Well, this throws a spanner in the works.

I hope that the yet-to-be-published 'Search By Course' page provides data similar to that of previous years, otherwise it seems unlikely that I'll be able to update the Study Score Archive immediately.

Yeah, and it better have school names next to the peoples names as well.

This is shit at the moment.

How are you supposed to see how your old school went haha!

Guys, if you want to see "search by course" you need to remove "_VCE" from the URL and it will come up :D :D  I was like that VCE doesn't look necessary... Maybe I should remove it and see if that fixes the problem. Strangely it did! WTF... haha

Or Just type this

Nice find.

So, I guess they aren't publishing school names this year.

I will think about whether it is worth updating the Study Score Archive this year. It seems to me that there isn't much more that I can do with the data provided than what the Herald Sun's new interface is already exposing. Without school names, assigning rankings to students will be even less meaningful than before, since there are many people who share the same name.
