SACE Results 2018

The High School Academic Assembly, held earlier this week, celebrated the academic successes of the Year 12 Class of 2018.

While not all of the Year 12s who were recognised at the assembly were able to attend, due to other commitments, it was exciting to see a good number of the students back at school for a brief visit, before they begin their university studies.

The 2018 Year 12 cohort achieved excellent Stage 2 results and the percentage of our students receiving their first preference Round 1 offer (78% in 2018) has been increasing each year. It is pleasing to see that a very high percentage of our students are progressing on to their desired university and career pathways. 

Also recognised at the assembly were three students who achieved A Grades in Stage 2 subjects undertaken while in Year 11 – Joshua B, Matthew V and Estee K. These students, along with 18 other Year 11s, also received an A Grade for the Stage 2 Research Project, which was undertaken in 2018.

With this in mind, we look forward to seeing our Class of 2019 continue their efforts throughout the year, and are encouraged by some excellent results from this year’s Year 12 cohort.


Year 12 SuccessYear 12 Success Report, 2018

The College community would like to congratulate the Year 12 Class of 2018 on the success achieved throughout the year. 

Every graduating student achieved their South Australian Certificate of Education, as has been the case for many years at Cedar. This is a significant achievement given that the SACE completion rate across South Australia was 97.4%. 

In terms of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), 22% of our graduating Year 12s achieved an ATAR of greater than 90, and 37% of our students achieved an ATAR of 80 or more, placing them in the top 20% of students in the State. To have 37% of our students placed in the top 20% of South Australian students is an amazing achievement.
