Top Three International Students

The order of merit for international students studying in Victoria on a student visa is based on their Premier’s VCE Awards score. This score is calculated by the addition of the study scores obtained for the best four VCE studies plus 10 per cent of study scores obtained in up to a maximum of two other VCE studies. University subjects and VET studies may contribute to the score. Full fee-paying overseas students are not eligible to receive an award in the Top All-Round VCE High Achiever or Study Award categories.
