Hello Bored of Studies :)

I'm just interested to know what marks are required to state rank in EX1? Because I saw one of the posts here from BoS graduating in 2014 with 49/50 for English Extension I without a state rank? As well as someone having 50/50 but only being 3rd in state? I'm confused how they decide who gets the first and the state ranks?


Thank you so much :)

Internals can bring the persons mark down.

Oh wow, so they even look at someone's internals when they decide state rank? I'm still a bit confused why someone who got 50/50 did end up first in state despite garnering full marks? O__O

Yeah if you aren't ranked first you can lose state ranking.

Plus english is quite subjective so there is that element too.

50/50 for Ext 1 and they will compare ext 2 marks if tied.

This is definitely not true. If two students both received 50.0/50.0 in English Extension 1 and thus exactly the same assessment and examination marks to the exact decimal place, BOSTES would look at the English (Advanced) marks, not English Extension 2 marks. This is the same for any Extension course, EXCEPT Mathematics. If you do History Extension, they differentiate equal candidates using Modern History and/or Ancient History to determine ranks.
