Jack Drummond named College Dux for 2022 at Mount Lilydale Mercy College

Mount Lilydale Mercy College is excited to announce that our College Dux for 2022 is Jack Drummond, who achieved an ATAR of 99.3.

Jack is hoping to study a double degree in Science and Engineering at Monash University from next year. “I really enjoy Science and with the double degree I’m keeping my options open.”

Reflecting on the reasons behind his success, Jack said having a good circle of friends, a supportive family, staying focused and “trying to find things to enjoy in every subject” helped him in his studies. “I had hopes of scoring a 95 so to get a score of 99, I was really surprised. I’m really happy with that.”

Jack studied English Language, Specialist Mathematics, Maths Methods, Physics and Chemistry this year, having already studied Units 3 and 4 of VCE Music Performance while in Year 11. He was one of the College Vice Captains this year and also took part in the College Musical and the Kool Skools music recording project. He said was grateful to have enjoyed “the full Year 12 experience” this year after two years impacted by COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns.

Today our VCE students received their ATAR results from the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. We are immensely proud of the achievements of the Class of 2022 students who demonstrated a passion for learning and achieving their best.

All students in our top 10 received an ATAR score above 90, with Baxter Lill scoring 98.2, while Noah Ruta and Teagan McConachy each scored 97.45.  

7.52% of our VCE cohort who applied for an ATAR achieved a score above 90, 26.32% of the cohort achieved above 80 and 45.11% of the cohort achieved above 70, while 63.91% of the cohort achieved an ATAR above 60.

We also congratulate all students who completed their VCAL studies, along with our VET students who fully or partially achieved dual certification.

The College congratulates all Class of 2022 graduates who studied and achieved their results following an extraordinary three years of education impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We warmly wish all of our Class of 2022 students the very best for their future endeavours and look forward to seeing what the next chapter will bring.
