2019 Academic Results

  Add to Favourites

We congratulate our Class of 2019 Higher School Certificate (HSC) and International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) students on their excellent academic performance and pay tribute to the Ravenswood teaching staff who have supported them on their journey.


In 2019, 101 girls sat the HSC and 24 girls sat the IB, applying themselves with determination, maturity and focus. The School achieved two perfect IB scores of 45, which convert to an ATAR of 99.95 and two scores of 44 out of 45 which convert to an ATAR of 99.85. This year, 46% of the Class of 2019, both HSC and IB students, achieved an ATAR above 90. The median ATAR was 89.60 and 25% of the combined cohort achieved an ATAR of 95 or above, an outstanding outcome for a proudly non-selective school.

In the HSC, we achieved a First in State for Chinese in Context and 163 mentions on the Distinguished Achievers List (up from 134 in 2018). We also achieved 13 nominations for student showcases. In the IB, 21% of girls achieved an ATAR above 99 and 79% achieved an ATAR over 90.
