UAIs aren't rounded to the next whole number. There's no way to tell at this point what the cut-offs for this year's courses will be - some year's they're higher than for the previous year and some years they're lower.

but does the UAI change?

.... will the UAI contribution be the same? as in 84 assesment + 85 exam = 85 assesment +85 exam?

No. The formula for moderating your year 12 marks to derive your HSC marks isn't the same as the formula used for determining your UAI.

The first moderates your year 12 marks so you can be compared to all other students who did the same subject. The second formula scales your marks so that you can be compared to all students who did the HSC this year.

hmmm i dont quite get it. okay let me rephrase it.
When calculating the uai does UAC only use whole numbers;
(eg assesment 84: exam mark 85 : hsc mark 85) or will it use half marks as well i.e for the same example they would use 84.5.
