About this guide

Think of this page almost like a school counselor, helping you through the tough decision of choosing the best school for your child. It includes a table of school rankings, which provides a simple way for you to compare the state’s top 100 schools based on how well they performed in last years’ VCE exams. You’ll also find some handy articles filled with helpful tips and advice on the benefits of tutoring and how to choose the right school for you.

VCE vs ATAR. What’s the difference?

It’s easy to get these two acronyms confused. While they are related, they are two different measures of achievement. VCE marks indicate how well a student performed in the end of year exams – a schools’ VCE ranking is solely based on these marks.

The ATAR on the other hand is a rank rather than a mark and indicates a student’s overall academic achievement in relation to other students. If you want to go to uni, you’ll need an ATAR. Find out how your ATAR is calculated here:

How are the VCE rankings calculated?

The table below shows the top 100 schools in Victoria, ranked by the percentage of study scores 40 and above. Here’s what you need to know.

A study score is not actually a score at all. It’s a ranking, and it shows how well a student performed in a study (aka subject) compared to every other student who took that study in Victoria.

The highest study score someone can get is 50, but a score of 40 or more means you’re in the top 9% of the state. The number of scores of 40 or above in each school is shown in column #4. The higher the percentage of these scores in a school, the higher performing the school is. This percentage is shown in column #3 and is how we rank schools in Victoria.

The Median VCE Score (column #5) is the midpoint of all study scores achieved by students in each school.
