Catholic Education students achieve top results

13 February 2017

Catholic Education Western Australia students have again highlighted the success of our education system with their 2016 West Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) results.

Of CEWA’s 4,953 Year 12 students, approximately 96 percent achieved a WACE, which is above the total State average of 91.9 percent. CEWA students also continued improvement on their 2015 Median ATAR up to 81.95, and were awarded a total of 3,178 VET Certificate 2 or higher.

In total, 25% of all WACE General Exhibition awards and Certificates were achieved by CEWA students, which is highly credible considering CEWA educated 20% of Year 12 students.

For the first time in Western Australia all students were required to pass Literacy and Numeracy assessments in order to achieve WACE. Approximately 98% of CEWA students either prequalified or passed these assessments by Year 12. These outstanding results are a credit to the teachers, principals and system leaders who work with our students.

Congratulations to all of our Year 12 graduates, these results are the product of years of hard work and dedication. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
