# How hard is it to get 70 in 2U Mathematics? (1 Viewer)

Hey all, Quick question, as the thread title says, how hard is it to get 70 in 2U Mathematics. I'm ranked 17/23 in a school ranked in 400's. Is 70 achievable?

I don't see how 70/120 isn't achievable - since it's only question 8 onwards that it starts getting a bit hard.

I meant a scaled mark of 70? Not necessarily 70/120?

To get 70 scaled, you should really get like 80 HSC mark. To get 80 HSC mark, you should get around 70/120 because 78/100 is usually the median HSC mark for 2 unit and to get the median mark, you must score around 60%.

what hsc mark would I get if I get 100/120?

^92/93

You must remain conscious of the fact that cut-off varies every year. However, there is a range of marks that are considered band cut-offs. From my point of view, if you score around 100/120, you should score around low 90 i.e. 92-93. That's HSC MARK. This mark gets further scaled to be counted towards your UAI. 92-93 HSC mark should get you about 85+ scaled mark.

You don't want a scaled 70, you want an aligned 70. That's easy to get, like lower than 60% in the exam I'd think

I was wondering - the higher I go abover 100/120, does it mean my HSC mark will go up more percentage-wise than how much the raw mark went up?say I aim for 110/120 - what would that translate to?

As far as I am aware, there is no clear "pattern" between RAW VS MODERATED MARK. So it's not like: 100/120 -> 93 and 101 -> 93.5 or whatever. If you did get 110/120, that should easily be around 97 depending on the exam. There were years in past when the top mark in the state was like 113/120 for 2 Unit Mathematics. With that in mind, 110/120 could actually get you a state rank (but it's rare thesedays as the exam gets easier and easier).As a rough estimate I reckon:100 HSC mark = 119-120/120, 99 HSC mark = 117-118/120, 98 HSC mark = 114-116/120, 97 HSC mark = 111-114/120. But then again, they fluctuate according to years. In 2003, the highest mark in the state was 99 HSC mark which means that no one scored 100% in the paper. Same story for 2006 apparently.

ah, I just finished the 2003 paper - I got like 90...cry

That paper is considered the hardest paper so you shouldnt' feel to bad about yourself. With that mark, I reckon you should safely score Band 6 (JUST though).

90% or 90/120????

Since my other thread isn't getting any responses (FFS), I'll ask my question here. So, in the exam, lets say Person A gets 69% in the HSC exam, and their rank is about average, like 10/20 or whatever, what kind of alligned HSC mark should they expect? Like the combination of internal + external.

Namu i pulled a 110 in 2003?
Would i be dead set for high band 6 or at least mid?

what happens if you get lower than 30/120 in the exam?

That wont happen provided you get off BOS and hit some study.
