    school rank is 30-40

    subjects are:

    4u math
    eng adv
    phys
    bio
    chem

    my current ranks estimate
    3u and 4u - 70/160
    eng- 30/130
    phys- 25/80
    chem- 30/90
    bio- 15/90

    It really depends on how many b6s your school gets every year

    Personally I think

    3U and 4U-30/160
    Eng-15/130
    Phys-15/80
    Chem-15/90
    Bio-10/90

    Again dont follow me completely I am usually wrong about this stuff 99% of the time

    Re: ranks needed for 98+ ATAR

    I got a 98.95, and my school was ranked 26th this year.

    I was ranked:
    English advanced-2/21
    Biology-2/11
    Chemistry-2/6
    Geo- 1/6
    2 unit- 8/13
    3 unit-3/8

    Hope that helps!

    Re: ranks needed for 98+ ATAR

    To be honest, it really depends on the school and your cohort.

    A decent (but often not very accurate) method of knowing what ranks are needed to get a 98+ ATAR is knowing how many people got a Band 6 in your subjects last year.

    For example, if 10 people got a Band 6 for Chemistry last year, then you'll want to aim for around top 10 in terms of rank.

    Given that your subjects scale relatively high (I did the exact same subjects as you), getting a Band 6 in all your subjects should land you a 98+ ATAR, provided that there are a few high Band 6s in your results.

    For me personally, I had to aim for around top 5 for all my subjects since my cohort is quite small and we aren't a selective school, although we are in the top 100.
