Yeah, the majority of Renaissance classes are at the old private schools. If you check the list of top scores, pretty much all of them come from rather well known schools. It's just because the resources are expensive and the knowledge is fairly specialised, so it's hard to find a decent teacher. My teacher had a ridiculous amount of resources, mostly because his father was a Renaissance historian so it's unfortunately a privilege thing

Jarryd; It's pretty easy to find out. Your teachers should know, if not I'm sure the VCAT site should tell you. I'm pretty sure you get an extra two points for an underrepresented school, and an extra two points for a rural school. I'd say most you could hope for would be about 4 points lower, for a first round offer. Might make all the difference though Smiley And it might change from course to course and uni to uni, so I wouldn't take it as a steadfast rule or anything.

You might want to check this, as far as I know you don't get flat bonus points.

Yeah, they've only been doing Renaissance at my school for 4 or 5 years. Our resources are getting there, and the school is on a regional uni campus so we can access other stuff, but it's not nearly as advanced as private schools. We also don't have select entry, so you kind of have no choice as to who you're stuck in  a class with :(
