How does ATAR really work?
« on: January 04, 2017, 02:47:06 pm »
I'm starting VCE this year so I wanted to know how an ATAR and scaling actually works and how you can avoid being cheated by the system. Also about your rankings in your cohort and why that's so important, from my understanding to get an amazing study score (45+) you need to be the top ranked student in your class?

Have you checked out Joseph41's nifty guide on all things VCE? (How VCE Works)

He explains a lot about how scaling works and stuff in his guide. :)
