The 2019 HSC results are in and students across the Central Coast have performed exceptionally well.
The Coast’s Selective High School, Gosford High School, was by far and away the Coast’s most successful school, recording 263 Band 6 results, with two students also making the coveted First in Course merit list, Olivia Russell for French Beginners and Patrick Fang for Mathematics.
The NSW Government’s Education Standards Authority released the 2019 merit lists on December 17, with students across the Coast waking up to their results that morning.
The Coast had a large number of students featured on this year’s Honour Roll.
Thirteen students were named to the All Round Achiever list, with six added to the Top Achievers list. All Round Achievers are students who achieved the highest band result possible in 10 or more units of study.
They were: Gosford High School’s Georgina Buckmaster, Emily Calbert, William Dahl, Samuel Dobb, Lakmali Edirisinghe, Rosana Lee, Yiyang David Liu, Nasser Malibari, Makali McEvoy-Folland, Daniel Missak, Samuel Perrone and Yuting Zheng; and Central Coast Grammar School’s, Natalie Band.
Top Achievers are, by definition, some of the highest scoring students in the state. They are students who achieved one of the highest possible results in their exams and a subsequent state ranking in their course out of the maximum allowed candidature which varies from course to course.
They were: Gosford High Schools’ Olivia Russell, first in French Beginners; Patrick Fang, first in Mathematics; Liam Flew, seventh in Investigating Science; and, Yve Nichols-Evans, eighth in Investigating Science; Benjamin Issac, St Edwards Christian Brothers College, tenth in Construction Examination; and, Mia Gillard, Narara Valley High, tenth in Music 1.
Distinguished Achievers are the students who achieved a result in the highest bracket (Band 6 or Band E4) for one or more of their courses. A comprehensive list of all students named to the 2019 Distinguished Achievers List from high schools in the former Gosford LGA, listed by surname in alphabetical order, is far too lengthy to be published here, but can be seen on our website’s education news section coastcommunitynews.com.au
