For the Americans most of, if not all, shold know what I am talking about. For those of you who needs to be reminded, a class rank is what tells you where you fall in terms of highest GPA to lowest. The lower the number, the better :wavey:

I am currently 5/336 with a 4.5781 weighted GPA. The class rank, along with my GPA will be better, because I had a grade change in my AP Psychology class, from a B to an A. I hope some of you will respnd! :hug:

Oh! i know this system! While attending school in Jamaica/England, I had the same system. In 2nd grade I was 3rd, then 2nd, then 3rd. In the 3rd grade I was 11th :help: :o, then 6th, then 4th. In 4th garde I was 2nd, the 1st, and 1st again!!! :bounce: 4th garde was my 1st time coming 1st! :D 5th garde I was 1st, then 6th :sad:, then 1st! In the 6th garde i was 1st for the 1st semester, then I moved to Florida :sad:

it was your standard sort of thing... my school was new so we were the first graduating class having started to fill a new grade each year since 7th (7th - 12th at that point until they built the middle schoo la couple of years later and dropped it to 9-12) ... then there was something about the tornado that happened in 11th grade during which time we had to split schools with the rival school across town ... and there wasa section about the class's achievements during that year and then thanking the teachers, staff, parents, etc... and then good luck and best wishes part ... it was a horrible experience, especially when the class president's speech which was immediately before said almost the same thing (obviosuly no consulting went on and they weren't read during rehearsal) :lol:

Lovejoy High School Class of 2004

rank: 136/678 GPA 3.74 SAT 1380

I am now a sophmore at The University of Georgia and supremely glad to be rid of high school.

Bleh, we didn't get to know our placement in our class unless we were top three. I was number 1 in grade ten and after that I got lazy ;) It's like, as soon as I got to the top I was satisfied and felt no need to prove myself any further. I still did well, of course, top ten for sure... but meh. I'm too easily satisfied, that's why I underachieve.

I wouldn't know my rank but I know I got the best GCSE results out of the girls at my high school. There were probably a couple of boys that did better than me though.

I think this system is really good to motivate students! Except when you hit rock bottom of course :tape:

I can't compare my school to all of yours, I guess. It was a small high school with a tough admission policy; if they thought you were not good enough, which they almost thought in my case :rolleyes:, they could reject you. I had to undergo a test that I barely passed to prove that I was good enough to study there :tape:

Anyways, I guess there were no more than sixty students in my final year, because it was all very small-scale. There was only one guy that was doing as good as I was, but in the end I beat him in average grade by .05 :rolls: So I finished first with an average grade of 8.8.

I don't know what that is in GPA, because the GPA system we use here in uni only goes till 4.00 but I saw others mentioning a GPA higher than 4.00 here.

I was first in my class all through junior high and high school except for one semester, but I went to a very small school so that doesn't mean much :p We didn't do GPA either but my average varied from 92-96 through-out those years. My lowest average was my senior high because my two calculus courses and one physics course really brought my average down. My best year was probably 10th or 11th grade.

my GPA was 3.53 which IMO was pretty good.

i think i was 12th or 13th overall in 82 students.

it would have been better if they had weighted the subjects from easiest to hardest. i did 3 tough subjects, 1 relatively hard and 2 easy. some had it easy all the way. :mad:

anyway, it doesn't really matter because i kicked ass for the IB's. i placed in the top 10.

and that's a long time ago. i graduated with honors for my degree and i'm doing pretty well in my masters now. granted, i'm doing coursework instead of a thesis, but heck. it's better than some people.

This ranking stuff is stupid.

What about the poor kids with dyslexia or learning problems that come bottom of the list?

I had one of the best set of GCSE results for boys in my year of 140, probably in the top 10/15 including girls.

I dunno... consider the usual demographic of the ones spending all day online and it might change your mind :lol:

Anyway, the way someone speaks on a forum isn't any indication of how they perform in school. You know, people let their hair down so to speak in social settings.

Plus the people who had a good score are more likely to come in and tell us what they got than the ones who did a bit crap in comparison.

But some people's top 5/10 finishes are very suspect to say the least. :tape:

About sixtieth out of a graduating class of 105.
Never wanted to do homework--got miserable grades in math and science, did fairly well in history and French, have never gotten below an A- in any English of any kind, ever, high school or college.
Smart enough, I suppose, but I was a lazy youth.

erm...i was ranked 40+ out of 60+ (our class started out with around 300+ students, but only about 1/6 of us actually graduated.:tape: ) in one of the worst high schools in D.C. :o
but it had nothing to do with my intelligence level.
i simply could care less about high school.:shrug:
i'm definitely ranked higher now in college, but i could care less about the actual number.
as long as i graduate with a GPA high enough to get me into a good grad school, i'm happy. :D

oh btw, i was ranked quite high because i um, sorta cheated my way through the chemistry monthly tests. i'm surprised the teachers never caught on. i mean, consistently 85 and above during the tests and 60-64 during the finals. :tape: and that too is because of the option paper where i could go on and on about organic chemistry. if it was about enthalpy and entropy my ass would have failed.

This is my problem in life. As soon as I reach the top, I get cocky and apathetic.

I think my ranking was like 50 (or maybe 80?)/350. Who knows - 2001 was five years ago. I remember just being happy I graduated because I was so close to being kicked out. Had I not had all the honors classes my freshman, sophomore, and junior year, my rank would've been much lower. I don't think I ever knew what my GPA was.

That was my problem. I remember when I was 14 I was by far the best in my year at Maths... I'd get different tasks to complete to the rest of my class cause what they were doing was a bit too easy for me. But then I couldn't be bothered to push myself for the next 2 years and a whole bunch of people did better than me in the end.

When applying for Uni, I went to the guidance counsellor, and I was in the top 15 out of 400+ kids. :shrug: My Uni GPA was a 2.85/4.3 at January though :tape: Probably the toughest course in the world. It's going to be much better at the end of the year, my marks have skyrocketed. Meh, first year GPA doesn't put my panties in a knot very much.

I agree that it's not fun. For me, class rank didn't mean all that much, I just wanted to do as well as I could do personally, didn't matter what others around me were doing. Wasn't quite the same for other people though. The worse years were my last two years of high school where people went seperate routes... i went the science route, so lots of calculus, chemistry and biology while others went the arts route, with lots of language and history courses. Those who were the most competitive for class rank took arts courses and expected to be able to move up in ranking because I was doing sciences and they weren't happy when that didn't happen. My senior year I was taking all different courses from another girl and I don't think I wrote one test, exam or paper without her coming to check what my mark was on it :rolleyes: I'm much happier now in university where i'm not the highest rank, it's a lot easier.
