Madeleine Elliott is one of many Goulburn Valley high school graduates waiting for her ATAR results and The News spoke to her for our Change of Preference guide in today's paper.December 10, 2012 10:23am
Mooroopna Secondary College’s Madeleine Elliott is among the many Goulburn Valley VCE graduates anxiously waiting for her ATAR results on December 17.
For those planning to pursue higher education, next week’s results may mean considering a change of preference for university courses.
Madeleine studied English, maths, health and human development, biology and business in Year 12.
She said it was great to be finished school after six final exams.
“It’s the biggest relief, knowing you don’t have to worry about anything any more,” she said.
Madeleine, 18, said she studied a wide variety of subjects to keep her options open for university.
“I want to get into a health course, probably physiotherapy or nursing,” she said.
She said she hoped to get into physiotherapy at La Trobe, although she had nursing as a back-up plan.
Madeleine said the first year of the degree was general subjects she could study at the Shepparton campus, and she planned to move to the Bendigo campus for her second year.
She said living at home and working part-time would allow her to save enough money to move away.
Madeleine said the option to change degree preferences until December 24 was a relief, as she was still not 100 per cent certain which degree she wanted to study.
“And especially if people get ATARs they’re not expecting, they can sort something out,” she said.
