You were recommended by another user for a more definitive answer. In the event that your teacher chooses an Option in either Modern History or Legal Studies for the class (e.g. Arab-Israeli Conflict, Consumers), and you are not satisfied with this option (perhaps it doesn't interst you at all, you feel you could reach your potential better with another option etc), what are the rulings about writing on a different option in the HSC exam to that chosen by your teacher and studied in class? (E.g. teacher has chosen Conflict in Northern Ireland and you wish to do the Arab-Israeli Conflict).
Any advice on this situation would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
I was just wondering exactly how hard is it to find a job as a high school mathematics teacher once your finish your degree. Is is like searching for any other job or does the gov set you up with a job ?
Thanks so much, I'm hoping it does align up, I have pressure to get it kinda, my teachers said "they would be surprised if I didn't get 100". I made a silly mistake though and have been stressing out about it for ages(I know, it sounds stupid to stress over it lol).
Probably - I can't think that there would be too many subjects where a raw mark of 99 didn't align to 100 simply because the full range of marks are used by the markers 0 - 100 but the vast majority of the state (at least 95% or so) will have a reported mark between 50 and 100.
I think you should be fine - they are significant events in his life.
As for being a 'mod' I think not - this is a board for students to help students and as a teacher, and a much older teacher at that I feel that all I can and should do is give advice and assistance about technical stuff or the History subjects and nothing else.
The gap will be maintained or even reduced due to aligning - when we send marks in we use the full range from 0 - 100 but the BOS will have about 98%+ of students in all courses between 50 and 100 so the gaps actually often end up one or two marks smaller - but that also depends on the average and range - you could also find the gap opens a bit - due to the lower performance of some of you cohort - but I have never seen that happen
and another thing
for chem, I'm coming 3rd
first person internal marks (sent by school, not moderated)-> 94
2nd person- 92
and I am 86
fourth has 64, so there is a big gap between top 3 and rest of the class.
say if the highest external mark is 90... that means my moderated internal mark will be 82? so that the gap is maintained right?
and I wont be affected by the class average if the rest of the class does badly because they will count the top 3 as an outlier. is that right?
