make-a-difference_year-12_2016We congratulate all of our Year 12 students for having each successfully achieved their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). We are very proud of all they have achieved during the year. A total of 19 students completed VCE and VCE Vet studies as our second Year 12 cohort at Cornish College.

32% of Cornish College’s VCE students were placed in the top 20% nationally with an ATAR score of 80 or above.

Many of our students have done remarkably well and we congratulate our 2016 School Dux, Sofia Fifield, with an ATAR of 96.3.

Cornish College is committed to offering students a wide range of VCE subjects according to the individual pathways that are identified through its careers program.

A summary of our VCE program in 2016:

27 – VCE 3-4 Units with enrolments

11 – VET certificates with enrolments

42 – students enrolled in a VCE 3-4 Unit (Years 11 and 12)

21 – students enrolled in a VET certificate (Years 10, 11 and 12)

1 – student awarded the VCE Baccalaureate

29 – median study score

100 – percentage of satisfactory VCE completions

100 – percentage of VET units of competency completed

100 – percentage applying for tertiary places

Students now wait for the offers of tertiary places on 18 January, 2017. We congratulate four students who already have offers of tertiary placements in areas including film production, nursing and script writing.

We wish all of our Year 12 students well for that next stage in their journeys.
