Haha! Sorry! I don't think second is terrible by any means, I was just wondering how a weak cohort would affect the second rank. I don't think it should make that much of a difference.man, this makes coming second look really painful. is the only way to success being first in every class?!?! damn.
Outliers are those who for good or bad differ markedly from the gaps sent in by the school - so the schools sends in 1st 5 marks ahead of 2nd but ends up 30 marks ahead then that would also become an outlier (as I understand it). If the school sent 1st and 2nd in 1 mark apart but 30 marks ahead of the rest and the exam also reflects that gap then they aren't outliers.
