Cheer up, is there a mark that you are at least proud of? If so, focus on the positive :)

assessment marks mean NOTHING
l just realised that yesterday. l got overconfident and thought my assessment marks would bring my hsc mark up, but l did crap in the internals, and got a crap hsc mark for my subjects.
the teachers really should tell you that your assessment marks mean jack squat and you and your class need to work their assess off for the externals.

a band 4 in most subjects scales them down drastically. just look at english standard, general maths and engineering studies.
there are a few courses that are pretty constant b4 scalers, like physics, chem and 2 unit maths.

l got all low band 5's in my subjects and the atar calculator says l'll get 86. so it is possible to get 80 if you get high b4's... depends on which subjects you are doing.

an e3/34 in an extension subject scales you up like hell :/

Gahh, got to hate some schools for giving false expectations for some students.... That said, it might just mean you need to do a re-check of your marks - if you are confident that you should have scored higher.

Sometimes you can't change your situation, the only thing you can change is how you deal with it.

It's alright to be sad. We're all human.

I guess all you can do is let time pass by and you'll forget sooner or later.

not well well but not bad, if you got a mid band 5 onwards for music 2 it shouldn't be that bad, and maybe <75 for music extension might drag you down
