I believe that the BOSTES website states that the performance of your cohort may have an effect on your examination marks.This thread has kind of confused me a little bit lol everyone is kind of saying different things. At the end of the day, does rank affect your marks? And no, I don't mean Ruse vs some 300 school lol my school is like 600. Every year there are a few people in the cohort with potential for B5s and 6s and around a handful will get an ATAR above 70.
E.g, last year there was a student who got 3 B6s and 2 B5s and her ATAR was 86, does that sound right? Like if someone at a better school got those marks is that an accurate ATAR estimate? Obviously I know it changes every year cos it's a rank blah blah but just humour me.
Depends on the performance of you, and the person ranked first in the HSC exam.Thanks! My year is not the brightest bunch, what you call "low-performing outliers" I pretty much consider 50% of my cohort haha. I'm ranked 1st in everything besides Adv and CAFS, both of which I'm just a few marks behind first and then there's a large gap between myself and the rest of the class. Do you think this will have a massive affect on my marks?
2nd and 3rd will end up with similar assessment marks.What happens if there is like a 5-6 mark difference in the internal ranks of 1st and 2nd, and 3rd was close to second, but everyone below that did had a big difference. But in the HSC 1st, 2nd and 3rd all were very close and there was a big difference in the others. Would 2nd and 3rd still be dragged down since in internal ranks there was a big difference.
