I was looking at table A8

http://www.uac.edu.au/pubs/pdf/2005-Table-A8.pdf

And using a UAI of 80 as an example, it says for 2005 "68.8". Is that to say that if you got a UAI of 80, then you only beat 68.8% of people? I always thought that the average UAI was ~66, and hence if someone got 66.00 then they beat 50% of people. I would have thought that if you got a UAI of 80, then you beat a lot more then 68.8% of your cohort. Help me out here.

so 68.8% of people YOU BEATED..

and 31.2% beat u

this system takes into account ALL CHILDREN WHO SHOULD HAVE DONE THE HSC..

so if u left at yr 10 you are given a uai (but not published ofcourse).

maybe they look at your school certificate mark to rank you accordingly - so more people would get a higher uai.
