Anyone know the grading scheme of UNSW?

ie, For the science paper, DD1 has a raw score of 19/30 but on her certificate, she was awarded a Distinction. Eh.. .the marks and the grade don really tie :?

Appreciate any advise. Thks :please:


it is possible for a 19/30 to be "Distinction" because 89% participants score below 19/30..... :lol:


May i know 19/30 for science is for which level?

Based on last year and this year, DD got back the complete set. Question paper, mark sheet (with analysis) and the certificate.

A High Distinction in UNSW is a plus for DSAs but depending on the school you apply for, the importance of it will vary. For eg at NUSH, a lot of the students applying there would have High Distinctions in Math and Science so it's like de rigeur. At some other schools, a High Distinction would be looked upon more favorably at DSA. Someone I know who had High Distinctions in Science, Math and English saw the interviewers pointing at her UNSW certs and nodding her head during the interview.

Hi jtoh, based on the above, can I confirm that there will be no medal or award for High Distinction? Only the top scorer for each subject per cohort will receive a medal ie only 3 per level?

Oh dear, I've just mislead DD into thinking she'll get an award for her English. :slapshead: :slapshead:

:thankyou: Just4Fun. Yes DD is in Pri 4 this year.
I'm surprised she received the English results so early because for Science, they got back almost 3 weeks after most of you received the results.
