2018 Pre-Tertiary TCE Academic Results
The Friends’ School has maintained outstanding academic results for its Year 12 leavers for many years and 2018 was no exception.
- 20 TCE and IB students (12.8%) achieved scores that convert to an ATAR of 98.5 or above – Top 100 in Tasmania;
- 77 students (49.4%) achieved an ATAR of 90 and above; and
- The average ATAR for our 2018 cohort was 87.22
The School community is proud of its 2018 Year 12 Leavers and their remarkable TCE examination results. Students at Friends’ can achieve their pre-tertiary qualifications through two pathways: the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. The TCE can be taken with one or more Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses. The IB Diploma Programme is recognised throughout the world and is another means to qualify for university admission. The IB Diploma Programme results are published in early January.
In 2018, our students displayed a commitment to their learning and care for one another as they strived for academic excellence. For some students, their commitment to learning placed them among the highest achieving students in Tasmania and Australia. For many other students, their hard work with studies has resulted in achievements beyond their own initial goals. We would like to acknowledge all students for their achievements in 2018.
The outstanding 2018 TCE results are largely due to the dedication of students and staff working in partnership and inspired by the School’s belief in the intrinsic worth of each person and its expectation that students will do their best.
On behalf of the staff and our students, we would also like to acknowledge the contributions from parents, who are integral to Friends’ continuing its strong history of delivering leading academic results.
The Friends School community hope that our 2018 Leavers ‘Let Their Lives Speak’ and hold a quote by Quakerism founder George Fox close in their minds and lives:
“Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations, wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them. Then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone.’
