Hundreds of year 12 students across the Border region closed the chapter on years of hard work after the Higher School Certificate and Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank were released on Tuesday.
Multiple border schools had students with exceptional results, competing against more than 66,000 HSC students across the state.
Sixteen-year-old Trinity student Madhulikaa Sarjapuram attained an all-rounder award for students who have received a top band in at least 10 units.
"Making the all-rounders list especially was a big achievement," Ms Sarjapuram said.
"I want to go into medicine and pursue a career perhaps in the political side in the future."
Another Trinity all-rounder Faye Cameron, who was also dux of the school with an ATAR of 99.45, was "over the moon" her self discipline had paid off.
"I studied all the time, I worked on the weekend, that was my time off, and then during the week I would do five hours of homework and study a night," she said.
Trinity principal Justin Beckett said the results were a testament to student and staff consistency.
"We've got great teachers - they're dedicated, and the students have worked really hard," he said.
Albury High students Abigail Adams and Scott Howsam also achieved the all-rounder accolade.
Mr Howsam was dux with an ATAR of 99.15.
