Student Academic Achievements

Mercedes College is proud to announce the outstanding achievements of the 2017 Graduates in both the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

Mercedes College had 136 students complete Year 12 studies in 2017 (117 SACE, 19 IB Diploma). 

We congratulate Connor Pangallo as our highest achiever with an ATAR of 99.8 in SACE and merits in English and Modern History. We also congratulate Megan Crossing who gained 40 out of a possible 45 points in the IB Diploma, with merits in Biology SL and Chemistry HL, equating to an ATAR of 98.3.

As an overall Year 12 cohort, 25% of students achieved an ATAR of 90 or higher and a further 37% gained an ATAR of 80 or higher. The median ATAR in 2017 was 83.4.

A total of 25 merits were achieved by Year 12 students in a range of subjects across the IB Diploma and SACE. A number of Year 11 students in both programmes also achieved merits in preparation for their final year.

We congratulate the Class of 2017 on their Year 12 results and thank the whole College community for their contributions throughout their learning journey.
