Deniliquin High School’s exemplary performance in the Higher School Certificate has continued with the Class of 2013.
School principal Andrew Collins said while he was still processing figures, he said students received ‘‘above average’’ results this week.
Mr Collins said the vast majority of students received test scores of between 80 and 100 in most subjects.
‘‘We had a number of Band 6 (90-100) results in a range of subjects including biology, mathematics and senior science,’’ he said.
‘‘We also had a large number of Band 5 (80-89) results in over 20 subject areas.
‘‘This places our students in the top brackets and the results compared well with state averages.
‘‘Generally students have been very pleased and feel they are now able to gain entry into their preferred tertiary courses.’’
New opportunities have opened up for some Deniliquin High School’s Year 12 students of 2013 since results were released.
The HSC results were issued on Wednesday and Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks scores released yesterday.
Among those considering their options are graduates Mollie Leetham and Beth Hindriks.
Both were given early university acceptances for degrees in the medical field, but say their results could potentially open more doors.
Both Mollie and Beth scored Band 6 results in senior science and Band 5 in other subjects.
Mollie said while her dream to become an occupational therapist had not changed, she now has some extra options when it comes to where to study.
‘‘My ATAR was in the 80s and I had mostly Band 5 results in my other subjects. I already had early entry to occupational therapy at Charles Sturt University in Albury, but now I have more options in Bendigo, Melbourne or Geelong.’’
Beth, who got an ATAR score just below 80, said she was considering swapping her degree after seeing her results.
‘‘I was happy with my results, getting mostly Band 5, but I’d hoped for a higher ATAR. I have early entry into nursing at Albury but I want to study paramedicine (to become a paramedic).’’
