Doing bad on sac, but getting A+ on exam?

So I just had my sac today, but so far I think I screwed up a few questions. Although my grades have not come out yet, I want to know what if I did bad in it and went on to getting great scores on the exam?

Hi Stormbreaker-X. I see you around the Vic technical score discussion section a lot. Don't fret about the way VCAA calculates things! They have their own way of doing things, and it's our job to try the best we can. Don't get caught up in numbers too much, because they're not an accurate depiction most of the time, and wastes so much time thinking about it. In year 11 I made the decision to abandon the number game completely and just try my best (well not completely - there are still some things that are good to know and keep in mind).

If we speak practically here, how can you do 'badly' in SACs and get A+ on the exam? You would've gone through some magical transformational to go from bad SACs to a very good exam score. It's not impossible, but it's highly unlikely. And to answer your question frankly, nobody knows. This depends on your ranking and your school, the actual subject itself and how the entire cohort goes on the exam - these factors are all key players in the calculation of your study score. If you 'screwed up a few questions', it doesn't mean you did bad. SACs are a learning opportunity before the big exam, and that's how you should be looking at it to maximise your exam score. Make mistakes on your SACs so you don't make them on the exam.

I know I didn't answer your question with a direct answer, but it's the best anyone can do because we don't really know the way VCAA calculates study scores, and we can't guess based off the information you have given.

Try your best, work hard, and things will definitely pay off in the end. Good luck with VCE.
