Mooroopna's Lindel Speedy is confident she'll get into her preferred course.


Lindel Speedy is among the many Goulburn Valley VCE graduates relishing the respite from exams while waiting for their results.

A one-year student exchange in Japan during Year 10 held the Mooroopna teenager in good stead to fast-track VCE Japanese in Year 11.

She studied physics, chemistry, English literature, maths methods and history revolution during Year 12 this year.

Lindel, 18, is quietly confident of achieving a high ATAR score and said her first preference was to study science and chemical engineering at Monash University.

“Last year’s ATAR score was 92,” Lindel said.

“If my ATAR isn’t high enough, my back-up plan is to do a science degree and move into chemical engineering.”

Despite completing an extra VCE subject, Lindel said effective time management helped her balance study and a healthy social life.

“I stayed on top of my studies during the week and left any social stuff for the weekends.

”I went to lots of 18th birthdays and got my licence. It’s been a great year.”
