It is unfair but its the way it works. I do fairly good in legal but the rest of my class, with the exception of 1 or 2 doesnt do so well i.e the majority will get band 1's or 2's and its crap for me. I need all the help i can get seems as i have 10 units and already screwed maths up.
wow, all ur assessment marks are so high.
in my class our highest for the trial was about 81% i think, and it was about 78% 4 the report...
mind u we have very intelligent people in my class, who get over 90 in other subjects, but to us 80% in a legal assess was a 'very good' mark???
i was alwayz under the impression that legal was a really difficult subject based on the two consecutive years of having the highest marks in our class in the low 80's...OR MAYBE..it's my teacher, i've had her for 4 years straight now, including commerce in 9 & 10, and never have received over 82 in any assessment...
or maybe we r just a class of dumbarses...???
if anything, i hope that the scaling people see that we've been jipped bad, and raise our assessment marks, now wouldn't that be good...
I dont know to the degree of which your class marks effect but i was always under the impression if youre above the rest by a significant amount you can remain untouched. I got 95 in trials and hopefully my hsc assessment mark will be in the 90's but your class does have impact when it comes to your HSC mark and the way your teacher marks comes under scrutiny. Say i get 95 and someone whos top of legal at another school gets 83 yet they KICK my ass in hsc, well someones been marking a little easy havent they....hence my mark will drop. So its all a bunch of cumulative little details which effect you, though in a generalisation if you get 85-100 you'll still continue to be placed in band5-6.
I hope everyone thought the exam was okay, i didnt think it was bravo but it couldve been a lot harder. MC was HARD for some unfathomable reason.....maybe not hard just tricky!!.
Goodluck with everything
I dont think you can judge length on pages, All the girls in my class who are ahead of me a group of 4, wirte about 8-9 pages, I only write round 5-6 but on average I write in excess of 8-9 wrods a line as oppsosed to their 4-5.
