I am pleased to report that Mordialloc College students in 2022 achieved an excellent success rate in completing their VCE studies.
Some of the highlights include:
- 14 students achieved an ATAR in the 90s (12.5%) of the cohort, 20 students in the 80s which is 17.9% of the cohort, (30.4% of the cohort above 80) and 22 students scoring in the 70s which is 19.6% of cohort, and 50% of cohort above 70. Thus, 50% of our cohort were in the top 30% of the State!
- A median study score of 30
- 82.7% of our cohort applied for a tertiary placement with 100% being successful
This is a truly outstanding set of results and a credit to all staff and students who have all worked so hard to achieve so much, not only last year but over the course of the six-year journey for these students.
In addition, congratulations to all our Year 12 VCAL students for completing all course requirements and receiving offers to complete diplomas, traineeships and apprenticeships.
All of our Year 12 students can all be very proud of their achievements.
Special mention must go to our very high achievers who scored in the 90s. I was able to contact 13 out of the 14, so cannot mention one student without their permission.
Congratulations first to our DUX for 2022, Aaliyah Zaph achieving an ATAR of 99.45, an absolutely sensational result. Aaliyah is in the top 1% of the state. Aaliyah also scored a perfect score of 50 for Health and Human Development. She plans to study a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Melbourne University.
I would also like to congratulate the following students:
In the top 3% of the state: Tristan Cox for achieving an ATAR of 97.3 – he plans to study Neuroscience at Melbourne University; Max Telfer achieved an ATAR of 97.25 – he plans to study Computer Science at Monash University; and Tim Whitford for achieving an ATAR of 97.05 – he plans to study Science at Monash University.
In the top 4% of the state: Jade Goodman achieved an ATAR of 96.1 and she plans to study Science at Melbourne University.
In the top 5% of the state: Tamsyn Russell achieved an ATAR of 95.55 and plans to study Commerce/Science at Monash University.
In the top 7% of the state: Tom Krivacevic achieved an ATAR of 93.35; Lachlan Tomlinson achieved an ATAR of 93.35 and plans to study Commerce at Monash University; Beth Rowland achieved an ATAR of 93.3, Indiana Tsiros an ATAR of 93.25 and plans to study Arts at Monash University, India Thomas achieved an ATAR of 93.25 and plans to study Journalism or Psychology.
Jeneya Tran achieved an ATAR of 92.95, in the top 8% of the state, and plans to study Law at Monash University; and Emma Schultz scored an ATAR of 90.1, in the top 10% of the state.
On a subject level we achieved some excellent results far exceeding the state average. This includes for English, Biology, Business Management, Product Design, Food Studies, Japanese, Physics, Visual Communication and Studio Arts.
While we celebrate individual student success stories, it is important to remind everyone that your final ATAR score does not define you as a person. In the end it is a rank for tertiary admission. It won’t necessarily determine where you will go in the future or how happy you will be. All students should feel proud of their efforts and be satisfied they have given their personal best.
