Hi guys,
I was just wondering when and how do people get notified if they attain a state ranking in any given subject? Is it on the same day results come out? How do people know of their state rankings (if any) and what is the cut off for having a state ranking? (1-100? , 1-200?)

They are not given any notification (except first in course). The top achievers list is released sometime on the afternoon of the day results are released (the Wednesday).

The number of ranks reported depend on the size of the subject's candidature. All those reported must also have received a Band 6 or E4.

Course candidatureMaximum number of students reported
Greater than 10 000 20
From 1001 to 10 000 10
Less than or equal to 1000 5

Do internal marks affecting state rankings? Or is it based solely off external marks (i.e. the HSC exam itself)

It's your final HSC mark, so internal marks affect them.

would say 97/98 in internal + 95/96 in external receive a state ranking?

I only really know the approximate marks for a state rank in the maths/sciences, so I'll let some one who knows those subjects better answer.

It is based on HSC marks, which is the average of internal and external (to 1 decimal place if necessary).

Ties in Extension courses are broken by looking at the student's marks in other courses in the subject area.

Just to add, ties in non Extension courses are broken by valuing internal marks over external.

You won't know unless you came 1st in the state until 4pm or so next Wednesday. You can speculate, but it'll be hard to know whether you made the cut or not! If you got 96 or more for something other than maths, there is a strong possibility!! :)

Hello state ranker lol,
how did you get notified of your state ranking and if you can remember, when exactly? was it via email?

This has already been answered. You don't get notified unless you are first.

as Rafy has correctly said below, you wont get notified if you're 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th etc... only 1st. you will need to check the top achievers in course list which will be uploaded on BOS (the real board of studies site) at about 4pm, so have a look there! :)
