Yeah it's right. That's what I thought as well, maybe the scaling was bad this year for bio or is it possible they made a mistake?

Looks like the aligning was shocking for all sciences this year...

It was at the least very bad for physics and chem, according to others who have posted their raw marks. A 74 in physics raw aligned to 83 exam mark this year. Usually low 70's in physics goes to high 80's...

Thanks

Band 6 cut-offs:

Chem: 76/100 I'm guessing.

Physics: 84/100 I'm guessing.

Biology: 86/100 I'm guessing.

Physics and Biology are shocking. Chemistry was alright.

Since different schools do different options, and different options have different difficulties, the TWM is your relative mark to everyone else after the options have been scaled.

And Raw marks are before the options have been scaled.
