I'm so happy the methods exam is over - weakest exam down!

Does anyone know what kind of study score I'm looking at:
SACs: 62% (teacher says these usually go up by one grade if this helps)
Exam 1: 18/40 (butchered this exam)
Exam 2: 50/80
Low 30s.

Sorry I know everyone’s doing it but thoughts?

SAC average: 83% (Rank: top 2 in a small class)
Exam 1: 30/40
Exam 2: 50/80
(give or take)

Btw if it helps, our SACs usually scale down.
Mid 30s.

hi!
sacs: 93% average cohort
exam 1: 33
exam 2: 70-75
Low 40s.

Sacs 88% in above average cohort of 120
Exam 1 = 34/40
Exam 2 = 63/80
39-42

Prediction for my score? Hoping to get above 40 raw but I choked on exam 1

Sacs: 88% in average cohort
Exam 1: 31/40
Exam 2: 72/80

Thanks!
It's possible you'll get a 40, but it will depend on how your sacs scale. Otherwise high 30s.

Hi, New to VCE

Curious to know

Hi, New to VCE

Curious to know
A 90% at one school isn't the same as A 90% at another schools because different schools do different sacs. To make sac marks fair between schools, vcaa disregards the percentage you get on your sacs and instead uses your rank within your cohort and your cohorts exam performance to scale your sac.

Eg. If one cohort of 4 people gets exam scores of 90%, 80%, 70%, and 60% and another cohort of 4 people gets exam scores of 70%, 50%, 30%, and 10% then a person who is rank 2 in the first cohort will have their sacs scale to around 80% whereas a person who is rank 2 in the second cohort will have their sacs scale to around 50% - and this will be true regardless of whether they have the same % mark on their sacs. (The difference isn't usually that drastic though because cohorts are larger than 4 people). There's more on how it works here under the heading "sac moderation"

SACS: 97 (above avg cohort)

Exam 1: 38-39/40
Exam 2: 73-76/80
44-47

Yep, you should definitely be fine with that, regardless of how your sacs get moderated. Just based off the exams and last years grade distribution, you could get around a 35 (although your sacs could alter that).

So I got 86% in a cohort of more than 100. If I get 36/40 in exam 1 and 65-66/80 in exam 2, what do you reckon my study will be?

To give some context, last year I got 37/40 in exam 1 and 78/80 in exam 2 and still got a 49. So I think you can afford to drop a fair few marks across both exams and still get a score in the high 40s.

Probably a borderline 40

Can someone predict for my study score?
SAC: 67% in a average cohort
Exam 1: 30-31/40
Exam 2: 64-66/80
Is it still possible for mid 30?

Should be fine for mid-30s. Your exam 1 is a little low but the exam 2 should be a high A/low A+.
