    State Ranks

    Really? I was under the impression that state ranks were awarded on the basis of external marks only. Someone who ranked equal 3rd (I think) in my grade topped the state for adv eng, she got 99 externally and I got 98 externally (so our overall HSC mark would be the same?). Meh, guess I'll...

    State Ranks

    I'm stressing out because there's not a lot of info on this, but is 98 external close to being a state rank for English Advanced? Kinda scared now. D:

    UAC and HSC marks?

    hey, does anyone know whether the UAC takes into account your HSC mark overall or your raw marks when it determines your ATAR?

    What do people think will be the essay questions for economics?

    I certainly hope so. I've mostly been studying in depth for only the first 3. I basically ignored/glanced over case study, CAD and stuff like globalisation, in anticipation that they'll ask what I think they'll ask. Let's see how it pays off. D:

    hsc 2009 predictions

    Sorry to break the bubble, but I doubt they'd ask about macroeconomic policies for the extended response two years in a row. Environmental + Labour market Policies/MER/Structural change + case study + something from topic 1/2 (like protection, exchange rate, globalisation impacts etc). This...
