i find it RIDICULOUS how you have to pay for a clerical check

if there was a mistake, they should refund you the money (and even pay you for godssake for their stupidity)

But if it was for free, everyone would swarm in to have their marks rechecked and it would just cause a huge problem

The mistake will be adjusted for in the clerical check; however your mark cannot be lowered.
So if we think they made a mistake we call them tomorrow cause it says from 15th it allows you to check but our ATAR gets released then so can the ATAR change if they were a mistake?

Yes, you will be notified of your corrected ATAR.

If I got 91 (exam mark not overall) in chem and when I came out of the exam I thought I got 90 raw (84 at worst), should I request a clerical check? I did Catholic trials and got 87ish but I thought the HSC was easier.

So is there any way to get an actual re-mark of our HSC exam? Or are we only allowed to do the results check thing?

No remarks. Only the clerical check.

My parents seem to be interested in doing this for my English mark.
They don't seem to understand that because our text didn't work for paper 1, that our entire classes mark was significantly lower, and therefore, my mark was also significantly lower.

I'm a little unsure of if I should or not though; I didn't think that my English mark would be as low as it is, but I'm a little weary of spending my money on something like this... :/

Also from looking at the table it seems pointless, :p

Averaging out those years, 1484 people apply for the recheck and 18 clerical arrors are discovered. So going off that information, in this years cohort (72,000 iirc), approximately 864 students could have clerical errors in their marks (1.2% of the cohort). Food for thought for those who are considering applying for a recount.

Note that they actually mark much more harshily for Chemistry in the exam room than in probably any school in NSW

so where you may think you did something right, you probably didn't hence resulting in lower mark than expected

May I ask where you get told this?

Every time I have marked we have been told to award as many marks as possible - and from talking to other markers in other subjects they are told the same thing - to be a generous with marks as possible, unlike how we are at school, where we are harsh to try to get students to do better.
