2015 HSC Results

OldStleExamsAccording to the Sydney Morning Herald School HSC results rankings Parramatta Marist High was ranked 64th in NSW .141 students sat for 794 exams. Of those exams there were 164 results (20.4%) where results of 90 or higher (Band 6) were achieved. Congratulations to the, now Old Boys, of the Class of 2015. We recognise the limits of these league tables, see SMH Comment by SCEGGS Principal. These results are just one part of the life education provided by Parramatta Marist High through the Marist Charism to put these boys in good stead for the rest of their lives and for jobs that don't even exist yet.

This is the eighth year in a row the School has been in the top 100.

Some more Stats

  • Mathematics (Extension 1 and Extension 2) was ranked 6th in the state. Mathematics General 2 ranked 37th in the state.
  • 1st Catholic Systemic Boys School in NSW
  • 1st non selective Catholic Boys School in NSW (Aloysius is selective)
  • 2nd best Catholic Systemic School in NSW
  • 10th best Catholic School in NSW
  • 4 students received state places in different subjects
  • 6th in the state in Mathematics (combination of 2u, Ext 1 and Ext2 results). We were 8th last year.
  • 94% received a mark of 70% or above in all of exams (up from 90% last year). This means more students are getting better results across the board and not just at the top end which is unfortunately the measure used by the newspaper league tables.
