VCE RESULTS 2021

VCE RESULTS 2021

2021. What a year!

2021. What a year!

We are so proud of the achievements of all our students in 2021. The class of 2021 were the first cohort to complete their whole VCE in a global pandemic, and time after time they amazed us with their determination, adaptability and genuine support for each other. One of our VCE teachers said to me the other day that the class mantra going into their exam was ‘just keep writing’: this could well be a metaphor for the cohort’s efforts over the last two years.

We are pleased with every student’s results today: they are a credit to the hard work of these young people and their teachers throughout their time at University High School, and exemplify excellence through continued growth. Our results represent the efforts of students through a total of 1659 Study Scores across 32 subjects. 270 students in the 2021 cohort applied for an ATAR. We know that these results tell just a fraction of the stories of our resilient, curious and creative Year 12s, but we have plenty to celebrate and we look forward to the release of tertiary offers in January.

Some highlights include:

  • • 11 students with an ATAR of 99 and above; and 50 students with ATARs 95+
  • Dux 99.7; Dux Proximus x3 99.6
  • Median ATAR of 83
  • 150 students (52% of the cohort) with an ATAR of 80 and above
  • 67% with an ATAR of 70 and above
  • 244 students (85% of the cohort) with an ATAR of 50 and above
  • 6 perfect study score of 50 (Psychology x 2; Biology x 2; English Language; Italian)
  • Median Study Score (across all studies) of 31
  • 12.8% of all Study Scores were 40+; 222.4% of all Study Scores were 37+

Of our students in the Elizabeth Blackburn Sciences program, 44 (32% of that cohort) achieved an ATAR of 90+

In 2021 UHS performed strongly against state measures. 18 of our subjects recorded mean study scores above the state average.

Our highest Median Study Scores represented the breadth and depth of our school. They were found in:

Psychology Biology
English as an Additional Language Studio Arts
Media Literature
Music Performance Chemistry

The following subjects had 20% or more of their students achieving study scores of 40+:

Product Design and Technology Studio Arts
Psychology History (Revolutions)
Music Performance Visual Communication and Design
Biology

21 UHS subjects had higher than the state threshold for scores of 40 and above.

A number of subjects had an increased Median and/or Mean Study Score from 2020. These included:

Accounting Business Managment Biology
EAL Extended investigations French
Health and Human Relationships Literature Latin
Music Performance Psychology

Congratulations to all our students and teachers on your incredible accomplishments this year, and thank you to our families and broader community for your support and guidance.

UHS has acquired access to an important resource hub for Wellbeing of students and parents.

Today parents face a multitude of modern day challenges in raising happy, well and resilient young people. Whilst there is a great deal of information available, this can often be confusing and overwhelming for parents looking for guidance.
