    Though if people really are interested in getting something of a rough estimate, this is a diverting method of self-assessment.

    Essay
    Exceptional- 130-140
    Very good- 120-130
    Good-110-120
    Average- 100-110
    Below average- 90-100
    Poor- 80-90
    Dreadful- 70-80
    Troll :P - 60-70
    Disaster- < 60

    GS 1-4
    Exceptional- 40% of question's maximum marks (QMM)
    Good- 30% of QMM
    Anything else- 0

    Optional
    Exceptional- 50% of QMM
    Good- 40% of QMM
    Average-30% of QMM
    Anything else- 0

    Calculate total, and maintain a margin of error of 10%.

    by your estimate bro , no one can get above 100 in any gs paper. then how come many got above 100 in gs paper 4.

  • @shekhar2013- there are always outliers. In any case, most methods of marks estimation last year tended to inflate actual scores. There may be 100 plus scores in GS4, but those can be offset by a sub-50 score in, say, GS2.
    I agree this method may not be perfect, but I believe it to be more indicative that others.

    Not sure. Paper 1 was vague, Paper 2 was decent. What about you?
