Sounds like something weird is going on here. Do teachers like small advanced classes or something??I was pretty happy with my mark of 70. My prelim english teacher (who told me to drop) was this old lady and it was her first year in teaching and I'm pretty sure she didnt get her education here so it would make sense for her to not know. But the other teacher has done HSC here and been teaching english for long time and she was the one who told me you need 75+ or else ur mark will be brought down so she also recommended standard.
Maybe someone here can explain to you how HSC marks are aligned.
Check out the raw marks vs aligned for both subjects (there's not a lot of standard marks to go from tho, but gives you an idea)
Talk to your teacher when school goes back, ask her why she's recommending standard AND tell her you're willing to learn and want to be in advanced, AND ask her how to improve.
