2014 VCE Results

On behalf of all in the De La Salle community I would like to congratulate all our Year 12 students for their efforts in 2014 and acknowledge in particular those who worked so hard, demonstrating such commitment and organisation to achieve the results they sought. These excellent results are a just reward for the months of preparation and attention to detail.

A special thank you to all VCE teachers for the countless hours of preparation, instruction, marking, mentoring, meeting and encouragement. Many of our students would not have ended the year as well as they did without your unfailing support and high expectations.

The standard analysis reveals a College Median Study Score of 30, with 6.4% of Study Scores above 40. We are particularly proud to announce that over 28% of the 2014 cohort received an ATAR over 80, which puts them in the top 20% of the state. This is an increase of 4% from 2013 and augurs well for future growth and improvement in 2015. We are proud of all our young men. The number with ATARs in the 80 – 99 range is growing — this is terrific and an intrinsic element of the College’s commitment to improved academic standards. There is already in place a range of strategies to expand on this improvement for 2015 and beyond. I would also like to acknowledge the many students who set and achieved their own goals in 2015. These may not always translate to the highest ATAR scores for some individuals but I will always encourage and acknowledge any young man who gives his best and achieves personal excellence.

A more in depth analysis of our 2014 VCE results will be available at the start of the 2015 school year.

A special congratulations to 2014 College Dux Thomas Brasher, with an outstanding ATAR of 99.60, including two Study Scores over 45.

VCE (Baccalaureate) recipients

We congratulate Year 12 students Richard Laurens, Paul Kony, Liam O’Callaghan and Jordan Mitropoulos who, based on their VCE courses and English results, are eligible for the VCE (Baccalaureate).

This is the first year the VCE (Baccalaureate) has been awarded to students throughout Victoria. It was developed by the VCAA to encourage more students to include languages and higher level mathematics in their senior secondary program of study. To be eligible a student’s VCE program of study must include:

  • a Units 3 and 4 sequence in English or Literature or English Language with a study score of 30 or above; or a Units 3 and 4 sequence in EAL with a study score of 33 or above
  • a Units 3 and 4 sequence in either Mathematics Methods (CAS) or Specialist Mathematics
  • a Units 3 and 4 sequence in a VCE Language
  • at least two other Units 3 and 4 sequences.

The students’ Statement of Results will include an additional statement that recognises the award of the VCE (Baccalaureate).

We wish all students good luck for tertiary offers in the new year and look forward to continuing our relationship with them as Old Collegians.

Mr Peter Houlihan
Principal
