Marks out of 10 correspond to what study score?

If someone was to get 6/10 on all three essays on the final exam, what study score range would they be looking at? What about all three at 7/10, or all at 8/10? Sorry to contribute to all the study score posts, and thanks :)

2% of students will get a score on or above 45
9% of students will get a score on or above 40
26% of students will get a score on or above 35
53% of students will get a score on or above 30
78% of students will get a score on or above 25
93% of students will get a score on or above 20

Score range and cumulative % that get that score or higher:

A+ (46-60) 8.3%
A (41-45) 20.2%
B+ (37-40) 34.9%
B (33-36) 52.7 %
C+ (29-32) 70.3%
C (25-28) 83.6%
D+ (20-24) 93.3%

Average score across the 3 essays:
A+  7.6-10
A   6.8-7.5
B+  6.1-6.6
B   5.5-6
C+  4.8-5.3
C   4.1-4.6
D+  3.3-4

This is about as close as you can get to predicting what scores are needed for each study score. Flaws being this is only using last years cutoffs (they change a bit every year) and that it doesn't take into account SAC rankings. Meaning this is only true if your GA1 and GA2 scores put you at the same % in the cohort as your exam score...and if you did english last year.

You can use this info to work out approx study scores, e.g. if you got a 6.0 average on each essay, that would give you a B which would put you in the top 52.7% of the cohort, which would put your score in the 30-35 range.

Depends on a few things, including ranking in the cohort. Any scores etc suggested to you would be rough and potentially inaccurate.
I don't think it's a wise idea to be trying to play the numbers game. Just focus on doing your best and let the rest work itself out. Given it's nearly the end you won't be able to do much now  to change your rank, so the focus now should just be smashing the exam.

Just roughly I would probably say the following

10/10 - 50
9/10 - 45-48
8/10 - 42
7/10 - 37
6/10 - 32

Again very rough estimates :)
PF's post would probably good for you to try to work out yourself roughly what you may need

Thanks so much, everyone. Phoenixxfire that is super useful, I can't believe I didn't think to look at the grad distributions - thank you! And yeah, I'm trying my best not to play the numbers game, just want to make sure I'm at least on track to get the score I need.
