Hey. I cant talk for health an psych but for further it depends. If your SACS are considered very hard, then getting 70-80% is acceptable as long as you maintain a high consistent rank and scores, you can get 40+ (I would suggest aiming higher) If the SACS are considered pretty easy and you don't think you've being good, you really have to ace the remaining sacs and exams to have the possibility of getting 40+. I'm not so sure about English, but I'm averaging 80% and doubtful whether I will get 40+ for the subject. Again it depends on the SAC. Good luck on your subjects man.

You won't get 50, but if you work really hard and manage to do well on your remaining SACs and the exam then you'll probably be able to get above 30. As Seno said, if your SACs are harder than VCAA standards then it will be easier to do, if your SACs are easier than VCAA standards than it will be harder to do.

Either way, do the best you can do. If you give up now you definitely won't get above 30 so please keep trying. There's plenty of resources around the forums that might help you (I can link some of them if you like) and you're welcome to ask any subject-specific questions you have in the relevant areas.
