Not what I wanted, but you reap what you sow, I guess; and I slacked off a lot towards the end. Regret it immensely now.

So devastated that I didn't make the law cutoff. Is there any chance that I might receive a second or late round offer?
Congrats cherries you made it! We might be classmates next year lol

Can someone please tell me why I received an ATAR of 48 when my marks are :
English S:76
Maths G2:55
Biology:71
Arabic:73
Pd/h/pe: 72

When I called UAC the only thing they came up with is Laura and freakin Fred.
I know the average ATAR is 68. And my ranks for school (which I know doesn't matter are 2nd in English, 2nd in pe etc)
where as my friend who always got lower marks then me and hardly passed any subject got an Atar higher than me...

I think it's the subjects you chose, not so much your performance unfortunately :( arabic in particular scales terribly.

the HSC marks are set on a weird scale. basically 75-80 is the average, depending on the subject. your marks represent you being below the average for most subjects. those marks don't mean you got 75% in the actual exam though. depending on the subject, a 75 can be anywhere between 55-65% raw.

so in terms of a rank (remember the ATAR is the 'Australian Tertiary Admission Rank'), you'll be below the average.

Subjects may be low scaled this year. A lot of kids were complaining about this too in my school. They had marks similiar to urs.

for low scaling subjects you need at least all band 5's to get 70+ atar.
