Best wishes for interviews and HSC study days
HSC: Posted 20-9-13 Deadline - No Deadline
If you are travelling to visit colleges or universities, attending interviews or HSC revision days have a safe journey and I wish you all the best as we start the final lap for the HSC. Do what you can. It really is true that every extra mark helps your HSC results and your ATAR so whatever you do or can do, is to your advantage. My wish for all of Year 12 is that they have no regrets when they get their results and ATAR that they did not try hard enough or put enough effort in.
