We are so proud of the achievements of all our students in 2020, and delighted with strong outcomes across the school. This a credit to the hard work of students and staff throughout their time at University High School. Our 2020 results are steady with, or improved upon, those of 2019 across a range of areas, continuing the tradition of excellence at our school. They represent the efforts of students through a total of 1541 Study Scores across 32+ subjects. 272 students in the 2020 cohort applied for an ATAR.

Some highlights include:

  • 17 students with an ATAR of 99 and above

  • 1 perfect study score of 50 (Further Mathematics); plus 5 study scores of 49 (Further Mathematics, Mathematical Methods, Physics, Chemistry, Visual Communication)
  • Median Study Score (across all studies) of 32
  • 12.8% of all Study Scores were 40+; 25.3% of all Study Scores were 37+

Of our students in the Elizabeth Blackburn Sciences program, 27 (39.7% of that cohort) achieved an ATAR of 90+, with 5 reaching 99 and above.
