can someone please ask better education to do full ranking list of %DA?... maths and english are great, but only a small part of what most schools do...
They used maths/english because that's the only available data.

Indeed. It's much better to look at the value adding of an institution. i.e comparing results of earlier years to later years and measuring the improvement.
This has a measurement issue for use as a comparative tool across different schools because there are no common external exams before the HSC, especially given that the SC has been abolished (unless you count NAPLAN which isn't exactly an appropriate measure anyway). Even if you do compare HSC with SC data for the same cohort, the SC external exams only cover a limited range of subjects compared to the numerous courses offered in the HSC.

Can ranks change dramatically from year to year?

:p
If you read the thread, you'll know why it wasn't possible. (It's illegal and there was insufficient data released)

Rankings are fairly meaningless and unreliable past the top 100 anyway.
