Another reason why I dislike the HSC concept. There’s so much focus on ranking from internals to the final ATAR system. It promotes toxic competition between students and seriously ruins relationships, especially in a teenage setting where students should be making most of their long time friends.spitting facts but the HSC system is very much based on ranking, so it's quite understandable when people are petty.
Technically it's instilled in the education system.
Also while it does rank you I don’t understand why it should be used as such an arbitrary indicator of one’s intelligence. Like, why do your grades at the end of High School, I.e. just the beginning parts of your life, should determine your intellect and ability to succeed? ATAR, in the end is a rank, but it’s just what is necessary to get into the course you want.
