VCE, ATAR 2020 results LIVE: Victorian Year 12 students receive end of year results

VCE results are now available

It is 7am – that means students can now access their ATAR and their VCE results at the official VCAA website:

Some students are already reacting on social media, although I am afraid I can't include any updates on the blog at this stage as I haven't been unable to find one just yet with family-friendly language.

VCE results by the numbers

More than 46,000 students will shortly receive their four-digit ATAR and their detailed VCE results.

This year, 98.3 per cent of students successfully completed their VCE, up slightly from 98.1 per cent last year.

The average ATAR across all students was 68.14, and there were 38 students who achieved an ATAR of 99.95, the highest possible rank.

Female students had a slightly higher result on average than their male counterparts – the average ATAR for females was 69.45, while for males it was 66.60.

But males dominated those who attained the highest possible rank – of the 38 students who achieved an ATAR of 99.95, 32 were male.

A total of 14,215 students received a study score of 40 or above in at least one subject, putting them in the top 9 per cent in the state.

Study scores are out of 50 and are what students receive for each subject they completed, and these study scores are among the data points used to calculate their ATAR.

How can you access your ATAR?

In about 20 minutes, more than 46,000 VCE students will be able to view their four-digit ATAR and their detailed subject results.

Here is some information from the results day liftout in today's newspaper on how you can access this information from 7am.

You can receive your VCE results and ATAR in three ways:

The above are joint services providing your VCE results from VCAA and your ATAR from VTAC. If your school has recorded an email address for you, you will also receive your VCE results (but not ATAR) by email.

If you access your results online or using the Results and ATAR app, you will need your VCE student number and results service password.
