This year he will study commerce at Melbourne University, with the hope to become an actuary.
Mr Mulcahy dreams of becoming a property developer.
This year he will study his first preference, a construction management course at RMIT in Melbourne.
He said the course would give him the skills to manage all elements of large-scale construction projects.
Miss Heale received an offer for her second preference, podiatry at Charles Sturt University in Albury.
‘‘I had always wanted a career in health. My first preference was for physiotherapy, but I changed my mind,’’ she said.
Since Year 8, Mr Coombs had set his sights on becoming a health and physical education teacher.
Mr Coombs will begin studying at Federation University at Mount Helen, near Ballarat, this year.
