Good internal ranks with bad external performance?
« on: October 01, 2019, 02:03:14 pm »
Hey everyone,
I've done surprisingly well overall at school, but I feel like my performance was really down to flukes and good luck, and that my ranks are an inflated representation of my academic ability. For reference, here are my ranks (my school ranks around the 30s usually)

English Std: 2/30
Maths Ext 1: top5/99
Maths Ext 2: 1/52
Economics: 5/45
Society and Culture: 2/11
Studies of Religion I: 1/6

Will this be seen as an anomaly and be corrected? Or will the marks balance out? I'd also feel bad if my poor HSC marks drag someone elses ATAR down. I'm literally so confused, but I really can't see myself doing well at all in the external HSC (I think I'm on track for band 4-5 for most non-maths subjects, but school data says otherwise).

Any help much appreciated, but damn, this ATAR system is confusing af.
HSC 2019
ENG (Std) 89 | MX1 98 | MX2 99| ECO 89 | S+C 94 | SOR 1 44 | ATAR: 99
