 area (15 marks on 1 area).

no
both s1 short answers were very ambiguous

2nd one forced u to make ur own inquiries and conclusions (ie make a logical guess)
so fuckin stupid

Considering that the average for the MC and short answers will be significantly lower than last year (I imagine the multiple choice average will be at least 3 marks lower than last year, while the short answers will probably be 3-5 marks lower), does that mean the Raw Mark cut off for band 6 will around 77-79/100 for SOR II?
