SCHOOL dux is a familiar title for Andrea Wendt.
The 18-year-old was dux of her primary school and yesterday carried on that tradition at Albury High with an ATAR score of 97.3.
But the school captain and North Albury netballer was modest about her achievements.
“I did study hard but I also enjoyed spending time with friends,” she said.
“I wasn’t sure what my score would be, I was just hoping for a score over 90 to get into medicine.”
Students could finally celebrate their HSC results yesterday.
NSW released subject scores on Wednesday morning, but students had to wait until yesterday to find out their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank, which could secure them a place at university.
Elena Haran, 18, had a delay in discovering her result after forgetting her pin number to access her ATAR score.
Elena’s 94.9 score will allow her to study a bachelor of arts at the University of Melbourne.
Foster McFarland, 18, was equally excited with his 96.35, enabling him to study physics at the University of Melbourne.
“I needed about 91, so it’s definitely a relief,” he said.
Albury High had 150 students complete the HSC in 35 subjects.
Principal Darryl Ward was “very proud” of them, saying worked to the best of their ability.
