Friday, 18 Dec 2020

The Scots School Albury had almost 40 percent of its cohort on the prestigious NSW Distinguished Achievers list and students scored a total of 26 Band 6 and 100 Band 5 results when 2020 HSC results were released today.

14% per cent of the cohort achieved ATARS over 90 and four students recorded scores above 95 in individual subjects. Standout performances came in the fields of Music and Mathematics, including two students who placed in the top band of results for the toughest and most demanding Mathematics course, Extension 2.
The Scots School Albury ATAR Medal winner Luke Marsh earned an ATAR of 97.65, narrowly missing All Rounder status. He scored a 98 in Mathematics Extension 1, a 94 in Mathematics Extension 2 and also earned a top band result for Physics.

After accelerating Mathematics Extension 1 as a Year 11 student last year, Alex Freire continued her mathematics excellence with a 94 in Mathematics Extension 2 this year.

Claire Stanley showed her versatility by scoring Band 6 results in three of her five subjects, including Visual Arts in which she excelled with a 95 raw score.

Marsh, Freire and Stanley led the way on the Distinguished Achievers list and other students to be recognised were Sigrid Bahr, Sarah Collie, Tabitha Cross, Maddison Geddes, Freya Giles, Olivia Hearn, Kate Kingsell, Claudia Kirwan, Ziggy Lamond, Desna Ramjee, Sophie Standish, Will Tomkins, Shelby Vincent, Thomas White and Jake Wright.

Shelby Vincent and Thomas White set the Music world alight with scores of 96 and 98 respectively. Vincent had earlier received a nomination for Encore, a State-wide acknowledgement of outstanding HSC Music students.
