Hey how is everyone, I am sitting a Stat test on Saturday because I failed to score 70.25 in my stupid HSC :mad: I got 68.9 :(. Anyways I am extremely worried about this, because it is the difference between me going to uni, or me going to work at a factory for the rest of my life.

What can I revise, Ive done the book that the UAC office gave me with the sample test, I dont see anything you can study in particular and its all a bit random :S?
I am also worried with the score I got in the practice test I got a 50/70 :(:(:(, Im not sure how this converts to the score they give you at the end?
I also want to clarify something else, I was told to get a equivalent 77.10 ATAR in the Stat test is getting a final mark of 155, does that mean 70 is in the low 140's? would my 50/70 give me this score.

Thanks Heaps!

I took it in 2008. Studying won't help you do any better in it.

Why did you do poorly in the HSC? Did you simply not care about it, or did you just find it difficult?

Oh I did care very much :). Some terrible subject choices such as Advanced English and Software Design and being a extremely crappy school where 8 teachers came and went for Software Design, it wasnt easy.

My friend and I did extremely poorly in the HSC, he got a UAI of around 48, I got a UAI of around 46. We took the STAT to get into university, I believe he scored in the 73rd percentile or so and got into Computer Science at UWS, I scored in the 96.4th percentile and got into Arts at UWS. If you are reasonably smart you should be fine.

So there is no way to actually find out if I scored a 50/70 what percentile I would be in?

There are a lot of very smart HSC students doing it so they can get into pharmacy or veterinary science at USyd.

Doesnt sound too good ;), Oh well what ever happends, I know I could have got an ATAR of 80 if I didnt do Advanced English and Software Design, these people can't be the smartest, if they were they'd be in their courses already.

Edit:
Dont worry Ive discovered what you mean ,they need to sit the STAT test, Im aiming for a 70.25 so I dont need to be on par with them.
Wouldn't most of them sat the test after the hsc last year?

just relax mate, who said if you dont get in you will spending the rest of your life working in a factory.

there are always ways to get into university, even if you work for a year or two. but you should be right, i got a decent percentile and got into my course of 72 atar and i know a mate who done poorly in the stat but still got into arts at uws.

its one of those tests that even if you think you did bad, you could of done pretty well. vise versa. the stressing comes into waiting the 3-4 odd months to get them results back

How did everyone go on yesterdays STAT test? I was a little sleep deprived, so I didn't do the best I could. Here's hoping that I at least get a decent score.
