I presume that state rankers would be informed by bostes 1 week before the results come out. So who are those who managed to get state ranks, what is your rank and what subjects did you get it for?
I am very confident that I got in the top 100% for all my subjects.

Nope, to state rank 3u, BOSTES according to their website compares results with 4u cos a lot tie 100, hence reasoning why all state ranks for 3U are also 4U students. Therefore it is impossible for 2U students to state rank 3U unless they do not tie with a 4U student.
Doesn't it depend on the school they go to and their internal ranks in the school aswell?

School is irrelevant but BOSTES will go to the minute details to distinguish those who tied the highest hsc mark. Except for the school part to the question, I cannot answer since I dont work for BOS and I didn't get one :p

All I can do is quote from BOSTES. "If two or more students receive the top HSC mark, the average of the examination mark and the assessment mark (each to one decimal place) is then used to select the top student(s). In the case of extension courses, if two or more students receive equal marks then the marks awarded for other courses in the subject area are also taken into consideration."
