We celebrate and congratulate the Class of 2012 on their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) results.
We had 126 boys achieving an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank), with the vast majority of boys gaining access to courses of their choice.
The purpose of the ATAR rankings is to provide a mechanism for placement in tertiary institutions. In a community such as ours, where most boys are aspiring to gain entry to tertiary courses, it is the ATAR that is important rather than individual study scores. The ATAR is a rank ordering of all students, rather than a percentage mark, hence an ATAR of 50 would place a candidate at the half way point of the population.
The 2012 Dux of the School is Andrew Polyachenko, who achieved an ATAR score of 99.80. Andrew joined the School in Year 7. He has not only had an outstanding academic career, gaining many academic prizes over the past six years, he has also been actively involved in the Debating and Peer Counsellor programs as well as being a keen tennis and soccer player.
- Four boys scored over 99.
- 23% of boys were ranked above 95, placing them in the top 5%.
- 36% of boys were ranked 90 or above, placing them in the top 10%
- 57% of boys ranked above 80
- 92% of boys ranked above 50
- The School’s median ATAR was 84.8.
