More than 55,000 students across NSW have learnt their ATAR fate as HSC scores flooded in today.

James Ruse Agricultural High School has claimed the title of NSW’s top school for the 24th year in a row, while North Sydney Boys High came third, and Sydney Grammar fourth.

46 students reached the maximum ATAR of 99.95 this year, 16 of those were girls.

Universities Admissions Centre’s General Manager of Marketing and Engagement Kim Paino tells Luke Grant over 43,000 students accessed their results within the first 45 minutes.

“We always encourage them to look at other pathways and they don’t have to be disheartened by what they receive today.

“There will be other options available to them.”
