There was elation, celebration and even disappointment yesterday for the thousands of students who received their Victorian Certificate of Education.

Results were out from 7am yesterday, including the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank or ATAR score.

Victorian Education Minister Martin Dixon said it was an exciting time for students and their families who could celebrate their achievements after a challenging year.

‘‘Congratulations to all the students who have received their results, whether they are getting single subjects scores or graduating with their VCE, they should be very proud of what they have accomplished,’’ Mr Dixon said.

‘‘Completing the VCE requires dedication and sacrifice, and students should now take the time to relax and reflect on this huge achievement.’’

Mr Dixon said VCE was a collective effort and people such as parents, teachers and school staff should also be thanked.

The News has talked to six school students across the region — from Wanganui Park Secondary College, Notre Dame College, Mooroopna Secondary College, Goulburn Valley Grammar School, Shepparton High School and McGuire College — who were named dux of their respective institutions.
