have improved in the two years and exceeded expectations. The 2011 results for MLC indicate that of the 133 students who were tracked, 95 per cent attained or exceeded our expectations, which is a brilliant achievement. Each year MLC’s results statistics are analysed by an independent consultant to ascertain the degree of ‘value added’ an MLC School education makes. Students’ School Certificate results from Year 10 are compared with their Year 12 results to see if they • Overall 48% of the 155 MLC candidates for the HSC and IB Diploma in 2011 achieved an ATAR or UAC rank of 90.00+ • Four ‘Perfect Scores’ of 45 in the IB Diploma • 28% of girls scored 95.00 or above • 77% of girls scored 80.00 or above • 10 girls achieved over 99.00+ (10 IB Diploma candidates) • 3 Premier’s Awards for All Round Excellence for students achieving over 90 in 10 units of study in the HSC • Top Achievers in the State Anna Shelston - 2nd in Entertainment Industry Examination Monica Lee - 4th in Japanese Continuers Meta Barbara Cohen - 2nd in 1 Unit German Extension (Yr 11, The Open School) • 72 mentions on the Distinguished Achievers List Expert calculates a 95% Value Added education Premier’s Award recipients Claudia Barton and Alice Chance with Principal Denice Scala and Ms Maree Herrett, Head of Senior School Strong results highlight the MLC Difference When the International Baccalaureate Organisation posts its Diploma results each year, students from 3,315 schools in 141 countries log on to find out how they fared. This year, eight students in Sydney received perfect scores – and half of them were from MLC School. Lucy Cavallaro, Petronilla Grace, Nikita Simpson and Subeta Vimalarajah each scored 45/45 and automatically received the maximum Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) equivalent of 99.95. “One of the major factors why my parents chose MLC is because they offer the IB alongside the HSC. The immense support and encouragement from my teachers and the School was so overwhelming and I really couldn’t have done this without them,” Lucy Cavallaro said. The results reaffirm MLC School’s position as one of the top IB performers in the world with consistently strong results from students over the years. Four girls achieved perfect scores in 2010, two in 2009 and four in 2008.
