Academic excellence at Wesley College


Congratulations to the Class of 2018

We are extremely proud that our students continue Wesley’s tradition of academic success and achieve excellence in all areas of learning. This reflects our commitment to developing the whole student, by providing a true education through the principles of learning – to know, to do, to live with and to be. 

In 2018, 55% of our Year 12 students studied the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), and 45% studied the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP). 

Here are some highlights of their outstanding achievements:
  • The IB DP median ATAR was 93.30
  • The Wesley combined median ATAR for VCE and IB DP was 87.10
  • 44% of students attained an ATAR of 90.00 and above, placing them in the top 10% of the equivalent Year 12 cohort in Australia
  • 185 perfect study/subject scores were attained across the VCE (VCE study score of 50) and IB DP (subject score of 7) cohorts   
  • The combined percentage of VCE 40+ Study Scores and IB DP 6+ Subject Scores was 33.4%
