HSC nerves are almost a thing of the past for the graduating year of 2017, who received their results – but not their ATAR – on Thursday.
Despite some spectacular achievements Shire-wide, the ambition of many students left them still hungry to prove themselves, which can’t be a bad thing with university around the corner.
“I can’t complain, but I would have liked to have gone a little bit better,” Batemans Bay High School student Leonidas Katsanis said.
With two band sixes a swathe of band fives to his name, Mr Katsanis felt he had more potential in the finals.
“In the trials, I got much higher marks, but I can’t be unhappy, because the marks I have will get me to what I want to do,” he said.
Mr Katsanis maintained the philosophical attitude that has helped him through his HSC.
“I’m happy with the knowledge I’ve gained because that’s something that doesn’t go away,” he said.
“It cannot be represented by marks, and never will be.”
