The students of Hume Anglican Grammar have made the school proud yet again with their outstanding academic achievements in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).
The 2023 cohort comprising 116 students, achieved some of the best results in the 12 years of Year 12 at the school, with 110 students receiving an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) and six opting for a non-scored VCE. This year’s results come off the back of recognition in The Age ‘Schools that Excel’ where we were awarded the top non-government school in the Northern region for achieving outstanding improvement in VCE results over a decade.
The percentage of students who received an ATAR of 90+ was 12%, with 35% of students placing in the top 20% of the state with an ATAR of 80+, and 51% of the cohort received an ATAR of 70+. Furthermore, the median ATAR of the cohort is impressive sitting at 70.70. This is a testament to the School's pursuit of academic distinction.
The Class of 2023 saw some notable achievements, with the Dux of the class Anthony Shu, achieving the highest rank ever achieved by a Hume student with an ATAR of 99.25, followed by the Dux proxime accessit Arnav Gupta, with 98.25. A total of 13 students received a ranking greater than 90, with Saatvik Sehgal, David Florendo, and Meles Nona ranking above 95.
The School takes pride in the achievements of all its students and congratulates the top-performing students for their hard work and dedication. The school would also like to thank the staff and parents who have supported and guided the students throughout their years at Hume Anglican Grammar.
Looking forward, the school is excited to see where the pathways of the 2023 graduating cohort will lead them.
