last year it was 79/105
and that was a pretty straightforward paper

i can't imagine it being as high as 84, especially not this year

they must mark really hard .. because just say if you got 15/20 for the essays, 10/15 for belonging essay and 10/15 for creative and 15/15 for short answers .. you'd still get a band 6? o_O

From my opinion, from the last two years, i think the raw mark would be about 76 -77.

also riproot, truth be told the creative was actually sort of challenging. the "remembered places" part could have easily screwed tonnes over
True. But pretty much anyone who composed an easy before hand and looked at the syllabus whilst doing it would have had something to do with memory and place and that could have been amalgamated to form something.

Letting everyone know: last year 82% after optional scaling was 90. And anything as low as 77% could've gotten a 90.

Also, to all those saying "definite band 6, YAY!" Not all schools Mark to HSC standards and you may be surprised about the harshness (this was my main problem when I did advanced in year 11 and just passed and just failed).

and this is the very reason that I believe that the cut off mark should be higher.. because in my opinion they mark so much less strictly than they do at school. I used my exact same points and essays and I got 90/105 for trials but at the HSC I got 101/105
You might've had easy markers. Generally they mark harder/the same as schools.
