Mabye its the average? I dunno, but i know I'd be FUCKING STOKED with 90. Think about that!MarsBarz said:I was expecting 97+ and i just got 90 for French continuers. WTFWTFWTF. A big fuck you bos you assholes.
Scaling will affect the UAIs, but it doesn't affect the marks people received today.kaitoufion said:Some subjects don't have a high scale because the course is either not very relevant to most Uni degrees/courses, or that the knowledge is not compulsory in University.
For example, Maths subjects (apart from General Maths) would always have a high scale because it is relevant and will be very useful to most of the courses (eg. Science, Commerce) when you get into Uni.
Therefore French wouldn't have a very high scale because it is only relevant to B Arts.
It is interesting that you blame some aspect of the system rather than your own expectations.MarsBarz said:I was expecting 97+ and i just got 90 for French continuers. WTFWTFWTF.
Remember that only your two best units of English and your best 8 other units count towards your UAI. If you had a 12 unit course load, then the marks for one of your courses other than English won't be counted towards your UAI.melsc said:Well I got 74% which sucks...its my lowest mark and out of place i hope it doesnt pull down my uai too much...the paper just sucked LOL
Your trials form PART of the assessment mark given to you by your school. Your total assessment mark for the year is forwarded to the BoS by your school. While you assessment ranking will remain the same no matter how your particular school did on the external exams on that subject, your assessment mark will be moderated by the exam results. If you were ranked first for your course, your moderated assessment mark will be the same as the exam mark given to the person who scored best in that course - if your cohort totally tanked on the exams, it can make a huge difference to your moderated assessment marks. It can also make a huge difference if your school (not just your individual teacher, as there's usually more than one class for the same course) marks assessments to a lower standard than the one to which external exams are marked.MarsBarz said:I still don't understand. For trials I got 90/100 raw and my teacher is a HSC marker.
I was pretty confident that I also got at least 85+/100 raw in that exam. How does that just allign to 90/100 HSC mark? I was ranked first in my class and I thought that my class was very strong in the subject. It just doesn't seem right you know. Something fishy must have happened honestly. Maybe it's a clerical error.
