Southern Cross Grammar (SCG) is extremely proud of its 2019 Year 12 students who have worked in a highly praiseworthy manner to achieve a number of outstanding results. We are also mindful that successful students depend heavily on each other and strong staff and parental support in creating a culture of success – to our staff and our parents and carers we extend our heartfelt appreciation for this encouragement and support.
43% of SCG students achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) above 80, putting them in the top 20% of students in the state. 24% of these rankings were in the high eighties or in the nineties, with 14% in the nineties. Our Dux and Dux Proximus achieved ATARs above 95 and we offer a proud and heartfelt congratulations to these two students.
The other very pleasing statistic was that 100% of students satisfactorily completed their VCE certificate with 71% of our students achieving an ATAR above 70, putting them in the top 30% of the state. Our median ATAR was 78.15, well above the Victorian median of 67.74. These are remarkable achievements for our young school.
Study Scores of 40 or higher are extremely difficult to achieve as they are only awarded to the top 9% of students enrolled in each Study (Subject) across the state. Five SCG students achieved a total of 6 Study Scores of 40 or higher in five different Studies (Subjects). In addition to this, there were numerous Study Scores in the mid to high 30s, indicating students were placed in the top 26% of students for those Studies (subjects). These are excellent achievements and fine rewards for these students’ hard work and dedication.
The median Study score for our Year 12 students has been calculated at 33 – this places SCG in an elite position as one of the state’s higher performing schools.
SCG would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all students who successfully completed one or more Year 12 Studies (Subjects) including those in Year 11 who commenced their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) this year.
We wish our 2019 graduates all the very best for 2020 in whatever pathway they choose to follow, whether it be commencing tertiary studies or employment or taking a gap year. We are proud of the way they have contributed to making our school what it is today!
