Nope. It's like this,I'm not sure i understand. For example, if we get the same mark in 3U, but i don't do 4U and you do 4U, does that mean you rank higher than I do?
thanks so muchFrom NESA:
“If students are equal on the highest HSC marks in a course, then the following process is used to determine the recipient(s):
1. take an average of each student's exam mark and assessment mark after alignment to performance bands, each to one decimal place
2. take an average of each student's exam mark and assessment mark before alignment to performance bands, each to two decimal places
3. if an extension course, use the marks awarded for other courses in the subject area.”
If candidates are still indistinguishable (probably most likely in the maths courses where many students achieve 100% raw), I’ve heard that working/reasoning and even handwriting have been compared to determine the state ranks. NESA has awarded equal firsts (especially in 2 unit and genny) so I’d assume that sometimes the subjective comparison fails to differentiate candidates.
