Society and Culture is all over.

What do you think you'll get. Raw mark

I think i did well in the exam, but there's no certificate on my PIP, which means I did crap on the PIP......So I think I'm going to get 90 (just).:(

Are you serious? We don't know our marks or band. Only the FINAl mark (exam plus PIP). Doesn't your teacher tell you that???!!

Everone, what was the highest mark for Society and Culture for 2001 and 2002 HSC.

Apparently, the highest in my school is in the 70's. :(

Hey,
Just because you DON'T get a certificate of distinction does NOT mean your PIP didn't do well (ie- 27-30) Working on what you said Survivor, only about 10 people in the state would have got 27-30, and that's stupid. The ones at the state library are the OUTSTANDING (and often most politically correct) PIPs that would have got 30. And so no, just because you didn't get that does not mean you didn't score extremely highly in that PIP - it's like ext 2 eng; just because you dont get in the showcase does not mean you couldn't have got 49/50. A girl at my school two years ago got 95 for S&C, and her PIP wasn't a "distinction" PIP.

Btw, I think in 2001 the highest mark was 96-97, and probably a bit higher last year. In 2001 it was a girl from Penshurst, and in 2002 one from St Mary's. Generally I think the markers are quite harsh, as in 2001 only 1.88% got band 6, but then you have to think not HEAPS of selective schools do it, and a lot of people don't try or think it's easy, leading to their downfall (plus, it's the last exam, and everyone is worn out)

Actually, the ones that get Certificate of Distinction are those who got 30/30 PLUS a prize, that is the ones in the State Library. around 7 of the PIPs get them.
I think 29/30 don't get anything.

I don't think I did too well in the exam at all, 70% is probably a generous estimate, but apparenlty I did well in the PIP... my teacher said that I'd be in one of the top bands... so I'm hoping that and my good internal assessment marks will bring me up...
So uhm, back to the question at hand (Sorry about my rambling!) raw mark... noooo clue!
