In case anyone thinks you need to ace ALL your exams to have any hope of getting 99+, I hope my raw internal marks will give you some hope that one bad exam doesn't mean that you can't do it. My HSC marks are listed in my signature in the format HSC mark (internal mark/external mark).

3U
#1: 49.5/66. Worth 10%
#2: 75%
. Don't know what it was out of. Worth 20%
#3: 80/92.
Worth 30%
Trial: 75.5/84. Worth 40% (obv.) Ranked 40ish.
Overall, I ended up ranked somewhere in the high 40s (out of 165).
Aligned Internal mark was 95/100.


4U

Great Work!

And your school has 3 out of 5 prac assessments. I'm just wondering if that's a bit too much.

It might have been 4. I can't remember correctly. But I DO know that it was at least 3. I'm not sure if there was a prac for Ideas to Implementation.

Did they get aligned so well because you went to sydney boys?

what about someone at a school ranked 500+?

School rank definitely helped me. However, all my external marks were higher than my internal marks, so...

At a school ranked 500+, it definitely wouldn't align so well.

I think a school ranked 20th would be a bit different.

The aligning would definitely be worse. Your ranks would need to be higher to get the same internal marks as me.

No. However, you can approximate your HSC marks if you have data on the number of Band 6s your school had in each subject in the previous year.

Great work. Inspirational bro.

It sure reveals how the HSC is a long game. (without using the cliched term "marathon")
