No, a 'band' refers to a 'performance band'. It means you performed at a standard equivalent to the top band. For instance, if one exam was EXTREMELY hard and nobody got over 90, that wouldn't mean people weren't performing at a high standard necessarily, just that the exam was difficult. How can different subjects be compared across the board?! Just think about your school exams. Some of them are so easy everyone gets above 90% but that doesn't always mean everyone's performing well. Some of them are so difficult nobody gets above 80%.Can anyone explain what this thread is about?
I was under the impression that ALL band 6s are 90+ raw mark...Why does each subject change? Is there a specific list of past band 6 raw marks?
If not, could anyone point me in the direction of:
I'd really appreciate it
