Just for your information (and also because I'm bored....lol)

http://community.boredofstudies.org/569/general-discussion-2006-hsc/127782/top-schools-2006-a/7.html
The DAY BEFORE the school rankings and UAIs were released...lol (sure enough, it was accurate)

Bobness:
"I just got off the phone (don't ask me why) with Ruse principal Michael Quinlan and the top schools of 2006 are:

1) JRAHS: median uai is a smidgen below 99
2) Hornsby girls: zomg congratz esther
3) Sydney Girls: i did not see that coming. <3 sweetsweetcandy (my fellow clana supporter in the SV threads)
4) Baulkham Hills: yeah pat on the back for me too

That's in terms of the % of students who scored a DA (distinguished achievers) or 10 subjects above 90.

Ruse scored exactly 68 of these this year, which is a drop from the year before. However, supposedly, each school has considerably less because the 2006 hsc was moderated more harshly than the previous 4 years (2001 was the worst, lol). Expect to hear about that soon from the UAC.

And the above results should be published in the daily telegraph tomorrow, it's already in print. SMH does something different which is the % of students who score 90 in each subject taken (i.e. it's more evenly spread, than distinguished achievers) so expect baulko and maybe sghs to maybe jump up that list a bit.

Final thing, the english standard/advanced/esl hsc was marked the hardest this year, as confirmed by the ETA. True story, any band 6s this year were very hard to score"

Anyone able to do get that kind of information before it is released to the public? lol

OK, that's it. I'm going to try and get a friend to call the principal and wring her of all the info. I'm not talking to Treskin, argh.
But this deserves attention

No idea...:confused:
It's quite remarkable how he managed to get hold of that information in the first place.

Another remarkable thing was how they found the top raw mark was 118/120 in Maths Ext2 for 2006, which kinda disproved any speculation that full marks was achieved in 2006 (as Steph got 100 in it)...despite the Board of Studies now refusing to give raw marks...

I'm pretty sure you dont need 120/120 to get aligned 100?

And this is muchly bizzare. Maybe they FOId it, as schools might have more power over info than students

dun think you need 120/120 for 100.

beause so many people got 100 for 4 unit without getting 120.

same with 3 unit and not sure about 2 unit though. I think you need 100% 2 unit for 2 unit.

Yeah, but the fact that 100 was actually achieved for the first time in Maths Ext2...since a long time (top had usually been 99 in previous years)...opens the POSSIBILITY that full marks was perhaps achieved, which led to that speculation.

:confused:

I meant that when 100 was achieved in 2006, it led to speculation that the top might have achieved 120/120 (as 120/120 is ONE of the possible raw marks that can equate to 100 aligned) since then, it was somehow found that the 100 mark (top-of-state) achieved in 2006 was actually 118/120.
