FOR those that didn't receive their VCE results early this year, the anxious wait is finally over.

After 2000 students saw their results five days ahead of schedule following an embarrassing technical glitch, the majority of the class of 2016 found out their results yesterday morning, with local schools thrilled at their students' hard work and dedication over the year.

Gippsland Grammar's Dux was Anna Morscheck, who obtained an ATAR score of 98.95, with a perfect score of 50 for English language.

Gippsland Grammar's median ATAR score was 73.2, and 8 per cent of the students achieved a score above 95, placing them in the top 5 per cent of the state.

Of the entire year level, 19 per cent of students obtained an ATAR score of over 90 putting them in the top 10 per cent of the state, whilst 39 per cent per cent obtained an ATAR score over 80, placing them in the top 20 per cent.

The school's average study score was 31.4, and as 8.3 per cent of the study scores were over 40, the school will be published on the VCE High Achiever's list.

The school noted that seven out of their top ten ATARs were scored by girls.

"Another outstanding result for Gippsland Grammar, we're very proud of all of our students."

The Dux of Catholic College Sale this year was Sean Duivenvoorden, with a score of 98.05.

Catholic College Sale principal Chris Randell said he was very excited about this year's VCE results, as well as celebrating the students who have already received their apprenticeships and traineeships.

Maffra Secondary College announced its Dux of 2016 as Molly Angliss, with an ATAR result of 96.75.

The school was thrilled with Molly's performance, applauding her great commitment and dedication to her studies throughout the year.

"I'm completely surprised and relieved with my score, I can't believe it," Molly said.

Molly is looking to pursue a career in medicine, and was fortunate to receive an early conditional offer from a major university.

"I'm going to wait and see what other offers come, but I'm really excited that I'm one step closer to my dream of becoming a GP in a rural community like ours," she said.

Maffra Secondary College had 58 students complete their year 12 studies this year, and principal Adam Hogan said the year level was a really unique group that had been very close over their six years together.

"They've supported and challenged each other all the way through, and we believe this is reflected in their impressive results this year", said Mr Hogan.

"We're very proud of all of our students this year, who will go on to access a range of pathways.

"We're really proud of Molly, who has shown such dedication to her studies this year, and has been a very genuine and passionate individual who has been a great role model across the college."
