Probably a bit late but I got a 42 in accounting and a 44 in Further.

Super stoked with accounting as I was expected a sub 40 because I felt like I bombed the exam, however I feel like I could have definitely done better if I put in more effort into memorising some of the theory instead of making up responses.

However Iím extremely disappointed with my Further result. I know I only dropped 1 mark in exam one as I thought I only dropped 1 in exam 2 as well but clearly not. Iím really curious as to see what I actually did get wrong in Further but I donít think thereís any was to do so because none of my teachers are replying to my emails

If you really want to find out you could order a transcript of your results but you might also be less frustrated with yourself if you don't find out where you went wrong.

As above poster said, the range of an A+ is still pretty large which can affect your study score. For example, I got A+, A, A+ and got a 43. This means that my Exam 2 (and maybe sacs) were a high A+ and thus made up for my A in exam 1 (also note exam 1 is weighted less).
This. I received A, B+, A+ and got a 39 raw which means my GA1 and 2 were likely edging A+ and A respectively or my GA3 was a very high A+.

I'm very late but wanted to post about this somewhere
English B+ C B+ 31
Pretty much what I expected, and I can't complain considering how much I hated and neglected this subject. Really wish I did Englang.
Specialist A+ A+ A 40
Although I would've been lukewarm about a 40 before exams, after a horrendous performance on exam 2 I'm ecstatic to have scraped an A and a 40. I must've done very well on exam 1!
Methods A+ A+ A+ 42
Pretty disappointed about this one. I made stupid calculator mistakes in exam 2 that must've really cost me. Was hoping for like 44-46
Physics A A+ A+ 40
Quite good, considering I got an A for Unit 3. I think our school's SACs were too easy, as I averaged above 90% throughout the year.
Further A+ A+ A+ 43
I thought I dropped one mark on exam 1 and none on exam 2, but I guess not. I also had pretty bad SACs (worse than Specialist lol) so that must've contributed.
ATAR: 95.20
Overall, I regret the decision not to take Englang over Normie English, and not to do a 3/4 in year 11. Ideally I would've done Further in year 11, dedicated much more time to it and possibly scored 47+, and then picking up 3/4 Chemistry or Accounting. Year 10s, even if you haven't done a 1/2, I'd highly recommend taking up a 3/4 in year 11! It could easily be the difference between making it into your course and not cutting it. Having said that, considering my expectations post-exams, I'm very pleased to have exceeded my expectations (between 92-94) and achieved 40+ in all subjects bar English. Have a great day!

Ended up with a 38 for Biology :-\
I had always known I wouldn't score exceptionally well as I really didn't enjoy the subject and lacked any real aptitude in it; nonetheless, I was hoping for some miracle (lol). I did improve over the year which did show on the exam (got A+) compared to my GA1 result (got B) :( . I'm pretty sure I am capable of better results but hey, it is what it is.

If I've learnt anything this year, it's to do subjects that you genuinely enjoy, not because others tell you to do it (my case lol) or scaling. Looking forward to (a hopefully more successful) new year!
