No it just means you will have the highest (or equal highest) sac scores after scaling. People ranked 2+ can still do better if they score higher than you on the exam.

This question has already been answered on AN and on this thread in particular. Make sure to read the first post of this thread which goes into detail about SAC scaling.

How do you know what rank you are?

How do you know what rank you are?
In a small cohort, you can get a rough estimate if students in your class share scores with each other. Otherwise, people may know their rank by asking the teacher. However, the teacher doesn't always disclose ranks.

Say GA1 is your units 3 and 4 SACs and you're rank 1. Does that mean that your mark for GA1 will come up as A+ even if technically you've scored lower than that (as in, your SAC average is lower than A+ but you're still rank 1)?

not necessarily. Your mark and grade for your sacs will just be correlated to the highest score within your cohort.

If that highest score is within the A+ range your sacs should get an A+, if the highest score is in the B+ range you should get a B+ for your GA1

Oh ok, so is the SAC mark just the grade of the exam in relation to your rank or is it the average of the two?

If I got 85% for my first sac in economics, there is 14 students in our class and I am rank 2, with rank 1 getting 88%, if I am consistent with my sacs 85% or higher for all my sacs and stay rank 2, what are the chances of getting 40+? if I also do alright in exam like 85%+
