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.”
