The Top All-Round VCE High Achiever awards recognise those students who achieved study scores of 46 or higher out of 50 in at least five VCE subjects, while Study Awards recognise the best performers in individual VCE subjects.

The Andrews Government is delivering on its promise to build the Education State so every Victorian student can get a great education.

The Government’s $60.2 million investment Student Excellence Program is equipping schools with the resources, tools and professional learning opportunities needed to support high-ability students.

Every government school now has a high-ability practice leader to coordinate their school’s participation in these programs and to support their high-ability students.
