Does anyone know what the raw mark for a Band 6 in Modern History would roughly be?

Does anyone ever get high 90s? What do you think state rankers would get in the external exam?

Are you 100% sure if you get 90% it won't scale you to a Band 5? That's what my teacher said?!?

Maybe you're confusing scaling and aligning. When a score is scaled, even if it goes down to 80s, it's not a "Band 5". Bands are given to the aligned mark, done by the BOS where in recent years, a score of around 84 would be aligned to 90, therefore obtaining a Band 6.

Would a raw mark of 95 get me a state ranking (rnk 1 internal)? Or are they only for people who get like 100

I don't think I'll hit band 5 so much ramble... I'd assume band 6 would be 87

I reckon it will be the same as previous years ~ 83/84. Quite a number of students do Modern History, and wouldn't be inconceivable to suggest that some students did struggle and found the test challenging. And even so, an easier exam is only easy when the marking is easy as well; marking could be harder this year because they need to find a way to discriminate between students' responses, and the apparent easiness of the examination, especially as the members here do not proportionality represent the cohort. Obviously not everyone in the state is top 5 ranked in their school, as apparent in students' signatures.

I agree, Modern makes Eco and maths look easy.
agree I do eco and maths and they are nothing compared to modern, its the one I put most effort into and will proabbly be my lowest too
