More than 46,000 students will shortly receive their four-digit ATAR and their detailed VCE results.
This year, 98.3 per cent of students successfully completed their VCE, up slightly from 98.1 per cent last year.
The average ATAR across all students was 68.14, and there were 38 students who achieved an ATAR of 99.95, the highest possible rank.
Female students had a slightly higher result on average than their male counterparts – the average ATAR for females was 69.45, while for males it was 66.60.
But males dominated those who attained the highest possible rank – of the 38 students who achieved an ATAR of 99.95, 32 were male.
A total of 14,215 students received a study score of 40 or above in at least one subject, putting them in the top 9 per cent in the state.
Study scores are out of 50 and are what students receive for each subject they completed, and these study scores are among the data points used to calculate their ATAR.
