Mount Lilydale Mercy College is excited to announce that our College Dux for 2021 is Kimberley Fiorentino, who achieved an ATAR of 97.9.

Kimberley will take a gap year before beginning her tertiary studies.

Reflecting on the reasons behind her success, Kimberley said it was “important to seek support from others but you need to put in effort and consistently apply yourself”.

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 2021 students who demonstrated a passion for learning and achieving their best.

7.23% of our VCE cohort who applied for an ATAR achieved a score above 90, 20.4% of the cohort achieved above 80 and 45.4% of the cohort achieved above 70, while 75% 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.

MLMC also had four students awarded the VCE-Baccalaureate in 2021. The VCE-Baccalaureate provides an additional form of recognition for those students who choose to undertake the demands of studying both a higher level Mathematics subject (Mathematical Methods or Specialist Mathematics) and a language in their VCE studies. They also scored 30 or above for English or Literature.

The College congratulates all Class of 2021 graduates who studied and achieved their results following an extraordinary two years of education impacted by COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns throughout 2020 and 2021.

We warmly wish all of our Class of 2021 students the very best for their future endeavours and look forward to seeing what the next chapter will bring.
