Most selective high school principals have come to a "gentleman's agreement" to limit the number of Extension 2 maths classes in selective schools. A typical selective high school offers three classes of Extension 2, when almost 4 classes of students wish to study the course. The number who miss out as a result is more than the number who are interested in the course in a normal high school. These students are typically more able than students elsewhere, so it is often a disadvantage to be a student interested in Ext 2 at a selective high school.

I'm curious why this agreement exists?
