I think they changed the cohort we were measured against when they changed the UAI to the ATAR (we were ranked against our year 7 cohort, rather than our year 10 cohort like previous years). Something like that could have influenced the number of people obtaining ATARs over 90.

And yes, that does mean that university cut-offs would generally increase. Though, it depends on how much supply and demand has fluctuated since 2009.
To see the ATAR cut off, just check the UAI to ATAR conversion table. My ATAR was 98.05, according to the table, my UAI would of been 97.9. Use that number when looking at cut offs. Though, of course, cut-offs do fluctuate from yr to yr based on demand. This is just more accurate than using your ATAR when looking at cut offs.

Congratulations to everyone, especially those who achieved such phenomenal results. !!

I'm going to be doing my HSC next year and was wandering, those who got 90+ in their ATAR, did you begin studying excessively in the December/January holidays? and how much per day?

I'm developing a little studying/BoW regime and I'd like to know your own optimal pace and why it suited you. (of course mine will be different I'd just like some insight)

Congratulations again!
I got 99+ ATARI, and I can tell you that you will NOT succeed if you don't study during the summer break.

Studying excessively during the summer break -

It's definitely a good idea to be organising/writing notes, finishing off as much homework/assignments as possible, but don't freak out if you didn't do too much work. If you're behind, or you're really uncertain about a particular subject, use this time to perfect your skills until you're as confident as you can be, however, if you're a smart, solid worker, don't get too down on yourself if you went out a little too much and didn't get enough work done.

I worked pretty hard during these holidays last year, but I didn't 'study'. I finished off extra work (that many people in my classes didn't ever end up doing, and yet many got 97+), I started doing my notes for content-based subject such as Ancient History (this was really helpful later on!) and I familiarised myself with HSC dot points and criteria. That last bit was the most useful!!! You need to know exactly what each subject requires to get the best marks. People who know 150% of the course can't write 150% of their knowledge in a 40 minute essay, so make sure you know how to approach assignments concisely, so looking at the criteria during these holidays is key. It will help you so much throughout the year.

I didn't get enough done during the summer break, and as soon as I got back to school I got glandular fever and my attendance was about 3/4 or less throughout the year, so whoever says that you need to 'study' really hard these holidays to get 99+ is being over-dramatic. Doing work is definitely a must, but don't stress out too much, you shouldn't overload yourself in this break. Relax! Go out! Have fun!

Awwww. I have a mate that got the same as you! That'd be annoying.

Nevertheless. An excellent result considering your expectations!

Hi-5 :headbang::headbang: The long summer break is the best time to get ahead of your friends, all you have to do is set up a challenge with the people you usually interact with. :idea:
