Exceptional 2019 VCE Results
I am delighted to share with you our Class of 2019 VCE results. These are indeed exceptional results – some of the best in the School’s history – and are a testament to our students’ hard work and dedication throughout the year, and the outstanding support and mentoring provided by our teaching staff.
- 7% of our students were in the top 1% of the State (achieving an ATAR of 99 plus)
- 16% of our students were in the top 2% of the State (achieving an ATAR of 98 plus)
- 36% of our students were in the top 5% of the State (achieving an ATAR of 95 plus)
- 52% of our students were in the top 10% of the State (achieving an ATAR of 90 plus)
- The median study score is 36.
Congratulations to our Dux, Elisabeth Yeo, who achieved an outstanding score of 99.75.
Perfect scores were achieved in English, Mathematics, Geography and IT.
On behalf of the Kilvington community, I congratulate this exceptional group of young people for their maturity and conscientiousness, and wish them every success in their future endeavours.
VCE and IB (International Baccalaureate)
While we do not offer the IB program at Kilvington, students can still qualify for the VCE-Baccalaureate based on their VCE results.
The eligibility requirements to receive the VCE-Baccalaureate are as follows:-
- a Units 3 and 4 sequence in English or Literature 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, plus
- a Units 3 and 4 sequence in either Mathematical Methods or Specialist Mathematics, plus
- a Units 3 and 4 sequence in a VCE Language, and
- at least two other Units 3 and 4 sequences.
In 2018, 16 of our students qualified for a VCE-Baccalaureate – 22% of the Year 12 cohort.
The Kilvington VCE Mathematics program has grown from strength to strength over the past five years due to the expansion of the Maths VCE teaching team and adding even more rigour to the Maths curriculum.
Outstanding 2019 NAPLAN Results
Annually the Government conducts the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) – which assesses Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 across Australia. The NAPLAN maps each student’s outcomes onto a ten-band continuum, and results are reported against national minimum standards which are Year 3 Band 2, Year 5 Band 4, Year 7 Band 5 and Year 9 Band 6.
Students recently received their NAPLAN results for 2019. Once again, these results were consistently high across the year levels. We certainly appreciate each student’s hard work and effort in delivering their best on the day under these test conditions. The tests provide parents and schools with an understanding of how individual students are performing at the time of the tests. They are just one aspect of a school’s assessment process and by no means replace the ongoing formative and summative feedback and assessment cycle made by teachers within the classroom for student learning growth and progress.
The following table reflects Kilvington’s summary report at Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 for each of the areas tested for NAPLAN 2019: Reading, Writing, Language Conventions – Spelling, Language Conventions – Grammar and Punctuation, and Numeracy.
