1st in North Sydney Girls Maths Ext 1 1st in North Sydney Girls Maths Ext 2 2nd in North Sydney Girls Chemistry 99.85 ATAR

I still remember the shock I felt when I opened my report.Afterall, this was coming from someone who was a reserve 32 for North Sydney Girls High School, who always sat in the audience seats during Presentation Day watching others receive awards, envious of their talents and results. Particularly, the sense of dread that I can never be good enough followed me through the first few terms of year 11 and 12, when my ranks were never in the top 5.You can imagine my delight when I saw that I came 2nd and 3rd for Chemistry and Physics respectively.

My vision blurred with tears the longer I stared at my double digit ranking.That afternoon I spent hours sobbing into my mother’s arms before I could even find a hint of courage to tell her my score. I was too scared to face the anger and disappointment that would replace the expectant look on her face.he next exam, the trials, I placed 2nd. Although overall, I only placed 4th in Chemistry, I had the highest raw HSC Chemistry score in my school. Sleep-deprived at 5am in Korea, my whole family cheered in celebration.

1st in Chemistry Exam (3rd Overall) 3rd in Physics Exam North Sydney Girls 99.60 ATAR

I had a bad feeling simmering at the bottom of my gut.My teacher moved slowly from table to table, handing out the yearly test papers face down.It would just be another below-average mark.Huh. That’s weird.Since that day, I went from being a below-average student with a result of a 77 Year 11 to a 94 in Year 12. I had ranked first, only losing one mark in the first year 12 chemistry exam.

Mustafa Khan

1st in Chemistry (95) 94 in Physics Dux of Sydney Grammar 99.95 ATAR

Maths and science were never my strongest suits. Time after time, exam after exam, I would make silly mistakes, which all added up to cost me many marks in exams. I hated seeing “NO!” and “Careless” written all over my exam scripts in bright red ink. I never got a HD grade in maths in Years 7, 8 and 9.Fast-forward to my HSC year, and I managed to achieve top bands in all my maths and science subjects, and an ATAR of 99.95. I’m now studying the Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine at the University of Sydney – a degree that seemed out of my reach just a couple of years ago.

I graduated from Meriden in 2022, finishing Year 12 ranked 1st at school for Chemistry, Maths Extension 1 and Maths Extension 2. I achieved a 99.8 ATAR with marks of 96 in Chemistry and Maths Extension 2, and 97 in Maths Extension 1.I improved my marks a lot by slowing down, forcing myself to precisely think about how each step or conclusion was connected to the previous one. I strive to teach in the same way, helping you to pinpoint those gaps and fill them in to make sure each concept is solidified.

Maggie Barnett

3rd in NSG Chemistry (98) Chemistry State Rank Mark 5th in NSG Maths Ext 2 (95) 99.75 ATAR

still remember sitting in the car, with my year 11 maths teacher on speaker with my parents. “Will Maggie get into Extension 2 Maths?”And even if she does, she’l I was rank 65th/121 for Maths Advanced and 77th/128 for Maths Ext 1. She was right to some extent, and I didn’t end up getting into Extension 2 Maths first round. When they sent the second round offers, her words echoed in my mind. Why would I pick Extension 2 KNOWING I would be at the bottom?

I thought I had done everything right.I’d spent hours staying up doing the homework and past papers. I sat at the front of class and asked the teacher questions every single lesson. But when I opened my Year 10 chemistry paper, it all felt like such a waste.I’d barely scraped 70%. AGAIN.Three months later, I topped my cohort with full marks in my first Year 11 Chemistry exam.

Hi, I’m Andersen. I graduated from Sydney Boys in 2023 and am now studying Medicine at UNSW. After receiving the worst marks I’d ever gotten in my Prelim Chem Half-Yearly, I thought that my luck had run out - that my natural talent would only take me so far and I wasn’t really that smart. But I knew that wasn’t true, and that something had to change - and it did. I finished the HSC with an ATAR of 99.80, ranking 4th in SBHS Chemistry with a 97 in the HSC.

4th in Physics (94) 10th in Chemistry (92) North Sydney Girls 99.45 ATAR

Year 11 Physics was a completely new experience to me, revealing new concepts which seemed daunting and challenging.During exams, I would panic, seeing the page filled with phrases and concepts like forces and electromagnetism which still felt foreign after terms of learning.After each exam, I would come back with a mark I wasn’t satisfied with, feeling disappointed about the errors I made.

Austin Markwick

1st in Physics 1st in Maths Ext 1 and 2 Dux Proxime of Scots All Saints College 99.80 ATAR

At the end of Year 9, I really lacked direction.There were moments where I even considered leaving at the end of Year 10, getting a trade somewhere, and following the conventional path of a lot of kids I grew up with. You weren’t often celebrated for being a nerd, and any ATAR over 90 was considered an anomaly in my community (Bathurst).

Hey, I’m Niklesh. I graduated from James Ruse Agriculture High School in 2021 and am currently studying actuarial studies and advanced mathematics in UNSW. I was 1st in James Ruse for Chemistry as well as achieving 100% in the Australasian Problem Solving Mathematical Olympiad. But I wasn’t always doing well.I didn’t actually get into James Ruse on my first try, I only transferred to Ruse in year 9 from Penrith High School. I never understood the fundamentals of maths. Yet fast forward to the end of year 12, I’ve obtained a 99 and 97 for HSC maths extension 1 and extension 2 respectively.

By the end of year eight, I was comfortably in the bottom 30% of my James Ruse cohort, with my low of lows coming via a 40% performance in a science exam. I wasn’t just breaking down academically; like many young high schoolers, I was foolishly killing valuable time with video games.But, as year nine rolled around, the tide began to turn. By the end of Year 12 I was 2nd in Ext 2 Maths and achieved a 99.85.

Jonathan Tian

My story is probably the same as you, dear reader. Once an unmotivated and underachieving student, I found myself at the mercy of poor grades during the beginning of my time as a senior (Yr11~), ranking in the bottom half of the grade for maths and bottom for physics.However, upon Yr12 and the HSC looming overhead, with the invaluable assistance I received not only from fellow peers and teachers, I was able to achieve the results I did in what little time I had left.
