  1. To all of those in the ACT or NSW in Australia, I would just like to voice by discontent with the new ATAR (previously UAI) conversion for 2009. With the new ranking system the marks of everyone who is doing the HSC in 2009 will be scaled UP by between 6 and 0.05 points compared to those recieved in previous years. The marks of those who are doing the IB however, are not being changed from the previous conversion to the old UAI. So, if a HSC student achieves a mark that was previously a 68.95 as a UAI, this year they will recieving an ATAR of 71.20 instead. If an IB kid however, scores a 24 wich was also previously a 68.95 as a UAI, they will still be getting a 68.95 as an ATAR rank in 2009. Fair?? I think not.

    mmm, maybe, but you have to have knowledge issues within the prescribed title. i wasn't sure whether something like this is the right sort of thing -> 'cant here be multiple correct explanations on the same event?'

    Remarking exams

    heyhey, yeah deffinatly go for it! Especially seeming that you're so close. It is true that they can bump you down as well as up, but even if you do get bumbed down a mark or two, you'll probably still stay at a band 6 because you are so close to a 7. Make sense? Good Luck! -Soph x

    The key to getting a 7 in History

    Know lots of quotes from lots of different WELL KNOWN hisotians. Also have a bunch of primary evidence you can chuck in. Make a quote bank for each topic and memorise as many as possible so you can make sure you've got it all covered.
