wait guys i have a question, you know after trials, you get your final report. With the grade, rank and your mark. Is the mark you get on your final report with all the assesments combined with semester 1 +2, is that the mark you get when you get yoru results. So that means theres no shock when you open your results because half of them you already saw on your reports?

Idk about other schools but our school provides the marks out of 100 for our final reports. As such they add all your marks + weighting throughout the year and puts it out of 100. Does that mean my report mark is what my internal mark it will be when i get my marks back? hope that makes sense

No that's not right. The actual mark that you get in your yearly report doesn't do anything, it's your rank. When you get your hsc results 50% of your mark is the mark that YOU got yourself in the HSC exam. The other half is the mark that was equivalent to your rank. So if in your cohort you rank 2nd (so the mark on your yearly report is 2nd) in Bio, YOUR bio mark, will be averaged with the 2ND bio mark. Then scaling happens etc.

If i got anything wrong correct me but I'm hoping i remember correctly. :redface:

okay. so basically what you are saying is that in my final report i can get 83/100 with ranking 2nd for bio. However when i open my results and look at the internal marks, it might not be 83/100 right? Cause i got so shocked when my tutor who graduated last year told me that the report mark is the mark you will get for internal assesment but i assume she's wrong right? Then whats the point of having the final mark in the reports? Can someone explain ples? @jimmysmith560 @carrotsss

Thank you that makes me feel better haha. I still do moderately well, I just struggle during the term to stay on top of revision because of work / training / tutoring. How did you do it?
tbh a lot of it is just prioritising time to make sure you’re doing effective study, writing notes or smth like that is pretty much a waste of time

The top student in the cohort academically. In Year 12, it is based on your ATAR. So highest ATAR = dux. In year 11, i believe it's the same. Or it was for my school. They had an external body come in and use the algorithms to estimate ATARs (but wouldn't tell us what they were), and the dux was chosen from that.
aight aighttt def not me but you never know............. so who heres aiming for dux :awesome:

* Some schools decide dux after ATARs are officially released, while others may decide dux before graduation based off cumulative rankings
What happens if a school decides a dux before atars and someone does better than them

unlucky

this is why that system sucks a ton, like if my school had’ve done it that way I would’ve probably not gotten dux

There's really only 3 of us who are fighting for the top and everyone else doesn't really care.
ROFLLL imagine someone completely randomly becomes dux and none of you guys are it. no offence @AsuTeksu im just being dumb lol coz thats what happened to my friends cohort. i finally get what they meant by 'dux' all the time :guitar:

also dont mind me scrolling back and reading the old stuff ive been up since 3 and im bored :biggrin:
