i know thread reviving is bad
but my bro goes to st. francis xavier
and it says in that list that over 2000 sat for the exams in that school...
as far as i know theres been only about 500 year 12 students last year.. and over 200 DA doesnt make sense...
is that info wrong?

2000+ =/= not the number of people

2000+ = number of exams sat at the school

I can't really tell which St Paul's College is mine :S

All I know is that it would count as a private school rather than a government one. Can anyone tell which one is St Paul's College located in Kempsey...?

yes even though ur school may not be ranked well he can still get a high uai. But there is a little percentage of people at his school who get an ATAR of 95+. Example if you went to caringbah high school ranked 20 there are much more people who get 95+. Tell him to go to a better school as he will become academically better as he gets more competition from his peers. So ye hope that helped. :santa:

It's possible to get med from any school - so long as you're ready to put in the hard yards with regards to ATAR + UMAT.

scaling isnt the issue. I'll try to quickly explain...
you're 'scaled' school mark comes purely from your rank, which then chooses the respective HSC mark which came from your school.. e.g. you are 1st in X2 maths and the top mark in the HSC from your school for X2 maths is 98, though you have a bad day and get 90. Your scaled SCHOOL mark (50%) is 98 and your HSC mark is 90, so altogether thats 94 (averaged)

Basically, if you have a GOOD RANK then its ok, just means that if you go to a shit school (no offence intended) then it is imperative to get a good rank (preferably like top 3) in order to get that good school mark.

The above info is what I understand of how it works.. makes me more relaxed because going to selective means most people do well in their HSC so its ok... not that im failing any subjects (wait for trial results.. :S)

either way, good luck with trials.. gun it and you're sweet!

My school last year was in the low 500s but i still think it's the best school I could ever wish for ^_^.

Although it's generally in the low-mid 200s.... so I guess it's not really a reflection of the school's past HSC academic achievement.
