    90 internal 95 external vs 93 internal 93 external for ATAR

    Is ATAR calculated by the raw external marks solely, without your school assessment (internal) marks? I did an accelerated course for geography with 90 aligned external and 95 internal with 93 being the final HSC mark. Using the ATAR calculators, 93 is pretty good with an atar equivalent of...

Also our school is nowhere near the top 100 schools. In some subjects where there a a higher amount of students (CAFS, design and...
