Congratulations! I didn't think they sent out pre-selections until after everything had been marked, but it seems they must.
They only started going out to schools to mark on the 29th of October, according to my event timetable... :p But mine got sent away so who knows when it gets marked.

Yeh, i got preselection too. This year pre-selection equates to a mark of between 47/50 and 50/50 for photography at least.

my teacher was at the marking centre for photography this year and found out that it was in that mark range required for art express consideration. However people can still get over that mark and not be invited though because the exhibition is g-rated and some material is obviously not suitable

Congratulations all. We don't get our actual prac marks do we, rather an overall mark of HSC exam, in class assessments etc?

Yes, I'm fairly certain that we never do get our actual BOW mark from the markers, I suppose it might be possible to infer from other marks from internal, if you kind of have an idea about how you go in the exam.

I have been pre-selected! Does this just mean nominated to enter Art Express?! I feel so naive. I made a film... :p It is very personal and emotional- it is a great shock to think that someone thinks it is worthy of attention.

Does anybody know the likelihood of actually get your work chosen after being nominated? I think I read somewhere that after the works get sent to the "Art Express factory" or what not that a great deal of them simply get turned away? Like a third or something?

Hmm.

EEEEEEE!

I got an internal mark of 46/50 as well and I was pre-selected...

Does anyone have any vague idea what the mark range is for painting & drawing for pre-selection?

well, at my school some people have already got preselection whilst other studios hadn't been marked as of that time. So i think there may be some spots that haven't been offered yet

well, depending on whether or not your artwork was sent to the marking centre, your teacher will be able to tell if it didnt come back with everyone else's. In addition you will get a letter in the next couple of days probably before you sit the art history exam. Good luck to everyone on friday

Ah ok, thank you :). I will be slightly disappointed if I don't get pre-selected. I mean, even if you don't get into art-express you have the assurance that you did really well. Ours were sent off about 4 weeks after the official hand in date (they were packed up and everything, but they only called for them on the 20th of september I think..)... crossing my fingers!!!...
