Meriden surveys its exceptional HSC results

18 December 2019

Meriden Class of 2019 has performed exceptionally in the HSC and continues the School’s tradition of strong achievement across all subject areas, particularly English, Maths and Science. The girls’ marks put the school in fourteenth position overall in the 2019 HSC Schools Ranking.

Jiaqi Emily Xue topped the state in English EAL/D, while nine other students placed in top fourteen positions:

Name Course Position in State
Emily Xue English EAL/D 1

Jessica Qiao Chemistry 3
Tilda Stafford History Extension 3
Rain Wei English EAL/D 4
Katherine Willetts Modern History 5
Jessica Qiao Physics 5
Anna Jin Mathematics 11

Twenty per cent of the cohort has been named as All-Round Achievers which means they achieved a result in the highest band in ten or more units of courses. Two students have been awarded the highest possible ATAR of 99.95, while fifty-three per cent of girls received an ATAR of 90 or more.

Three Meriden students have accepted scholarships to American universities, including prestigious positions at Harvard University and Columbia University. Fourteen girls have been nominated for HSC showcases and will have their major works for Music, Visual Arts and Design and Technology performed and displayed over the coming months.

Meriden is proud of the achievements of all its HSC students whose consistent hard work has paid off in these outstanding final results. We look forward to hearing about the girls’ next steps as they share their talents with the global community.
