HSC at MLC School
Congratulations Year 12 HSC students of 2018
Congratulations to our 2018 HSC girls. More than 60% of our Year 12 students received their final results on Thursday 13 December. As an HSC and International Baccalaureate (IB) School, it is difficult to compare our results with Schools which focus only on the HSC. MLC School is one of 12 schools in NSW which run the IB program, and we are most favourably ranked out of those schools.
Four students were placed on the HSC All-Rounders list for those who achieve Band 6 in 10 units of studies. Congratulations to Tina Gong (ATAR 99.85), Josephine Lam (ATAR 99.35), Jane Liu (ATAR 99.85) and Amy Song (ATAR 99.35). Congratulations also to Alyssa Filippoff, Ella Makovec, Veronika Males, Mackenzie McCowan, who narrowly missed this list, with one Band 5 and otherwise Band 6.
There were 101 instances of students being awarded Band 6 or E4 (the highest bands possible) while 61.5% of the cohort achieved a Band 6 in at least one subject.
