In 2010 almost three-quarters of the Scotch cohort was ranked in the top 20 per cent of the VCE population.
WORDS: MR DAVID BROWN – HEAD OF YEAR 12 IN 2010
Mr David Brown (Head of Year 12 in 2010), Ian Wang, Edward Cliff, Mr Tom Batty (Principal) and Charlie Wang
Congratulations to the Class of 2010 for their outstanding VCE and Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) results, both individually and as a cohort. Three boys obtained the maximum possible ATAR of 99.95; the median ATAR was 90.35; and almost three-quarters of the Scotch cohort was ranked in the top 20 per cent of the population in the VCE.
Congratulations to Edward Cliff, Charlie Wang and Ian Wang, each of whom obtained an ATAR of 99.95, and were therefore the co-Duces of Scotch College in 2010. Edward, Charlie and Ian are all enrolled at Monash University in the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery course.
The median ATAR was 90.35, and 125 of the 249 boys scored 90.35 or above.
The Scotch College Class of 2010
There were 22 ‘perfect’ scores of 50 across 12 subjects. Edward Cliff obtained three scores of 50 (Chemistry, English and German), having already scored 50 for Biology in 2009. School Vice-Captain Alastar McMahon scored 50 in both English and History (Revolutions); Thushan Hettige (Year 11) scored 50 in his two unit 3/4 studies (Biology and Mathematical Methods-CAS). Six other Year 11 boys also achieved ‘perfect’ scores in their unit 3/4 studies.
Talent in the creative art subjects, exhibited through folios and performances, was acknowledged with a number of our boys being selected for the VCE Top Class presentations. Anzack Newman and William Sutherland were selected for Top Arts (Studio Art), James Vinson was selected for Top Screens (Media), and after four of our boys were invited to audition, Michael Kay was selected for the Top Acts (Drama) performance. Michael Byrne (in Year 11) was selected for Top Acts (Music).
Andrew Emmett has accepted a place at Harvard University, where he will undertake a Liberal Arts degree while keeping active in Harvard’s rowing programme. Richard Tuckwell is to start a Bachelor of Arts degree at Princeton, also later this year.
The results reflected the hard work sustained by the boys, under the guidance and expertise of their teachers, over many years.
The Class of 2010 can also be proud of its contribution to the school – the camaraderie that they developed, the achievements on the musical and dramatic stage and in the sporting arena, as well as their involvement in service activities. The skills and values they have learned both inside and outside the classroom will stand them in good stead for their futures. GS
