MX2: I know I got low 60s/100 realistically --> got 91 exam mark.

MX1: I think I got low 50s to mid 50s/70 --> got 92 exam mark.

I THINK MX1 and MX2 had godly aligning this year unless I'm highly underestimating myself but then again, I looked at solutions and compared.
Yep had something similar to your ext 1 marks

Alsp quite certain I got low 80s but I got 93 for exam mark for 2u maths

Physics: exam mark: 92 (mc: 14/20)

Estimations:Age of Silicon: 23/25, section 1 part 2: 43/55

raw estimation: 80/100
I think your raw mark may be higher. My 74/100 got aligned to an 83. I'm thinking your raw may be around 85-86.

wtf happened to physics this year? I got an exam mark of 82. I'm guessing my raw would have been low 70. Usually a low 70 would align to high 80... The test wasn't easy, I thought it was medium. 2011 was easier imo.

That's seriously ridiculous.

The exam was not THAT easy.
To be honest, there weren't many curve balls (mc was super hard though). And after speaking to a few people, the use of the solar cell as an answer was included in the photocell question, since a solar cell technically still is a photocell.

I'm not sure about your options, but ours was dirt easy this year.

I know that for the calculations I got full marks except for one mark lost from a silly mistake.

Maybe my 5/6 markers were much better than I thought.

But then again, I thought I did better in Chemistry in terms of raw marks, which was way off.

If panda got 83 with 74/100, then maybe I did get an 85ish/100.

If I got around 18/20 for multiple choice (4 raw marks on top), I doubt I would have gotten over 95.

If I do Physics tutoring, then I might buy back the paper.

Does anyone know what the last day is to order them?

The service closes on the 28th of February so you can make orders until then.

Yeah only if I do tutoring I'll get them. I'll base my estimates off the raws of others for now. I can still do it last minute if need be.

Geo 80 raw mark ---> 81 TWM ---> 89 exam mark (20/20 MC, 37/40 SA, 23/40 ER -.-)
Expect the B6 cutoff to be around 81-82

MX2 88 raw mark ---> 97 exam mark
(THOSE FUCKERS DIDN'T ACCEPT MY PROOF FOR THE COMPLEX NUMBERS AND TOOK 2 MARKS OFF! AND FOR THE VOLUMES I GOT 0/4 because of ONE silly error -.- Full marks for Q16 though :D)

Edit: How do I add my marks to the raw marks database?

Thanks for the info. I have ordered my Eco raw marks as well and will update when I get them.

I got 73 in eco lmao.

Probably got around 65/100 raw.

I thought I would have gotten 10/20 mc, 30/40 short answers, 13/20 for both essays. Seems legit.

That volumes working was worth at least 2/4. That's pretty bullshit.

But nice marks mate :)

screw the BoS

68.5/105 English (they mistakenly have written down 77/100 though) -> 81 exam mark
71/100 CHEMISTRY -> 86 EXAM MARK. (adds up to 72/100 but whatever, wouldn't change anything)
79/100 Economics -> 86 Exam mark (including one 2 marker it says i didnt attempt farkkk )

I must have gotten only 74/100 raw for Chem for 88 exam mark.

And for English, I must have gotten 70/105 raw. Big jump from what I thought I would get (85+/105 raw).

wtf, at the bottom they say 'raw mark = x/100' but apparently that's ACTUALLY the weighted mark (after options). why would they say raw and mean weighted.

and the woman on the phone from BoS had almost no idea what was happening with marks, scaling, aligning etc.

so it was actually 72/100 chemistry -> 86 exam mark. the cut off must have been ridiculous this year then. 71/100 is usually a B6

anyone know what the cut-off for physics was?
