Hey guys, what do we all think will be the band 6 cut off this year- being an easy test and all? I personally think about 85... Thoughts?

Really that high??? How can a cut off be greater than 90- or is that the aligned mark- in which case you would need say 84???
Its the same when a subject scales down. A 92 in geo is like a 90 is physics. So you do need 92 to just make the cut off.

No subject ever (according the the raw marks database 2.0) has ever had a raw mark above mid eighties for a B6, somewhat doubt this year it would be 92

That really doesn't make any sense- please explain?!?!? If 92 is a band 6 ...then if you got 91 as a raw mark- its a band five??? Wtf? How can it align to less?

Hang on, hypothetically... If you got a raw of 91 in the exam and internal mark of say 88, then you wouldn't get a band 6 under what you are saying??

I'm saying it aligns down, because it's easy. It's the same if you get 60 in a subject, it scales down.

If you look at the raw marks data base, it has always aligned up... In 2011 you needed 84 for a band 6 and so on.

Mate. It can align down too. This years test was easy. Please stop arguing.

the stupidity in this thread is amazing. To the op, the geo exam was pretty similar in difficulty to previous years and so band 6 cutoff will be low to mid 80's, i'd guess 83/84
