Our Year 12 ‘Class Of 2023’ | Today’s ATAR Results Summary

Dear Canterbury Community,

Today we received our subject results from the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) and our ATAR results from the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

So I am pleased to share with you some of the highlights and summaries of our Year 12 student cohort’s academic achievements in 2023.

This year, we have three remarkable students who achieved an ATAR over 99.00.

This is the equivalent of an OP1 in the previous system.

Congratulations to Caleb Garai who received a 99.60 ATAR and is our Dux of the College for this year.

Fellow graduates Chloe Ahern received a 99.50 to be awarded our Proximae Accessit to the Dux, while Duli Silva received a 99.30.

Six Canterbury students will be awarded with Premier’s Commendations for their superb results of six As.

Overall, 33% of our Year 12s achieved an ATAR of 90.00 or above.

This is our third best result in the College’s history, with a record-high ATAR/OP eligibility of 84%, which would be one of the highest levels in the state which averaged 51%.

Again, this showcases our high academic credentials and culture, as part of Canterbury’s four-dimensional education in Academics, Sport, The Arts and Service & Leadership.

22% of our students achieved an ATAR of 95.00 or above, representing the second-best result in the College’s history.

57% of our graduates achieved an ATAR of 80.00 or above, also the second-best result in the College’s history.

In addition, this Year 12 cohort earned 147 VET qualifications between them, a strong indicator of the ‘World Ready’ skills and training they have already attained across the past two years.

There were 98 results of 90 or above in individual subject results, which is truly worthy of acclamation.

24 of our students achieved only As and Bs.

I am proud of the results achieved by all our students across the full ATAR range, based on effort and diligence in their various subjects, and not just natural academic talent.

To the Year 12 teaching and support staff, as well as everyone who taught the Class of 2023 over the years, thank you and well done.

More importantly than anything else, these results will open doors for our students to take the next step in their lives with confidence and optimism.

Many of our Year 12s have actually already received offers for their first or second course preferences, and it’s genuinely rewarding to have guided them along their life destination.

Please Note: As is the case for every Queensland school, these results only include those students who have provided permission for the school to access this information.

We do enjoy high levels of permission from our students, while some schools seem to experience lower rates of permission granted by their Year 12s.
