Thanks! Pretty tight for scores above 45, 3.5 marks separating a 45 SS and 100%!

88% for the A+ cut-off isn't too bad.

Just for your interest, I got my SoM today, I got 113/120 for the exam (56.5/60) for a 45 SS.

Assuming you got A+, A+, A+ - what did you get the half-mark on?.. if I got 58~59/60 with A+ SACs, do you know what that could get me?.. would you need to get full marks on the end-of-year exam to get 50?.. or can you lose 1~2 marks on the exam and still get 50?

My half mark, i'm unsure which question, but the half marks are produced because one examiner thinks I should get X marks for a question, but the other examiner thinks I should get Y marks for a question. That's why the total marks are doubled.

I only lost 1.5 SAC marks all year, so I would say 100% is needed on the exam for a 50.

My bad. Yes, that's true.

100% for 50?.. that's hard.

That's what I reckon; if 3.5 marks only gets you a 45.

It's not necessarily the hardest subject content-wise, as you just need to rote-learn information - it's more the fact that there is little margin for error, one or two marks can make a substantial difference to your score in Legal. Legal Studies gives no scaling and in addition, it scales down if you get below 40.

thats brutal... legal might be one of the hardest subjects to guarantee a good score in :(

I tend to agree with that. Ensure you get over 40 and scaling shouldn't affect you.

I actually have a question:

What's the difference between a submission and petition?

I know that they are methods to influence parliament to change the law, though my textbook's unclear on the exact definition.

Thanks to anyone who can answer this!

I'm not 100% sure... but, i think submissions are when the public actually give suggestions, whereas petitions are a collection of signatures showing support for an issue that is sent to government.
So, the difference is submissions are suggestions and petitions are signatures that shows a lot of people agree. So, a submission could just be one person's opinion, but petitions are generally supported by a lot of people... :/ ?
