Students at Victoria University

John Clift

Of those students entering with University Entrance as their highest school-leaving qualification, 47% are in the 17- 18 age bracket. This is a similar percentage to those holding an 'A' Bursary and considerably higher than those with a 'B' Bursary or HSC. Full-time students entering with UE achieve as well as those entering with a 'B' Bursary and significantly better than those with HSC. The analysis produced no evidence to support the position that the majority of students proceeding from school to university should do so from the Seventh Form. Remaining at secondary school for a Seventh Form may produce a monetary reward in : the form of an' A' or 'B' Bursary or Scholarship, but there appears to be no educational advantage to the student who remains at school for the extra year.
