##### VCE Biology exam mark for a 40 study score

Hey team,

Just wondering what would be the exam mark /120 required for a 40 study score in 2019 VCE Biology. Assuming top 30% in SACs in a strong cohort of about 70. Of course I understand that this is just an estimation, but I am just interested as I move toward the exam for something to aim for. Thank you.

there is no way to predict accurately for 2019 without seeing the actual exam but you can look at the grade distributiosn of 2017-18. Basically, a A+ on the exam is the equivalent of getting a 40+ score given your sacs are up to the same 40+ standard.

We explain in the FAQs how we made the graphics. Given the data available, it's the most accurate we can get.

Just eyeballing the distributions they seem pretty good although like with most models they break at the extremes (top and bottom end).
I think most of the models say 100% is needed for 50 which is definitely not true for all subjects and probably isn't true for most.  E.g. Biology getting low/mid-90s could very well be a 50 in some years.

The most accurate thing for predicting study scores is always going to be finding out the exact scores someone got in a previous year for a certain study score and comparing it to your own. This takes into account the difference in the difficulty of the exams since the distribution won't be the same for every exam.
