    I think he did get 497.4, coz in the UAC pamphlet that I just got in the mail a few days ago, it said that the aggregates for 100.00 ranged from 483.0 to 497.4. I'm pretty sure Laurie would've been the one who got that.

    It is hardly possible for anyone to score above 490 as an aggregate at the moment. In order to achieve an aggregate of 490+, a student must top the state or come close to topping the state (i.e. top 5) in nearly all their 10 units provided that the subjects are not capped. I highly doubt anyone would ever achieve this.
    See the statistics from 2001-2004 for yourself:

    Go check the state rankings for last year for Laurie Field, and count all the units he was ranked in.

    its far far far harder to get like 99 for eng adv than 50 for ext 1 and 2 english, even thoiugh they will both = 100 scaled contribution to aggregate. so its actually quite possible to get 500

    we need another laurie who instead of doing eng adv, does ext 1 and 2 english. this will then be achieved

    JUAIseek approximates the aggregates with a polynomial so you can't use it to get exact values.

    If it matches the values on the tables exactly then the other values would be off by more.

    It says your from the shire.
    Best school in shire is caringbah followed by inaburra and then followed by De La Salle.
    I think caringbah is the only selective in the school in the shire and they certainly don't get 3 ppl over 100 each year.

    No doubt Henderson has the highest aggregate, after topping 4u maths, latin, 3u latin, classical Greek and 3u classical Greek.

    As for Laurie, I would presume he came second, although there was someone who did quite well around 2000. Pity Laurie didn't top maths. Otherwise we would be having a hard time distinguishing him and Henderson.

    Jason Hui 88' Second?

    sorry AI but you're way off on this one. if 485 was the maximum since the new hsc then using sam no one got 100 uai. THe minimum is about 486.6 aggregate points for 100 uai using sam .

    Summary:

    Jason Hui, Doctor, 496. He's probably second behind that Laurie guy.

    I forgot the site and so here's the article

    HSC stars 10 years on
    (Edited Extract From "Sunday Life" January '99)

    Jason Hui, 27, of Sydney Boys' High, came first in the state in 1988 with 496. He studied 4U maths, 2U English, 2U physics, 2U chemistry and 2U economics and is a doctor.

    When he arrived in Australia at 13, Hui's English skills were poor. He started year 9 and could barely understand the teacher.

    His parents had sent him and his older brother out from Hong Kong to study. They boarded with an Australian family throughout high school and their parents visited when they could. "If you come from overseas with the aim of studying and going to university, you tend to be very focused and less distracted by other things. As the HSC drew closer I just studied whenever there was time. But I loved maths, physics and chemistry so it wasn't a burden.

    "Working hard was the norm in my school. It was a fantastic year with a lot of very bright people—there were two 4-Unit maths classes. I think we all pushed each other along and there was a lot of competition. I’m sure I wouldn’t have done as well at another school."

    At the time, Hui was tossing up between medicine and engineering and says he probably chose medicine "because there were a lot of engineers in my family and I wanted to do something different." Looking back, it was the right choice. I can’t imagine myself in anything different.

    "The amazing thing about medicine is you never stop learning. At each stage you encounter new situations and you have new and difficult decisions to make. That’s what makes it so interesting."

    Hui did six years at Sydney University, sharing the University Medal with Mark Gorbatov (88)—a former Sydney Boys’ classmate who came second in the HSC in the same year with 495.

    "When I did the HSC, people said it was the hardest exam you ever did. At Uni, you quickly realise that is totally untrue. Exams get harder as you become more advanced and studying and working at the same time is much harder. To work 9-10 hours a day and then get home, have dinner and spend three or four more hours studying is very difficult."

    496 is nowhere near high enough to get the top prize...
    The UAI scaling documents in the last few years tell of aggregates higher than that.

    I admit that there probably have been aggregates higher than 485. Happy now?
    However, I must tell you that there is no fixed minimum aggregate for scoring a UAI of 100.00. People have scored 100.00 every year even with lower aggregates than those in previous years. Remember a UAI is a rank, not a mark. I think it was the top 0.025% of the School Certificate state candidature from the aggregate scores that equate to a UAI of 100.00 every year.
