CONGRATULATIONS TO THE YEAR 12 IB CLASS OF 2016
The College celebrates the final chapter for the Year 12 Class of 2016 with the release of the IB Diploma results.
Once again, a Monte student has achieved the highest possible mark in the world. We are thrilled that Madeleine McDonald has scored a mark of 45, translating to a perfect ATAR of 99.95. Two other students, Ainslie Scott and Alyssia Ellwood, were very close, achieving impressive ATARs of 99.85.
Madeleine McDonald: 2016 IB Diploma Dux and Perfect IB score of 45
All 62 IB Diploma students achieved the required minimum of 24 points or above, with the vast majority considerably exceeding those minimum requirements. We celebrate these outstanding results and particularly acknowledge those girls who achieved Distinction level results (ie scores of +40). Joining Madeleine, Alyssa and Ainslie were: Johanna Biddle, Georgia Carlaw, Ailish Doherty, Katrina Milliner, Lena Mouatt, Julia Marks and Grace Morahan. 73% of the IB Diploma cohort achieved ATARs exceeding 90.
As part of the IB Diploma, students are required to complete an Extended Research Essay. The girls performed admirably in this highly challenging academic task, presenting superb analyses in English Literature, Economics, Environmental Systems and Societies, History, Psychology, World Studies, Sports Exercise and Science, Mathematics, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts.
IB Diploma students are required to complete a balanced program, incorporating creativity, activity and service in conjunction with academic requirements. All 62 students embraced this aspect and generally exceeded expectations.
