So approx what ranks would I be looking at to get 85+?

English Adv /118 (top 20 is really smart)
Maths Adv /123 (top 30 is really smart)
Economics /45 (top 10 is really smart)
Biology /82 (top 10 is really smart)
Chemistry /76 (top 15 is really smart)

School rank: ~200

Thanks :)

My guess would be:

English Adv 20/118
Maths Adv 25/123
Economics 15/45
Biology 20/82
Chemistry 20/76

That should roughly be enough - just note that ATAR to ranks estimates are really unreliable.

Probably a bit better than that.

Also, just because your top seems really good, doesn't mean they are in the whole state - I'm sure if you chucked them at a school like SGS or JRAHS, they'll get trumped.

Titration competition isn't related to HSC, JRAHS got 32nd in the titration but they're the best school in Chemistry and Girraween got 28th and they're probably top 5 in Chemistry.

I got to a top 40 school and it's not that mind blowing.

why do people always say their cohort is strong?? so far like all the schools 100~200 seem strong cohorts.. Most likely due to the fact they underestimate the harsh marking guidelines of the actual HSC.
go to topscores.info search ur school and see how many people get B6 for the subject for different years and average that out, the number should somewhat be the actual 'smart' people.

on topic, im guessing top 20% in overall ranking, as i dont know what ur strengths and weaknesses are.

Maybe late 100s or early 200s. I know it won't be top 100 lol.

If you actually go tutor with some people in the top schools, then you'll know if your cohort is actually 'strong.'

But even so, it isn't really clear because I know some people at like Baulko who don't try for tutor but top their grade.
