The process of aligning is different to the process of scaling. A course can align quite well without scaling well (scaling is done by UAC not BOS).dwatt said:Hmmm...I've been doing a bit of thinking.
I know that band six cut-offs for Chemistry are about 84-85% raw. 2u doesn't scale quite as well..so perhaps 87-88% raw?
That comes out at about 105 marks. Is my reasoning wrong or stupid?
90-97, If I'm correct (which i'm probably not), would be mid-high band 5 marks.
That seems to be the figure that's mentioned everywhere so I'm going to go with that.watatank said:i think around 90-95/120 but it really depends how difficult this years test was in comparison to other years.
Was that 85/100 or 85/120??farahodish said:well, my coordinator told me that last year the raw mark cut off for a band 6 was 85.
this year cant have been too much higher than that.. wont be in the hundreds i reckon. probably 90 something
i mean come on, last year was 85!!
that relieved me when he told me that LOL
Well, I'd assume some freak would have got 120/120 for Maths.....there are a couple of Maths people out there who would!! Assuming that you said 85/120 would go to a 90, I'd say based on last year a 100/120 would go to about 94ish?farahodish said:ah you know what..
im still upset though.
i think i might've pulled off a 100/120 and thatd probably be a really low band 6 right?
I was hoping this'd be a high band 6 for me.
hopefully school assessment will average it up a bit more :worried:
