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+

still extremely rare, std eng is pretty much capped at band 5, but u never know, just try your best, It might happen! :)
Not 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.

You 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.

nope, 130 students got b6 in std last year

b6 is about 87+/105
