Local graduates have more insight into their future studies following the release of Main Round university offers last week.
Former students were able to check their NSW university offers from 9pm on Thursday and Victorian university offers offers from 2pm Friday, with more than 87,000 people learning if they have been offered a place to study at universities throughout Australia in 2014.
Deniliquin High School student Emma Barnett, who scored an ATAR of 95.7, received an offer for science at the University of Melbourne.
‘‘I hope to major in physics or chemistry and continue with a master of teaching,” she said.
‘‘I’d like to become a science teacher in a rural community like Deniliquin.
‘‘It seems the Deni High students who gave 110 per cent got their first preferences, and should be highly commended for their efforts.
‘‘But of course all students who received offers should be very proud of what they have achieved, and be excited for what the future holds.
‘‘I think we have all ‘faced the task’ rather well.”
DHS 2013 Year 12 advisor Paul Ferguson said he was ‘‘really happy with the students’ performance’’.
‘‘It’s a great indictment on the school,’’ he said of the Class of 2013’s performance in exams and university acceptances.
Most offers are made in the main round, with 55,804 offers representing about 68 per cent of the total offers released in 2013.
UAC Round 3 offers will be released on Thursday, January 30 at at 9pm, and VTAC Round 2 offers are available from Thursday, February 6 at 2pm.
