I reckon band 5 will be about 58, Band 6 will be about 75. Was probably the hardest since 2010 imo.

Yeah. I think band 6 cut off might be 70-75% raw.

Seems like the BOS have gone pretty anti-rote this year. I think the cut-off might be 74 raw for a band 6.

Yeah it's been good. Maths, Chem and Physics rote learners would have really struggled, which is how it should be.

A state rank, lol.... No but srs, 90 is much harder to get than you think, if you're answers don't fit the criteria they're gunna come down pretty hard on you! Well done if you actually did tho, I'll be lucky to scrape a 60 from my last night cram

As in just memorizing the syllabus instead of actually understanding the concepts.

BOS are on crack this year chem, 2 unit maths and physics were hardest ones out (in a while, and maths was defs harder than last years piss easy paper)
but having said that, imo cut off for band 6 will be around 75 (max will be 77 for sure)
band 5 (54-57)

btw my raw marks is lowest 65 max 75 (and I've accounted for my mistakes or the shit i didnt know.... photocell and the harsh marking lols :/ )

I thought chem wasn't too bad in comparison to other years, but definitely agree on 2U.. thank fuck thats not counting towards my HSC

Even the 2010 one didn't have a B6 cut off of 75, and this one wasn't as hard. I reckon mid-80s (hopefully that's what I get as well, fingers crossed)

B6 cutoff for physics mid-80s? -.-
Bio isn't even that high.

Sorry, I just reread the database in 2010 75 was the B6 cut-off. So it'll probs be 80-81 this year.

My guess is ~77
