Atar of 77?

Hi everyone,

As this yearís year 12 students know, practice exams are starting. Iíve been doing well so far but I kinda screwed my practice exams and now Iím getting kinda worried. Iím gonna use my practice exam scores as well as my internal assessment scores to give a score out of 100 and maybe this can help give me some reassurance that I could possiblY still can an atar above 77.

Thanks everyone

Maths: 70 (probably wont count)
English: 75
Biology: 85
Psychology: 85
Music: 80
Legal: 90

So yea Iím looking at marks in the 80ís. Of course my actual exams are gonna be better because I have 3-4 more weeks to study but worst case scenario...letís say these are the final scores.

Hi there,

Can you please share how you calculated your overall score for a subject. Say Maths, English and Bio?

I'm confused as to how to do it exactly, especially with the removal of an internal assessment and all; hence what the weighings are for each internal assessment piece are. I would super duper appreciate this!  ;D ;D
PS: Best of luck for your externals!

Regards,
Fellow 2020 QCE student

Iím not sure how they calculate the scores with the removal of one internal assessment but itís actually quite simple to convert.

For example: legal studies

IA1: 22/25
IA2: 25/25

Now, since the exam is out of 25 and all I have is 47/50, the internal assessments need to be out of 75, a SIMPLIFIED way of converting it to a score out of 75 is

(47/50)x75

47 out of 50 is 0.94, and multiplying that by 75 should give you a converted score.

I know that the qcaa will have a more complex system in place to convert scores, but this is a simple way to convert scores that may give you an estimate.

Donít quote me on this lmao, I have no idea how the qcaa will deal with the removal of an internal assessment, Iím just using this simplified formula to give me an Ďideaí of where I would stand.

As you've indicated QCAA is using a more complicated approach - if you're interested there's info in the top link here
