Trinity Anglican College student Jason Cox has been accepted into Medicine at Monash University after scoring an outstanding ATAR of 98.55 in his HSC in 2016.
Cox, who was 1 point from achieving ‘all-rounder’ status, scored 95 for Mathematics, 94 for Biology, 93 for Physics and 91 for Advanced English.
And fellow student Caroline Lowe scored the College’s highest individual subject result when she earned 96 for Food Technology.
Jason and Caroline spearheaded the College results which included 14 Band 6 (top band) results – a quarter of Food Technology students received a band 6 and 22% of Biology students also were in the top band.
Deputy Principal Peter O’Neill said the College was proud of its class of 2016.
“We’ve had some outstanding individual results as well as some personal best achievements,” Mr O’Neill said.
“If students achieve at the best level they can with scores that allow them to follow their first choice career pathways, then we’ve done our job. And that is exactly what’s happened.
“We have students like Jason and Caroline leading the way and others who have achieved well above their expectations at the middle and lower end.
When compared with the State average, Trinity students proved they were anything but average. Results show that 67% of courses undertaken at the College achieved results above the state mean, including Construction, which was 10.34 above the state mean, and Physics, 6.69 above state mean.
