We truly believe that your values shape your future and are committed to building a culture where students are nurtured, challenged, inspired and empowered to achieve their God-given potential. We are at this time extremely proud of the values our Class of 2019 have displayed and believe their results are a reflection of respect for the time invested by parents and teachers; responsibility and integrity shown through their commitment to study, and resilience to stick it out despite adversities this year.

ATAR and Study Scores Explained

What is an ATAR?

An ATAR is the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank, a ranking of Year 12 results compared to other Year 12 students around Australia. The ATAR is not a score out of 100. It is a rank that allows tertiary institutions to compare the achievements of all students who have completed Year 12.

In Victoria, ATARs are calculated by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) when a student completes the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).

What is a study score?

A study score shows how well a student performed performed in a subject at unit 3 and 4 level, compared to everyone else in Victoria who took that subject. Study scores are used by VTAC to calculate student ATARs.

The maximum study score is 50. A score of between 23 and 37 indicates that a student is in the middle range. A score of 38 or more shows that a student is in the top 15%.
