So i do standard english. My total trial mark was 96/105 and my internal assessment mark was 91%. Is it possible for me to get a Band 6 or at least an HSC Mark of 85+
Not really, last year 6.9% of the state got 80 or higher.still extremely rare, std eng is pretty much capped at band 5, but u never know, just try your best, It might happen!
but OP is asking for a band 6 not 5Not really, last year 6.9% of the state got 80 or higher.
Std Cohort for last year was around 27000-28000 people,
therefore number of people who got band 5 or higher last year is 1863-1932, which is pretty good, considering the large majority of standard is low english ability people and a small minority of people who are pretty decent.
nope, 130 students got b6 in std last yearYou should have done advanced. But anyway, it is very unlikely that you will get a band six. From memory I think three standard students in the state did last year, and that's about average. You'd need to be looking at a mark of 100+ out of 105 to be in contention for a band six in standard English.
