Year 12 results for 2017: The story is now complete

A number of year 12 students at Ivanhoe Grammar School chose to undertake the well-respected International Baccalaureate to expand their options for tertiary education.

The dedication and hard work for these students were realised today with the release of the International Baccalaureate (IB) results. Congratulations to all students, we are extremely proud of their achievements.

In particular, we would like to congratulate our IB Deuces Amelia Upperton and Will Smith who both achieved an IB score of 43. This is equivalent to an ATAR of 99.7 and placesthem in the top 0.3% of the State.

Following the release of the IB results, I am now in a position to provide a consolidated picture of the academic outcomes and successes of the Class of 2017. Students completing their Year 12 studies at Ivanhoe Grammar School in 2017 have again performed to a high standard with many achieving their personal best.

Please join me again to congratulate our Dux of VCE at each campus alongside Amelia and Will, all receiving exceptional results. Well done Kevin Mao from Plenty Campus who achieved an ATAR of 99.8 and Christopher Neophitou from The Ridgeway Campus who achieved an ATAR of 99.6.

Congratulations are extended to all our students, as we achieved on a consolidated basis (VCE and IB):


  • 16% of our Year 12 students achieved an ATAR of 95 or above, placing them in the top 5% of the State
  • ,,

  • 31% achieved an ATAR of 90 (top 10% of the State)
  • ,,

  • 57% achieved an ATAR equivalent of 80 or above
  • ,,

  • there were 40 perfect study scores in VCE and IB subjects.
  • ,,

As an open-entry school, students of all abilities are a part of our School community. Although the results above share some of our top achievements, the importance of celebrating the personal best of all our students cannot be underestimated. I congratulate all students who have worked to their capacity and thank the dedicated teaching staff who have supported them.

Further details about our Year 2017 results and student’s destinations will be published in February when all university offers have been made to our students.

We are extremely proud of our class of 2017 and wish them success in their future endeavours.

Yours sincerely

Gerard Foley
