    What raw mark is needed for 45+ out of 50 for SOR1?

    Anyone know the raw band cutoffs for SOR1 last year or the year before? Any past SOR1 markers? How hard do they usually mark, by the way? I got 49 in the Catholic Trial, but I don't think any of the RE teachers at my school have been markers.
