Haileybury students have achieved a stunning set of results in the 2017 Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).
Three students obtained the highest possible Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR) of 99.95. This places them in the top 36 students out of the 60,000 in their year cohort.
Lachlan Coman, Eishitha Galpayage Don and Daniel Ong each obtained this exceptional mark. As a result of scoring 99.90 Clara Charbine is the Dux of Haileybury Girls College and Lachlan, Eishitha and Daniel are the joint Duces of Haileybury College (for boys).
Forty-eight percent of all Haileybury ATAR results were in the top 10% in the country with an ATAR of 90 and above. The ATAR is the ranking used by universities across Australia to allocate students to courses. One of Haileybury’s core academic aims is to have students achieve a strong ATAR so that they have a wide range of study choices available.
Thirty-six students (8.7%) attained an ATAR of 99 and above and 115 students (28%) attained an ATAR of 95 and above.
Haileybury is proudly an open-entry school and to have 68% of all ATAR results in the top 20% in the country and 91% of students in the top 40% in the country is a reflection of high-quality teaching and hard-working students.
The percentage of Study Scores of 40 and above is a widely published measure. A Study Score of 40 means that the student is in the top 9% of the students studying that subject. An outstanding 29.5% of Haileybury Girls College Study Scores and 26% of Haileybury College Study Scores were 40 and above.
Thirty-nine Study Scores of 50 (the highest possible) were achieved in 11 subjects. Seventeen of these results came in English and 13 in Mathematics subjects. This is the continuation of excellence in these academics streams.
The 2017 VCE results further cement Haileybury’s reputation as one of the outstanding academic schools in the Asia-Pacific region.
My congratulations go to all students, their families and the teaching staff. This is a wonderful collective effort.
