ATAR 91.35

"Next year I hope to embark on completing a Bachelor of Arts, exploring my interests in humanities to eventually become a teacher. I love History and Literature, so I am very excited to study this further and hopefully teach it in the classroom one day.

My ATAR is beyond anything I had ever thought I could achieve, and I am still in a state of shock as I write this. I am hopeful of getting into my first preference of a Bachelor of Arts course at Melbourne University.

I attribute my achievements this year to my wonderful teachers, who supported me unceasingly on my journey. I felt truly encouraged at Elwood. The small class sizes meant that I had no qualms in asking my teachers for clarification and help. I was also able to develop personal relationships with my teachers, namely Mrs McDonald and Mrs Bolding, who offered me motivation when I needed it. I thank all my teachers as well as Ms Bentley who made the application and VTAC process very smooth."
