l got 80 for chem and 82 for physics. l thought l'd get band 6 for both.
seems that nobody here got more than 91 for them.
what the hell happened?
it was an easy exam but it wasn't THAT easy.

The exams weren't that easy imo- I personally thought they were a bit weird.

If you look at the results, thread a few people got more than 90 in both subjects.

I thought it was okay. I was aiming for 95 and I got 94, still quite happy with that :) - chemistry that is.. I don't do physics

I was shocked at biology and chem!
I did a lot better than I thought I did!
(Thought low band five and got low band 6's :) )

I was expecting 94 in chemistry but got 92 externally and 87 internally. For physics, I got 93 externally and 92 internally - was expecting 95.

A few of my beasts went low-mid 90s in both, but from what I have heard from other schools (obvious exceptions apply), very few overall.

Haha my chem exam mark was terrible but at least it got averaged with the assessment mark.

I found the exam very bizarre though.

The physics cohort of my school is not happy at all.

My school isn't happy with physics but they're quite happy with chemistry.

We have 2 B6s in physics...so far, around 7 in chemistry so far (more coming - I think).

93 for phys, expected 96+. Very odd. If everyone was equally affected, surely they'll get scaled up in terms of ATAR contribution.

Me! Shocking!
Chem was 89 for me... and Physics was 82 (will not count).
Missed out on a band 6. Not sure how the rest of my cohort went with Chem. There has been a lot of disappointment with Physics though
