grammar at 9th, thought they would be higher given the state rankings and 1sts.

guess they musta had a crap tail or something.


also, i heard nsb was really bad this year. but 4th is alright.

Is it possible that a lot of the good Grammar students did the IB, so thus are not counted in the DA system?

ive never heard that they offered ib?

if they do, then coming 9th and all these state rankings is phenomenal

doing IB would disadvantage a school a lot though i reckon. imagine if the top 30 from ruse suddenly didn't count cause they did IB, i dont think theyd consistently top...

Isn't the IB harder than the HSC?
the top is about the same, IB might be a little harder. but IB doesnt have so many easy subjects like the HSC has to have.

also, you can fail ib apparently. but dunno how easy it is to fail.

Yes, that was the general concensus lol.

At least NSG is still in the top 5 *coughs*as opposed to 2009*coughs*

The kids from my school used that a lot! (although it was true :p )
"my school would be better ranked if the IB counted"

I think it's considerably more difficult :p

You fail if you get below like 24 (or ~70ish atar iirc) or something like that

I think one guy failed it in my year... he was dux of the school in year 7-9 and bombed out because he did all the difficult subjects
