I need to rank multiple "subjects" such as listing the "subjects" from best to worst. <--not sure if subject is the correct term.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

example: school A and school B

school A has 10 students with an average score of 100%

school B has 30 students with an average score of 98%

which school would be better or ranked higher? Is there a formula i can apply?

a formula that I can use when there are hundreds or thousands of schools?

I feel that school B would be better... because there are more students?

I was thinking of using a weighted formula such as: students x weight(70%) + scores(30%) = final score

and then rank the schools from highest final score to lowest score

but the use of weights would be subjective...is there another method that i may use?

thank you
