Almost one in four students who scored the maximum ATAR of 99.95 attended one independent school in Hawthorn. Scotch College racked up eight of the 36 perfect ATAR results awarded to Victorian students. It was followed by Penleigh and Essendon Grammar, Haileybury and Melbourne High, which each had three students achieve the perfect score. There were tears of disappointment, happiness and exhaustion on Friday as more than 50,000 students received their long-awaited VCE results at 7am.
Chey Beaver is one year 12 student who endured a restless night's sleep ahead of the release of VCE results today. The Mercy Regional College student said although she had studied hard all year, the nerves were kicking in. "I want to do nursing at Geelong (Deakin Waterfront) next year," she said. "I need a 65, which is achievable, but you never know. I've got my fingers crossed." She said it had been a stressful year.
Victorian universities are enrolling students with ATARs as low as 31 into some popular courses, new data has revealed. For the first time, universities have published data that discloses the minimum, maximum and average ATARs of their 2017 offers. The new information, which is part of a federal government push to improve the transparency of university admissions, provides new insight into the real distribution of ATARs among enrolments.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
