2014 has been an outstanding year for Melbourne’s Year 12 Mount Scopus students.



Class of 2014

Class of 2014

With two-thirds of the cohort in the top 10% of the state and 12 ‘perfect’ study scores across 7 subjects, we are very proud of all of our graduates and their teachers.

14% of students achieved an ATAR score of 99 or over, 40% over 95 and an incredible 66% attained a score of 90 or above.

The median ATAR for Scopus students was 91.9.

40.1% of all VCE Study Scores were 40 or over and the median Study Score was 38.

Principal Rabbi James Kennard said, “We are delighted with this year’s excellent results for Scopus students. With a record number of students with ATARs of 90 or over, one student with the perfect ATAR of 99.95, and nearly one in seven in the top 1% of the State, we congratulate our students and their teachers. These results are a testament to the exceptional effort made by this year’s Year 12 and to the dedication of their teachers.

Amongst our top students are many who have gained so much from Scopus – the Jewish life, Performing Arts, Community and Service and Sports programs – and now they have shown their academic excellence as well”.
