    To all the people who have done the hsc or are in year 12 right now...

    Studying isn't hard. What's hard is failing and having no path to some meaningful employment. So why would you make it hard for yourself by not studying when that's the easiest part of it all. Is that good enough motivation?

    english advanced marks

    60s and 70s on assessments that are of similar standards to the HSC exam might result in your exam mark being in that range. You should always aim for the highest mark possible.

    Aligned mark question

    Yes. 2019 was the first HSC examination for the new Physics Stage 6 syllabus. It's not unreasonable for there to be large shifts from the norm when there has been a substantial change. Similar case in Biology.

    Aligned mark question

    I have tried to maintain accuracy of the database, and in this instance, it does seem hard to believe that a 59/100 could be aligned to 85, but there were reasons for accepting it and giving the student the benefit of the doubt. To be conservative, it might be best to ignore that mark and refer...

    Apart from HSC exams out of 100 and 50, and MX1 out of 70, are there any other subjects that are out of a different total?

    Am I screwed for my ATAR with these English marks?

    If you do end up last in your grade, then your internal mark will be adjusted to equal the lowest exam mark of your cohort (or thereabouts). This process accounts for outliers. If you do end up coming last, you need to realise that you probably won't get 92/100 because you haven't demonstrated...

    Ranks - Thoughts?

    Your ranks aren't nearly as important as actually understanding the content. What good is being top 5 if you and the rest of your cohort don't understand much? Best thing is to do past papers, even now (when the term starts - best to relax during your breaks). If you can't manage your way...

    If you completed a B. Adv Science, what more do you need to do to be an Engineer

    At UNSW, yes, the great majority of students will have completed Honours as that is a key indicator for your higher research capabilities. What is probably more important than the university reputation is your area of research and your supervisor. Think end game. If you want to primarily teach...

    UNSW - WAM for double degrees...?

    If you drop, your WAM at the time you were doing Adv Sci / CS will still be shown wherever reported. A new line item will show your updated WAM after you have transferred to Adv Sci. Any CS courses will still show and still be calculated in your WAM.

    UNSW - WAM for double degrees...?

    The WAM that is calculated is irrespective of your degree(s). It's simply the weighted average of all your course marks. Therefore you will only see one total WAM wherever it's reported. Your WAM is printed on a downloadable transcript, however, it is not printed on your official transcript...
