what sort of exam score are you looking at? can't say much just based on sacs.

Hopefully an 80%+ for the exam

Based on last years exam 80% is a really good exam score (mid-A+) so yeah with those scores it is likely to get 40+

Can someone possibly predict my score for the below,

Unit 3 average 87%
Unit 4 average hopefully also 85%
Exam: 85%-90%
Rank 1-5 in a relatively strong cohort of around 75 students (we had 50s and high 40s last year)

Economics:
Unit 3 average 87%
Unit 4 average hopefully 85%
Exam: 85%-90%
Rank 1-3 in a small cohort of 14 students

Thanks!

For study score prediction what is a “strong” cohort? How do you know the sacs will scale up? For example I go to a school whose median study score is 33 and has floated between 60-80th school in vic in the past few years. Although now it’s a bit higher than that. What would you (hypothetically) say about this?

I would say your cohort is likely to be well above average. However, the strength of the cohort can't really be based upon the school on it's own as the strength would differ for every subject. Although, the school strength is usually a good predictor of a cohort strength.

You can never be certain whether your sacs will scale up. It depends on the raw scores of the sacs for your cohort and your cohorts performance on the exam. In the instance, you have a so-called "strong" cohort with teacher's making easy sacs and a lot of people scoring high 90s and 100's it is possible sacs could scale down for some.

Hi! I was very similar pre-exam with an exam score in the low 80s and ended up with a 42 (although my cohort was quite strong so it hardly scaled down).

Well i don't know about ranking but for every subject other than environmental science all have a relatively strong cohort but enviro has a medium cohort

Out of curiosity - I'm near the top of a relatively strong Texts and Traditions cohort, with an average of ~85% at the moment. Would it be hypothetically possible for me to get a 50 in this subject if I somehow managed to pick up my game drastically?

I’ve received my final U3 SAC for english and my overall average is only 78% this is in a moderate to week cohort and I am above the average but not by much.

If I average 85% in unit 4 (only worth 20%) and get 45/60 on the exam is a 40 STILL possible?

yeah I think it is still possible but a 40 from a 45/60 exam score would need your sacs to scale up a bit

What about 48-50/60 assuming sacs don’t scale.

Also Because it’s just a ranking and I am ranked nth. What if the nth exam score is much lower than my 78% does that mean I can end up getting much lower than the letter grade ‘A’ this usually is?
