    Question What's a good rank?

    I go to a mid 60's ranked school and we've usually had like 4-5 people get 99+ ATARs every year. I was wondering, what would generally be a good rank to maintain in these following subjects in order to get an ATAR above 95?

    Subjects are:

    English Advanced (around 110 people)
    Chemistry (around 50 people)
    Physics (around 55 people)
    Extension 1 Mathematics (around 60 people)
    Mathematics Advanced (around 150 people)
    Economics (around 40 people)

    Whilst I know it's hard to give a specific answer to this question and it's very early on in Year 12, we've received our ranks based on our Term 1 assessments and I don't know what to think of it.

    It's mainly because exams have somehow been made extremely difficult this year for the Sciences and 3U Maths compared to papers we have done from our school in the past (2018 papers have been by far the hardest exams in our school). Some exams this year (Maths especially) have been harder than of top tier schools (based on past papers we have done), which surprised the most of us. Due to these hard exams, the overall cohort has been struggling to achieve high marks in the Sciences and 3U Maths (with some outliers doing very well).

    So, what rank do you guys think would be good?
