    how do you know if you have rank 1 for a subject?

    so i finished my trials and came first for maths by two marks but im unsure if i will get assessment rank 1 for maths. for the term 1 test which weighed 15% i came first too but for the others i came 5th. my thinking was that i have topped the grade for 55% of assessments (40% from trials and 15% from term 1 test) so that means i have achieved rank 1 but people have said that its not correct. Is there a way to find out if you have achieved rank 1 for a subject and was my thinking correct?

    You'll receive online ranks through students online which will tell you your ranks in each subject if you are prepared to wait a bit.

    Doesn’t your school give First In course awards out or something? Then you’ll know

    Can you contact the Head of Mathematics at your school? They will probably give you your rank

    no your thinking is not correct. It is likely you are rank 1 but it depends how close the other people were to you.
    It is done by overall mark. If you overall mark is the highest than you would be rank 1.

    For instance you may have gotten rank 1 in one assessment, and the trial. But the guy who got rank 2 might only be 0.5 mark lower than you in both, and rank 1 in the other asssessments.

    e.g.
    A: might have got 99% in trials and term 1 test. But 94% in the rest (53.9 + 42.3 = 96.2% overall)
    B: might have got 96% in trials and term 1 test. But 98% in other assessments (52.8 + 44.1 = 96.9% overall)

    So even though Person A got a higher rank than person B in more assessments, because person B's overall weighted average is better, so he would be rank 1. (It will depend on the spacing of ranks in the assessments)

    my school does not tell you if you have achieved rank 1 until after hsc. and the student i am refering to as not gotten rank 1 for any assessment in the whole year, as there are assessments i have gotten rank 1 in 2 a girl got rank 1 in 1 but she bombed trials and same for another girl who topped another assessment. this student has never gotten rank 1 but he has been pretty consistent throughout the year

    so i these were the marks i received:
    weighing 15% 48/50 rank 1
    weighing 25% 89/100 rank 4
    weighing 20% 44/50 rank 4
    weighing 40% 91/100 rank 1
    the marks he received were as follows
    weighing 15% 47/50 rank 2

    multiply weighting by mark(out of 100) for each btw; and add together, whoever has the highest score comes first:
    96*15+89*25+88*20+91*40=9065
    94*15+93*25+90*20+89*40=9095
    that person came first im petty sure (if everything is correct); u guys are separated by a weighted average of 0.3%.
