Probably be dissapointed for a while but then get over it. Then work out what I want to put for my second choice.

I wanna do comm/law at UNSW. Just say I dont get the uai I need (which is a very viable option considering it is 99+) does anyone have any idea whether it will be easier to transfer from bus/law at UTS or commerce (international) at UNSW? Ive heard from some people its easier to transfer within the uni, but if I do bus/law at UTS id've done a bit of law.

I always thought

104+ raw = 100
102 - 103 = 99
100 - 101 = 98
99 - 100 = 97
97 - 98 = 96
94 - 97 = 95
ETC
Hold on, this is what I thought too. What's all this talk of percentages out of 100 and then aligning that? I'm confused! That would constitute an entirely different system of aligning compared to other subjects!

gah, now I want to know; I always assumed raw marks out of 105 were aligned to a mark out of 100. I hope a moderator can explain this or something.

All 2 unit subjects are aligned to a mark out of 100.

Yeah, of course. But in the case of Advanced English, how do they create the aligned marks if the exam is out of 105 raw? People on this thread have suggested different ways to meet this end and I'm confused as to which would be correct.

lol, then what about 4 uni maths, 3 unit maths and 2 unit maths?

I think they have set raw - aligned marks scale

Simple (well, simply said). Each subject aligns differently based on difficulty. BOS forms a cutoff scale with the marks to which each raw mark aligns to.

yeah, I understand this, theoretically. But I have trouble applying it to subjects like Advanced where the maximum raw mark is 105 and the max aligned is 100. Sorry, I lack mathematical logic; I'm a literacy/history buff.

Well it's actually 40% paper 1 and 60% paper two. So that's 100 marks.

Say i got 10/45 and 50/60 (shock horror). I'll not be at 60/105, but rather 58.9/100

82/105 (80%) in english was aligned to 90 in last year's Advanced English.
Any comments on this?
In light of what you've told me, dp, I don't think it's correct.
If 82/105 aligned to 90/100, does that mean the mark out of 100 raw (40% Paper 1 and 60% Paper 2) was less than 80? That can't be right, to get a band 6...

actually <80 is about right for a ban6 cutoff. its about 77-78 each year i'd expect.

77-78%?
or 77/78 raw out of 105?

(once more I apologise for my mathematical ineptitude)
