HSC results & school ranking

The HSC school ranking for 2021/2022 comes out after the examinations and results are realised to students. Here is how Matrix Education is ranking the top 150 schools in NSW.

They are using the performances of students in the end-of-the-year examinations to rank the schools

(Note that the ranking given in brackets are the ranks by each category for 2020):

  • Breakdown of Top 150 NSW Schools (In 2020 Independents schools make up 72% of the 150 schools analysed, followed by Govt/selective schools 18% and Govt/non-selective schools 10%)
  • Selective Schools/Government TOP 10 (James Ruse Agricultural High School, Carlingford, #1 in 2020)
  • Non-Selective Schools/Government TOP 10 (NBSC Mackellar Girls School, #1)
  • Independent Schools TOP 10 (Sydney Grammar School, Darlinghurst, #1)
  • Most Improved Schools (Sydney Grammar School, Darlinghurst, #1)
  • Top 150 Schools by Success Rate James Ruse Agricultural High School, Carlingford, (#1)

The 2022 HSC Rankings for schools are likely to follow the same ranking scheme. It is important to note that the ranking of schools is determined by the ‘performance’ of the students in the national examinations.
