Hi everyone!

I have a quick question regarding the calculation of the ATAR and was hoping someone could please address it, I hope this makes sense! I was wondering whether your

**cumulative internal rank in a subject, will match with whatever external mark another person got depending on your rank.** This probably doesn't make sense, but here's an example:

There are two people in an Advanced Maths class:

Person 1 Gets a rank of 1st

Person 2 Gets a rank of 11th

Person 1's cumulative rank in Maths is 1st, so will the external mark for Person 1 is equal to and will match whoever got the highest mark in the school's year group.

Whereas, Person 2's cumulative internal rank in Maths is 11th so this means that the student in the same year group who got 11th highest in external exams will match with Person 2 due to their internal ranks?

I hope this makes sense, thanks in advance!
