Is a 93+ atar still possible?

I felt demotivated when I got my chem results back; two assesments and I get 50%. I'm just wondering if a 93 ATAR is still achievable.
My results are:
English: 77 (completed last year)
Business: 80 (completed last year)
2 unit maths: 85 (completed last year)
3 unit maths: 70 (completed last year, repeating this year, don't know how I will go)
4 unit maths: 76% in the first assessment
Chemistry: 50% in both assessments
Physics: Doing it this year, I seem to do better in that subject (got 90% in a topic test for prelims, doing the HSC course compressed)
I'm in a bewildered and petrified state; any advice, people?

Hey,  I went through VCE rather than HSC but I got not-great scores on some of my assignments (not much over 50%) and I achieved a 98 ATAR.

I don't know the mechanics of HSC & won't do a score prediction on you but I do know that the important thing here is that you learn from it and keep trying.

This is something to grow from,  not something to be trapped in :)

Looking at your other units, chemistry probably wont count for you. Now considering your other subjects are good scaling especially 4u maths I would say 93 atar is still definitely possible. Right now you want to play to your strengths. If your really confident in your other subjects over chemistry, I would say focus your other subjects over chem. People advised me not to do this for my HSC but I did and it paid off :) Also you can't afford another stuff up so work hard on keeping your Physics mark up there and work to improve in 4u.

Ok, glad the 93 atar is still possible; thanks guys! :)
