Hello I just got all my marks back for my hsc tasks.
For reference, my school is in the top 10.

Can anyone please give me some direction of what ATAR I'll be getting or let me know what kind of marks I should get for trials and hsc to get a 97 ATAR

I'd be looking at the amount of band sixes achieved by your school (you can look on hsc ninja) to get a rough estimate of your marks because it's quite hard to tell with raw marks

On track for 97 if you pull up legal.

Yeah fam your school is clearly high performing so that's going to help a lot! Like idkkdi said, pulling up legal would definitely help! Trials do b coming up so now is the time to really grind out and try smash the highest ranks you can to really solidify yourself in a good spot for the HSC.

I did my HSC last year in a top 10 school, so here are my predicted HSC marks from your RANKS (obviously this depends on the school though).

Adv Eng: 89 --> assuming rank is around 60s, you're looking at scraping B6/high B5
Ext 1: 93 --> assuming rank is around 40s that's a low B6 (definitely depends on school though, some schools are better/worse at math/eng)
Ext 2: 93 --> same ^
Legal: 86 --> assuming rank is close to 20s thats probably a mid B5
SOR: 90 --> assuming rank is in the middle of cohort, thats probably just a B6 (but small cohorts can be very easily boosted or dragged down)

This is all from personal experience and my own schools performance, you should definitely check your own school's results. Looks like you should be able to get a 97 though, good luck with trials!

With a top 10 school and those high marks you could easily get a 97 just smash the HSC :)

oh wait so you don't need all band 6's or even at least majority high band 6s to get a 97? I always thought that if you get low band 6s high 5s would get a 90 atar max

I think Quickoats Didn't get all B6 he got 99 on the dot
Thats cause he got a rlly high mark in the highest scaling subject in the hsc, if he were to get that mark in say visual arts he would probably get a significantly lower atar (by 2-3 points).

If you put in a hsc mark of 85 for all low scaling subjects (e.g. VA, ipt, drama, music 1, general math) in an atar calc you get like max 86, but if you do ext 2 maths, advanced eng, phys, chem, eco, bio, you will get around 93-95.

Nah, I got 4 band 6s (they were mid B6s though which makes a big difference!) and a high B5 for chem + 4u eng. To be fair, they both have pretty good scaling which meant my ATAR was ok. I have friends who got all B6 and only got a 95 because she scraped B6s for all her subjects (plus lower scaling subjects). If you get a high B6 in one or two subjects you can significantly bump up your ATAR (eg my friend who state ranked a subject, got B6 for 3 other units and still got a high 98 ATAR, even though she had 5 units that were B5s).
