Half Yearly Marks and UAI calculators
School Matters: Posted 12-5-08 Deadline - No Deadline
There are several websites that claim to be able to guesstimate your UAI if you type in your subjects and marks. Please do not rely on these for several reasons. They are based on final HSC marks in each subject and not marks for possibly 2 or 3 assessment tasks which have not included a 3 hour exam. The assessment tasks may be research, oral or visual ones which, while contributing to your overall assessment mark which is 50% of your HSC mark in a subject, does not indicate the mark you will receive in the HSC. The UAIs calcuated at this stage are not for the 2008 cohort and may either give you inflated marks (which means you may stop trying very hard) or very low marks which may mean you give up trying. Please take this advice into consideration and see me if you have any questions about this.
