Highlights of 2020 SACE Results

Pembroke School

22 of our SACE students studied an IB subject this year, meaning that for nearly 13% of our SACE cohort their results will improve further in January when IB Diploma and subject results are released. We will provide a comprehensive analysis of our Year 12 results in our Excellence and Leadership publication in the new year.

For now, these are the highlights from SACE results received thus far:

  • There were 166 students in our SACE cohort, and all who were eligible achieved their SACE.
  • Brendan Lu received an ATAR of 99.95.Brendan completed his SACE with an impressive four subject merits garnered over two years: 2019: Specialist Mathematics; 2020: Economics, Chemistry, and English Literary Studies. He also participated in the University of Adelaide Headstart program, achieving a High Distinction in Mathematics for both semesters. We heartily congratulate Brendan.
  • From ATAR results received already: 16 students received an ATAR ranking in the top 1% nationally, one of the best results for us in recent years. 43 students received an ATAR ranking in the top 5% nationally, again a very strong result by comparison with previous years. 68 students received an ATAR ranking in the top 10% nationally.
  • 100 A+ grades were awarded to our students resulting in 42 subject merits achieved across 16 subjects.
  • Ten students received multiple SACE subject merits. Congratulations to these students.
  • 11 students studied at the University of Adelaide within the Headstart Program: five in Human Anatomy and Physiology; five in Mathematics and one in Forensic Science and Neuroscience. These students all achieved two High Distinctions for their tertiary studies, which convert very positively to their ATAR.

St Peters Girls  

The percentage of SACE Stage 2 grades in the ‘A’ band is a phenomenal 73% compared with 66% in 2019, 63% in 2018 and 59% in 2017. This emphasises our consistent academic improvement and far exceeds the State figure of 30%.

The median ATAR is 92.85 with 19 merits, and 38% of our students achieving an ATAR of 95+.

Special mention goes to Eleanor Anderson who recorded an ATAR of 99.4 and two merits. Another remarkable student, Isabelle Norman, received an ATAR of 98.9 and three merits, and has been accepted into the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Our Class of 2020 flourished across all subject areas, in particular:

  • The percentage of Mathematics grades in the 'A' band is 63%, more than doubling the State figure of 31%. In General Mathematics specifically, 83% of our students achieved 'A' grades.
  • In Business, Enterprise and Technologies, 91% of students received 'A' grades (compared with the State figure of 27%).
  • Across The Arts, 89% achieved 'A' grades (State figure - 41%).
  • In English, 78% recorded 'A' grades (State figure - 32%).
  • In Food and Hospitality, 50% of students achieved an A+ (State figure - 5%).
  • Across Health and Physical Education, 44% received an A+ (State figure - 4%).
  • Our Year 11 students excelled in Research Project, with 91% recording 'A' grades (State figure - 37%), including Amelia Pudney who achieved a merit.

In addition, 45 of our 65 Year 12 students have secured early entry to the University of Adelaide and/or Flinders University after applying for pathway programs based on their Year 11 grades.
