At Tintern Grammar we cater to each and every child, we understand every child learns differently and every path of learning is unique. In Year 12 we offer both VCE and VCE/VET pathways, our students have achieved exceptional academic results.
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is administered by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and is a two year course. Apart from the study of English, no other subjects are compulsory. Students may choose to specialise in areas of interest such as the Sciences, the Humanities or the Arts, or select a more general course from these and other areas. The VCE comprises a number of ‘Units of Study’, each designed to take one semester to complete. Units 1 and 2 are designed for Year 11 students while Units 3 and 4 are for Year 12 students. There is a great deal of flexibility within the VCE so that it is possible for students to study Units 3 and 4 in Year 11.
VET in the VCE or VCAL allows students to include VET within their senior secondary certificate. Students undertake nationally recognised training from either accredited state curriculum or national training packages which may contribute to their VCE and/or VCAL.
In 2020, 18% of our Year 12 cohort achieved an ATAR in the top 5% in Australia, 34% in the top 10% and 47% in the top 15%. The School’s median ATAR was 81.33. For further information about our results, please view our 2020 Year 12 results booklet which will be available soon.
