probs around 85 for math, phys, chem, dk about English and legal.
edit: 85 for maths in other years considering ppl found this years paper easier.

100 if possible :)
If we are going to be realistic a band 5 or 6 so that would be 80 +

I know that legal scales pretty low so you have to achieve high marks. :)

Uhh that's very inaccurate.

You would need at least 90's for everything unless you get like high 90s for 1 subject which could compensate for a mid to high 80s for another subject.
wait is it actually that high? i thought u just needed like 93-94 in all ur subjects.

85s Raw is probably enough after alignment.
problem is you should expect less external marks than what u expect as a raw mark because external markers mark differently to your teachers and are paid per paper (meaning they likely ignore carry through and stop marking a question earlier into it if it seems wrong.).

Oh well I was talking about final marks.

Just realized person said Raw marks. Yeah in that case they're right.

getting 93-94 in every subject secures mid 99, maybe my raw scaling mark is wrong.

Raw mark to aligned (what NESA messages you). You’re inputting From aligned to scaled (What UAC uses to calculate atar) Into atar calculators.
