Wesley College Student

In 2006 Wesley College students achieved impressive results in both the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB DP), recording a median ENTER score of 86.90, significantly above the national average of 50.00. Twenty five percent of 431 Wesley students completing Year 12 achieved an ENTER score of 95 or above, placing them in the top 5% of students nationally.

This is a splendid achievement and a great testament to the teachers at Wesley who, every year, create many individual stories of success.

Graduates from the College have continued their studies at Australian universities with the majority choosing The University of Melbourne or Monash University - in addition to international universities including Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard in fields including medicine, law, commerce, politics, science and information technology.
