    It’s very pleasing to see that some of the public schools are performing really well, such as Ashfield Boys (3 firsts in the state), and Baulkham hills high school (5 firsts in the state)!

      Nothing to brag about. There are 60 language exams, other than English, offered in the HSC. Just how many schools offer Khmer, Tamil and Macedonian? What are the cohort numbers? I recall some years ago, that a student, who came first in Dutch, was the only one to sit the exam. This achievement hardly compares to a student, who comes first in Physics or Chemistry or English.
