Where can one find the rank of their school?

What kind of bearing do school rankings have on an individuals UAI/HSC?

Does anyone know much about rural/regional schools/students getting UAI/HSC boosts?

There is a rank based on the number of Band 6, each school published by the SMH and Tele but it is not a school ranking as such and has no influence on UAI or HSC. No HSC boosts for rural system.

There are schemes for entrance but I don't have a copy.

What the hell why would regional students get UAI boosts? (yes I'm in a regional area). School rankings don't have any influence on your marks directly, but the performance of your year group in each subject does.

Schools do not come into the UAI calculations at all.

They may affect your study and results because of that but have no factor in the calculations, other than the moderation process of your assessments.

then why do people ask what their school ranking is in order to estimate someones UAI
Because they are that, estimates. People are estimating if your assessments may be inflated based on your school.

A lot of it is a guess.

top 10 schools tend to predict closer UAI marks.. normal schools have been known to underestimate.. for internal marks like when u want to plug it into SAM

Regional boost are usually an internal university thing.. like u get bonus pts for being disadvantaged.

Merceds it depends on how your school cohort goes in the exams that will determine your schools assessment range.
