Outstanding Academic and Internationally Benchmarked Test Results from 2015 AISM Students


HSC and ATAR Results:

Once again, AISM Year 12 students were recognised in Australia for their outstanding academic achievement in their HSC studies which resulted in over one in six students achieving an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) greater than 90 points and almost one in four achieving an ATA greater than 80 points out of a maximum of 99.9 points.

We congratulate the following 2015 AISM Year 12 students for being recorded on the 2015 BOSTES NSW Distinguished Achievers List for scoring a Band 6 or equivalent which is a score greater than 90 points out of 100 for a subject.

2015 International Schools’ Assessment (ISA) Results:

I am delighted to report that our 2015 students in Years 3 to 10 have performed extremely well in the annual International Schools’ Assessment tests.  Click the following link to learn more about the testing:  https://www.acer.edu.au/isa

The assessments are set and marked externally by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and in 2015 AISM students competed against 73,000 students in over 340 schools around the world. Other schools who have students taking these assessments include ISKL in Malaysia. Please click the following link to see the full list of schools: https://www.acer.edu.au/files/ISA_Participating_Schools_2014-15.pdf  

AISM is using the ISA data collected each year to monitor individual student and cohort data so that we can adjust our teaching to address any identified areas of need in terms of developing transdisciplinary skills.  In comparing 2014 and 2015 data we are very excited to report that our students have improved in almost all areas, across all year levels, in addition to scoring results that place them well ahead of their international peers. Congratulations to all students for their dedication to their studies and to all of the teachers for their outstanding professional service and teaching of our students.

Please see below the table outlining the outstanding results from the 2015 cohorts.

I am confident our students will continue their upward trajectory with outstanding results and I look forward to receiving further evidence of our students’ outstanding achievements as the year progresses.
