Remember with raw mark cut-off guys you have to take into consideration option scaling.

So if you did an option which scales better this year, your required raw mark would be a little lower than other options.

It depends how it compares with the other topics in this particular test, probably average scaling considering, wasn't overly hard I thought.
It depends on the cohort who does that particular option as well. The 5 cohorts (one for each option) get compared using their core marks I think, and then scaling is applied to make it all even.

Nope, scaled.
A raw mark in the final HSC exam undergoes many changes before it reaches
a final aligned exam mark. Firstly, each subject’s marks are changed according to any
varying difficulties in option questions or prescribed texts. For example, in Advanced English
Module B, Hamlet may align better than Speeches (ie. a 13/20 in Hamlet may be “equal” to
a 16/20 in Speeches). These marks become the TWM (Total Weighted Mark) or what is
written down the bottom of a results check to be the “Raw Examination Mark.”


From the database.
