I'm doing methods 3/4 nxt yr but im aiming for a 50 too is that hard to get?

Top 0.02% of the state, no biggie lol..

There's a whole 16 people out of 8000 that get that score

it's a bit more than that, about 40 people got 50 in methods (3/4 cas and normal combined) so depends which methods your doing, i think cas is more popular this year

That would be about right. The approximately 8000 students I had was from the 2009 grade distribution for the non-CAS methods. Since the non-CAS course has been removed, all students will now be doing CAS methods.

Last year 8887 students did non-CAS methods while 7189 students did the CAS methods which means about 16000 students will be doing CAS methods this year?

0.02% of this cohort would be about 32 students.

16/8000 or 32/16000...same odds
