St Augustine’s College student Jayne Livingston was delighted to see her Australian Tertiary Admission Rank score of 95.1, which also made her the college dux.
Her individual study scores were: 50 in Outdoor and Environmental Studies, which she achieved last year as a Year 11 student, 38 in English, 37 for Further Maths, 40 in Physical Education, 43 for Health and Human development and 38 in Business Management.
Jayne said she did not have any expectation for her results.
‘‘I was hoping for the best and that all the hard work would pay off, and it has,’’ she said.
‘‘I went online this morning and didn’t believe it at first, so I got mum to have a look and check it with me.’’
Jayne was keen to thank the teachers, the school librarian, all the staff at St Augustine’s College and her family for their help and support.
She is now planning to study a Bachelor of Arts degree at University of Melbourne, majoring in Media and Communication.
Jayne is interested in public relations but plans to keep her options open.
‘‘There’s a big wide world out there and I’ll see what other areas interest me,’’ she said.
Kyabram P-12 College’s dux is Matt DeCicco who achieved an ATAR score of 90.65.
Matt scored 37 in English, 38 for Biology, 36 in Chemistry, 31 for Methods, 39 in Psychology and 39 for Business Management.
He said his score was beyond his expectations.
‘‘I worked hard throughout the year but still didn’t think I’d do that well,’’ he said.
‘‘I was hoping for 85 or above but really wasn’t sure I’d get the score I needed to get into uni.
Matt was woken by a text message from a friend early Monday morning but his suspense was extended an extra few minutes after he entered the wrong pin number when trying to log in to check his results.
‘‘When I saw it I had to pinch myself and then ran out to tell my family,’’ he said.
Matt said he was very grateful for all the support he has received from the school and his family. He is now hoping to secure a place at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga to study veterinary science.
Jake Thompson is the dux of Rushworth P-12 College for 2012, achieving a score of more than 80.
This year’s dux students had some valuable advice for the VCE class of 2013.
‘‘Your teachers are the best resource you can have,’’ Jayne said.
‘‘Don’t forget your school assessed course work contributes to your score,’’ Matt said.
Both said it was important to maintain a balance between social life and studying. Jayne continued her dancing classes, just cutting down the time spent, and Matt played football for Kyabram thirds. They both got organised early and set up a study plan to follow during the final weeks.
They also noted how working hard throughout the year had contributed to their success and how the effort would now help them in the future.
