Maybe your friend has equity like if her parents have a low-income earners health care card (nothing against it, I did as well).

You did better than her :/
If youíre in the same school then I donít know.
But if youíre in different schools then thatís the answer

Edit: It may be that she got higher marks than you. Say, in reading you got 43/50 and she got 50/50.

depends on the number of people in your cohort compared to her cohort and the number of people who got accepted from your cohort compared to yours. Remember only a maximum of 5% of a school's cohort can be accepted. Bad luck, but maybe you can try out next year?

2 Superior is not always better than 1 Superior + 1 Above Average .
1% is Sup,11% is also sup ,the difference is big.

PeachyPink, itís because there are less spots for macrob, and tougher competition

persuasive: A - totally failed this
creative: AA - I didn't finish it
I got MHS first round. I was really suprised though. I go to a really competitive school and 2 of my friends got in with 6 superiors and one got 5 and an AA.

I honestly don't know how I got in???

Verbal reasoning-Above Average
Numerical reasoning-Superior
Reading Comprehehsion-Above Average
Mathmatics-Above Average
Persuasive Expression-Average (Completely effed this one up...)
Creative Expression-High Average

Maybe I was like 1 question away from getting Superiors for my above averages lolol but idk

edit: Just in case anyone's wondering, I got a first round offer at Suzanne then a PD to Macrob and a late offer at Macrob

Congrats on getting the offer. How does the late offer thing work ?

The scores seem to vary a lot and that is very surprising.
I just have a few questions :)
1. I go to a grammar school so how much superiors approx do i need to get a offer into Suzanne Cory or MacRob (around 15-20 ppl trying out aprox. I think)
2. If you get 2 superiors for maybe reading comprehension and numerical reasoning, HA for 2 and then 1 AA or A , does that stand a good chance? Or maybe 1 superior, 3 HA and 1 A?
3. Does anyone that got in last year have any tips for me? Basically tricks and how to not stress lol cause I would probably stress out heaps on the day.

Thanks

The more competitive the school, the harder it is to get a spot.
Usually private schools are regarded as 'good' schools, so the judges who mark your tests look at how good your school is, and will determine if you get a place.

For reference, I had a good friend who went to Scotch College, and he got 5 superiors but didn't get in, whereas I went to a pretty low scoring school and I got in with only 1 superior (it was also competitive).

My tip for exam day is to not always look at the clock. You're wasting a bit of time every time you look. I'd probably look every 10 questions done to see where I'm heading to.

Would I get into MHS with these scores:
Maths: Sup
Writing: Sup
Verbal Reasoning: HA
Numerical Reasoning: AA
Reading Comprehension: A

These aren't really my scores, I was just wondering whether I would get in, especially with the new writing system.
If you are wondering, I go to a grammar school and I think like 5-8 people are participating.
