Teachers in Asia usually rank their students according to their academic performance in class. Thus, if there are, say, 23 students in one class, there will be 23 "places," place 1 being the place for the top student and place 23 for the worst.
In this kind of setting, what would be the natural way of inquiring a student's standing in this system (given that you talk to that student for the first time)?
Would this way work:
1) What's your school progress ranking in class?
or maybe this:
2) What's your academic rank in class?
or what would you say?
