Not really. It did say on the bottom of the herald list that they did take school size into account.panicstation said:The SMH ranking is completely stuffed. It just counts the number of subjects in which over 90 per cent has achieved. So, schools with big candidatures do better. I think they need to divide the number of students sitting the exam into the number of distinctions achieved.
Also, the English table and the maths table are different. In English all students are listed in the first column. In maths, only students who achieved over 90 per cent are listed.
What is the matter with journalists? Maybe they never did any maths or stats at school.

Sorry, dagwoman didnt mean to offend I too go to a private school and i agree with you... the UAI isnt about the cost of the school at all, its the hard work of the individual. Unfortunately others dont see it that way and think that the more money you pay for schooling guarantees you a higher mark.dagwoman said:I find that really offensive. I went to a private school, but my UAI was not "bought". I worked my ass off, and that's what my UAI reflects.
