    OP's school is ranked 125 and had 64 Advanced English band 6's in a single year???? That's absolutely insane. I would have thought that would be as likely as James Ruse ranking 2nd.

    Yeah >99. How high depends on whether you get mid or low b6 in your other subjects (not maths). Keep up the good work! Note 99 is a bit conservative. Btw what r you planing on doing @ uni after? Cause if you're the dux of your school both unsw and usyd have concession schemes

    There is a difference between conservative and inaccurate. Ehh Anyways everyone is free to give any estimate they feel like, but its upon the receiver to depict the reliable ones.
