Man, glad that test is over.
I nearly cried at the rollercoaster question.
Lmao q7-10 was piss easy compared to that.
Anyways mark for band 6?
Around 80-83%?
Band cut-offs for 2U (based on last years results)

Band 6: 80+
Band 5: 60+
Band 4: 50+
Band 3: 40+
Band 2: 30+

Any less than a raw mark of 30% and it is presumed that you would not be writing the 2U Mathematics Exam and a mark of N/A would appear.

Help

Hey, I'm like really worried about my maths marks. I'd be lucky to get even 50% for it :(:( i am soooo depressed. I suck at maths,

Would 60/120 even scale for mathematics???

:(

Re: Would this be enough for a band 5?

Don't be fooled by the people saying 'oh, this test was SUPER HARD, THEREFORE 70/120'

That's just not the case. The test was different this year, but it was only a bit harder than the 2008 one really. Hence the aligning probably won't be massively generous.

Oh, and 88/120 = band 6? No way in hell. That's less than 75%, maths just isn't gonna align that well, stop comforting yourselves.

lol i must agree with u mate

Re: band 3 or 4 cut off

i can guess XD
60 i would say = 40/120
70 i would say = 50/120
80 = 70/120
90 = 93/120

of course no one knows =P

95-100/120

Would i scrape a band 6 with that?
Plus do the HSC examiners give follow through marks if you made an error before it?

Band 6

So many people are guessing what the mark will be for a band 6. Its ranging from 80/120 to 100/120. Can someone please give a more reasonable estimate?
