The HSC score on the scale is the average of your raw exam score (i.e. the mark you received on the external exam) and your gross moderate academic evaluation score. The latter is determined by the process known as the HSC moderation process. (We encourage you to read more about moderation if you`re not sure how grade grades are handled.) Although 2007 was years ago, it still works the same way today. You can find the scaling statistic by searching for «Table A3» – there you can see the relative percentiles needed to reach different HSC and scale markers for different subjects. You may be shocked! UAC takes the first 10 units (i.e. the highest scores for 10 units), including at least 2 units in English, and adds all scaled scores to form an aggregated mark of 500. Therefore, the relationship between brands and brands at scale is certainly not linear. In general, if you are in the top 1% of your application, your scaled score for very broad subjects will be 49/50 or 50/50. One thing that often confuses students is the difference between the scaling process and the alignment process. When you receive your HSC, you get so-called «aligned HSC marks» that are out of 100. These are your final HSC scores and completely independent of the ATAR calculation. They are called aligned grades because BOSTES aligns raw exam scores into performance bands.

For example, a 92 in chemistry is by definition band 6 because it is between 90 and 100. Aligned HSC scores have nothing to do with the ATAR calculation, except that they are both calculated from the raw exam scores. This means that we might expect fewer people to drop out of law school in the next few years. Now, when we talk about whether a subject is «reduced» or «reduced,» it refers to the question of whether the subject`s raw exam score tends to translate to a much higher or lower grade. For example, students who score a raw grade of around 65 to 70 out of 120 still manage to score a graded grade of 45/50 for improved subjects such as Extension 2. Of course, this is a rough estimate, as BOSTES or UAC don`t usually release raw marks to the public. Therefore, all other equal and larger scale subjects are preferable, as they assimilate lower exam scores to higher scale scores used for ATAR calculation. For example, an aligned grade of 88 in Maths Extension 1 cannot be compared to a grade of 94 in physics. You can`t say that a 94 in physics is «better» than an 88 in extension 1. One topic can be more difficult than the other, and not every topic is on the same scale.

The only way to compare grades between different subjects is to have a fair process where grades from different subjects are converted to grades on a common scale. For example, if your grades scaled after scaling are: 92/100 for Advanced English, 93/100 for Chemistry, 93/100 for Physics, 99/100 for Mathematical Extension 1, 99/100 for Mathematical Extension 2, your aggregate would be 92+93+93+99+99=476/500 (these marks correspond to the top 1% in all subjects) and your ATAR would be a perfect 99.95. Note that if you are doing English extension 1 or 2, any combination of 2 or more units of English can count towards your ATAR. Example: 1 unit of Advanced English, 1 unit of English Extension 2. Basically, scaling converts raw exam scores that are not comparable into comparable staggered scores. Light. Exams for different subjects are assessed differently and have different overall results. For example, the Maths Extension 2 exam is out of 120, but the Maths Extension 1 exam is out of 80. So if you scored 67/80 for Extension 1, that`s your raw exam score. As mentioned earlier, this is not your HSC brand (aligned brand) because it has not yet been aligned.

Wondering what other social sciences look like? Well, if you look at the 2016 data, the average HSC score for business studies is slightly below 74.4. However, the average score in economics is 79, almost in line with the average of volume 5! I`m averaged mid to low 80s and I want to go back in time and hit my bags average average average average to 90. received A+ for units 3 and 4 and an A+ for the examination. completed with a study result of 45. Now that we have discussed scaling in detail, we can fully understand the ATAR calculation steps. However, it is important to note that although 99.95 is the highest possible ATAR, it has not always been achieved in all subjects. For example, the average ATAR score for Swedish students was 96.7, and the best average ATAR for Portuguese is 82! So this can vary widely, but for popular topics like law, the highest ATAR is usually 99.95. First, your raw HSC score used for scaling is calculated from your raw exam score and your raw moderate grade grade. 99% on average??? Jc how did you compare to your cohort? It is a question of ranking, not percentage. What rank do you think you have? Indeed, scaling revealed that due to the relative performance of all applications, the law and geography application is «less capable» than the economic candidate, hence the need to be in a higher percentile class in these courses to match a lower percentile in economics. In other words, your higher percentile requirement is offset by the fact that your colleagues in geography and law are, on average, «less capable» than your counterparts in economics.

Are you planning to drop out of law school? Does the Constitution scare you? Don`t you think you have what it takes to be the next Harvey Spectre? What did your OAC scores look like? And your general understanding. I feel very confident at this point, but I`m scared SACS Here`s the thing about scaling: it`s up to you to decide what you want to do. Small-scale subjects suggest a «less capable» candidacy, so it is theoretically easier to obtain a higher percentile in smaller scale subjects. Therefore, you should always choose topics in which you are good. It makes no sense to choose Math Extension 2 if you`re desperate at math. If you`re passionate about law and able to score in the top 1%, that`s so much better for your ATAR than doing something you`re not interested in, but with better scaling and a better score in the bottom 10%.
