wasnt there quite a high percentage of students getting >90 atar STATE WIDE ?!?!?!? i think i read the figures somewhere but dun quite remember them =S lol (post HSC forgetfullnes =P)I'm gawking at all the 90's and am completely dumbfounded...
Only smart people use these forums? Seriously what the hell haha.
I think it was 17%. ALMOST 20% :O:O
yea 17 point something got 90+
proud to be in that 17%
I think they changed the cohort we were measured against when they changed the UAI to the ATAR (we were ranked against our year 7 cohort, rather than our year 10 cohort like previous years). Something like that could have influenced the number of people obtaining ATARs over 90.im no expert on how atar is calculated year to year, but wudnt the figures remain roughly the same???
and anyway if the percentages of >90 increased, wudnt the university cut offs also increase too?? =S

And yes, that does mean that university cut-offs would generally increase. Though, it depends on how much supply and demand has fluctuated since 2009.
Congratulations to everyone, especially those who achieved such phenomenal results. !!
I'm going to be doing my HSC next year and was wandering, those who got 90+ in their ATAR, did you begin studying excessively in the December/January holidays? and how much per day?
I'm developing a little studying/BoW regime and I'd like to know your own optimal pace and why it suited you. (of course mine will be different I'd just like some insight)
