Deakin University Study Score Calculator

I was wondering if anyone really knew how accurate the Deakin University study score calculator was. It doesn't seem the most stable or reliable ahah.

Here's the link: https://atar-calculator.deakin.edu.au/vce-study-score-calculator/

Thx

Having used it (but not actually tried it out because obviously I haven't finished my subjects yet, so dunno if it's accurate) I think it's not accurate, at least not this year. This year, so many unknowns, so I think probably don't trust it one little scrap. Maybe as a very general guide, but not the be-all and end-all, if you know what I mean.

I tried the Deakin calculator and to me the VTAC scaling part looks fine, the exam score part looks fine, but the missing part is that it makes no effort to moderate SAC scores. An 80% SAC score can mean a completely different thing in two different schools, depending on the difficulty of the SAC and the cohort of students. That is the whole reason VCAA uses a SAC moderation process.
