HEY GUYS
i just want your guys opinion on this!!! T___T

i bought the hsc clerical check and raw marks for business studies cos the gap between my hsc exam mark and assessment mark is very different!!!
(exam mark 77 and assessment mark 93)
((APPARENTLY, MY RAW MARKS WERE 66 =.= SHOCKING....))

so i got my raw marks today, and Q23 to Q25 is written as "NON ATTEMPT"!!! except for question 24(a)
im guessing this is because, while i was doing Q24 (a), i wrote the wrong answer, and requested for an extra booklet!! i wrote my new answer for Q24(a) in the NEW BOOKLET and went back to my old booklet to write the answers to the rest of the questions!!!!

SO THEY ONLY MARKED MY EXTRA BOOKLET AND DISCARDED THE ORIGINAL BOOKLET!!!! WHERE ALL THE REST OF MY ANSWERS WERE!!!!BOTH BOOKLETS WERE GIVEN TO THE SUPERVISORS!!!
i clearly wrote (2) under the number of booklets section in the purple sheet!!!!

business studies is my strongest subject (rank 3/99) and have received top 10% for business studies for 3 semesters in a row!!! never gotten below 80 in a raw exam mark since second half of year 11!!


DO YOU THINK THEY CAN CHANGE MY BUSINESS STUDIES MARK AND MY ATAR?? please help anyone :O
its obviously their fault!!!!

they will be closed until tuesday (or wednesday) so i couldnt ring them up! but i emailed them about the situation!

please reply here or PM me about your opinion!! thank you!!!

Also BOS don't discard nooks with Writing on it.


If you are that sure buy your exam paper and everything which was marked will be given to you

Damn that sucks. Give it a shot. The worst thing that could happen is that they don't change your mark.

"mate" a non-attempt is given if the lines are empty =.=
not because i didnt answer it right
if i didnt answer it right, they would give me low (or no) marks
know your facts properly before trolling on this forum...
and since you didnt even do your hsc exam yet, i doubt youd know any better than me....

AND OBVIOUSLY i know BOS wouldnt discard a booklet with writing on it on purpose!!! im saying they MAY have done a mistake!! thats why im asking people on this forum!
AIMED AT BOS-ERS WHO KNOW THEIR STUFF. E.G. PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE THEIR HSC

Non attempts aren't just for blank lines. If you are asked a question and talk about unrelated stuff you will get zero. In other words the bos don't like waffles


You said ignored hence you implied they discarded it. Bos don't ignore books, they aren't that stupid

ilk is correct in saying that a N/A is different to getting a zero.

What you would need is that blue card which you signed at the end of each exam, your papers and your raw marks. Having these will either confirm or deny what you've said. Even though I disagree, if you genuinely believe there is an error, you're best off purchasing the papers to clarify the issue, and if there still is an issue, you need to contact the BOS, even if person if possible.

Seriously, the recheck system is flawed in every aspect. You get a clerical recheck to check for human errors, but there can also be human errors in the clerical recheck process.

GETTING A 0 AND GETTING A "NON ATTEMPT" ARE DIFFERENT!!!
i would not mind getting a 0 for a questions, cos that means theyve read my answer and decided it was wrong, which im totally ok with
just that they HAVENT READ MY ANSWERS, thus have me a "NON ATTEMPT" as they assumed that i didnt attempt the question, BUT I ACTUALLY HAVE, in a seperate writing booklet!!

AND IVE TOLD YOU i know they wouldnt ignore it on purpose!!! i have submitted it to them, but they didnt mark it!!! THATS THE PROBLEM HERE!!!!!!

Take them to court. Sue them for pain and suffering


Final answer as I said before. Buy your paper and you will get everything which was marked back. Them you will see if they missed it.

Yes.

But until it changes your current one will remain for the next few offers until it changes

(hopefully you would want it to change before main round)
