Mod: ANU, ATAR/HSC Marks

What Shadowdude said, this is completely wrong.I haven't read thread and I have no time for in depth answer so here is the most basic example I can think of -
Student 1 gets 100% in every single school exam and every HSC exam and is in some shitty outback country bogan school.
Student 2 gets 100% in every single school exam and every HSC exam but is in James Ruse.
Student 2 will be ranked higher. That is why the HSC is such a flawed fucking terribad system.
EDIT: Oh, and I heard that if your HSC marks differ wildly (wildly as in massive difference) from your school rank, the BOS will ignore your school ranking and scale you to JUST your HSC marks in regards to your ATAR. This is just what I've heard though, not sure.
