The breadth of tertiary courses offered also reflects the wide diversity of interests and talents of the student group, and we are proud to see such a range of disciplines chosen: from Biomedicine to Design, Commerce to Psychology.

* Number of students who achieved 99.95 was previously two, however has been adjusted to three after an Enquiry Upon Results (EUR).

** The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) provides a measure of overall academic achievement that assists universities in ranking applicants for course selection. The ATAR is arrived at after the VCE study scores out of 50 are scaled. Students undertaking the IB also receive an ATAR, referred to as a Notional ATAR.
