Excellent VCE Results and Dux 2023

Congratulations to all our Year 12 students who received their results on Monday. I am pleased to report that Mordialloc College students in 2023 achieved an excellent success rate in completing their VCE studies.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Nearly 8% of students achieved an ATAR in the 90’s, 16% of students achieved an ATAR in the 80’s, (nearly 24% of the cohort above 80) and 19% of students scored in the 70’s, and thus 42% of the cohort scored above 70.
  • We achieved a median study score of 30
  • There were 6.4% of study scores in the 40’s
  • Two perfect scores of 50 were achieved by Cooper Russell in Year 11 studying a Unit ¾ sequence in Year 12 General Maths and Junze (Oliver) Huang in Year 11 studying a Unit ¾ sequence in Year 12 Accounting

A wonderful set of results and a credit to all staff and students who have all worked so hard to achieve so much not only this year but over the course of the six-year journey for these students.

In addition, congratulations to all our Year 12 Vocational Major 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 90’s.

Congratulations first to our DUX for 2023Lucas Van Leeuwen achieving an ATAR of 97.4, an excellent result that he can be very proud of. As such Lucas is in the top 3% of the state.

I would also like to congratulate the following students:

In the top 5% of the state, Anna Kuppe for achieving an ATAR of 95.05; in the top 6% of the state, Zali Logan achieved as ATAR of 94.35.

In the top 7% of the state: Gabby Colquhoun achieved an ATAR of 93.85 and Reema Ababneh achieved an ATAR of 93.3.

In the top 8% of the state, Ben Curtain achieved an ATAR of 92.3.

In the top 9% of the state: Amber Page achieved an ATAR of 91.05; and in the top 10%, Ulyana Biaroza achieved an ATAR of 90.3.

We held a special celebration morning tea for students and staff on Monday. Emma White our Senior School pathways coordinator has been available throughout the week for any change of preference appointments for their choice of university or TAFE courses. Our students are applying for a range of university courses including: Law, Psychology (Honours), Engineering (Honours), Science, Arts, Architecture, Secondary Teaching, Commerce, Nursing along with a number of other courses.

On a subject level we achieved some excellent results far exceeding the state average. This includes for English, General Maths, Applied Computer Software Development, Health, Outdoor Education, History, Psychology, Media Studies, VET Music, Product Design, Food Studies, Visual Communication and Art.

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.
