    Schools

    hi,
    I currently attend Parramatta High School and recently made it into Girraween High. My current school is ranked at approx 100 and Girraween is a consistent top 20 school.
    I’m having second thoughts about moving because of the fact that I rank top 3 in all my subjects at Parramatta and I feel like I’d rank around the 50th place in Girra. Would moving and dropping down the ranks this much be better since it is a better school or am I better off staying at Parramatta where I can rank top 3

    Probably move because it won't change how you do in the HSC. Your top 3 may be equivalent to top 50 at Girraween but the highest atar in your school may be 99 and there that might be the 30th highest atar etc.

    For example, James Ruse has median ATAR of like 99.1 so you might think rank 100 there is bad, but it's still like 99 atar.

    I would move if I were you because you'd be more motivated to study as it's more competitive, plus if you end up ranking high you have lots of fellow classmates to rescue you in the external exam while in your school you might only have yourself or a couple people to do really well.

    Go to giraween. Being a fifty rank there might be better than a third in current school (all the ranks stuff is balanced with how many band sixes they get). Also, being in a high ranked school will provide you more competition since the students are smarter (might also help since you will be able to study with friends who understand the content to a higher degree) and thus means you will be pushed out of your current limit at parramatta and therefore probably will improve overall as the exams are harder and student quality is better. Saying that even being at like a 100 ranked school doesn't mean your going to get a shitty ATAR (all depends on that individual student i.e. if someone is going to get a 99 ATAR in a 100 ranked school they are obviously smart and would still perform generally well at a higher ranked school)
