2018 VCE ReSULTS
We congratulate the Class of 2018 on their achievements in the Victorian Certificate of Education examinations.
In 2018, excellent results were achieved across the range of humanities, sciences, information technology and business studies subjects.
Huntingtower, which is not an academically selective school, was ranked 2nd of all co-educational schools and 3rd overall in Victoria in 2018, with a median study score of 37. These results give our students excellent opportunities to achieve tertiary offers in the courses of their choice. Huntingtower has a balance of academically and practically oriented courses designed to provide entry into a wide spectrum of tertiary study or employment.
For the past 15 years, every student applying has received a tertiary offer.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
We are extremely proud of the wonderful achievements of our 2018 graduates in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). Thirteen percent of students achieved Australian Tertiary Admission Rankings of over 99. Thirty-nine percent of Huntingtower students received ATAR scores of over 95, placing them in the top 5% of Victoria. Fifty-three per cent of students were in the top 10% of the state, receiving ATAR scores of 90 and above.
A Study Score of 40 or more means that a student is in the top 9% of all students studying that subject – at Huntingtower, 34% of students’ results were over 40.
Once again, our VCE results confirm that Huntingtower is one of the most outstanding schools in Australia.
