lol yes he would have. he's a strong olympiad maths gun, and is a maths natural. although i dunno who would win in stacey vs tim HAHAHAunlike ruse's cohort last year (ruse10), ruse11 didn't have any super freakishly smart people. there were no stacey laws, or superb olympiad members (there were a few, but they weren't stand-outs). if ruse11 was like ruse10, then the number of firsts in courses/top achievers would've been significantly higher (and t.large wouldn't have topped mx2 or come in the top3 for that matter).
so yeah, their 'totally unexpected' results were kinda expected by the majority of rusians (ruse11=dud cohort). but watch out guys, I hear ruse12 is pretty damn smart!
There were heaps of 89/100 and 44/50, but they don't count for the rankings. Scaling wise, those 89s made quite a difference in ATARs though, so I reckon we got pretty much the same set of ATARs as the previous year.lol I know a lot of people who just graduated from year 12 penrith high and even they said their grade was crap. yeah there were smart ones but most of them just partied and didn't give a fuck by the end haha. shameful how their rank dropped!
m8, the HSC is an exam, its rather sad to say that coming in the top 5 in the state is "exceptionally shamefu;". It comes across as rather patronising hmmm?68.83% success rate for ruse? Dang, massive drop from last year!
Yeah, this year's cohort was weak. :'( (weakest cohort so far, or so I've heard) especially in english omggggggggggg! English was exceptionally shameful... and also, NSB is catching up in maths! ruse12 better make us proud!
Sorry..I made an error...the link I got to was the 2010 full list. As I did not see it before, I didn't know my school's rank so I though it was this year's, I am sorry but I believe the full list is not out yet.hey, how do you know your school went up 3 places?
wheres the list that goes outside the top 100?
Wow I can't even begin to imagine the standards at Ruse, are you guys the best school in the southern hemisphere?haha. okay that was an exaggeration. and m8, I'm sorry if that came across as rather patronising, because it really wasn't supposed to. what I meant was that it was rather shameful compared to other years.
Ruse is a lively and encouraging environment to grow up in, with plenty of support from principals and teachers and students to help you perform well as a group (not just individually), which is the main reason it does so well. So yeah it's an amazing school that works very well as a team, but it's hard to judge for a best school in the whole southern hemisphere because there's so much to compare.Wow I can't even begin to imagine the standards at Ruse, are you guys the best school in the southern hemisphere?
