Methods sac affect study score?
« on: August 25, 2021, 07:18:26 pm »
Hi, I just received my first methods sac for unit 4 and I did so much worse than I thought. Got a mark below average.

Am extremely disappointed because I have always been strong in methods and was aiming for at least 40 study score
My cohort is not that strong too and my teachers say our school's methods sac dont scale up ( they usually stay the same)
I left a 6 marks modelling question blank, but we had two components and I thought I did alright for component 1 and other questions in component 2, was confident I could secure a 75.

Wanting to hear some stories from seniors about their sac experience following up to their atar

Hey there!

The SAC, at the end of the day, is only worth around 10% of your study score. But my tip is that you shouldn't focus on the the 10% you did "mess up", instead focus on everything left which you can ace. Reflect from the mistakes you made, and then move on to focus on preparing as well as you can for the exam. Luckily, Methods is a very exam oriented subject, and especially in another COVID disrupted year, it will probably be worth even more than usual.

Best of luck!
