Gulgong High School Year 12 of 2012 have been praised for their performance in their HSC exams.
Of the 28 students that sat the tests there were six individual marks above 90 per cent, 26 individual marks above 80 per cent and 64 individual marks above 70 per cent.
Jared Phelps, Alana Drury and Jessica Holt were all placed on the NSW HSC Distinguished Achievers List by the NSW Board of Studies.
Jared gained marks of 95 per cent in Mathematics, 92 per cent in Mathematics Extension and 90 per cent in Engineering Studies.
Alana gained a mark of 90 per cent in Legal Studies and 89 per cent in Mathematics.
While Jessica gained a mark of 90 per cent in Mathematics.
This group of students already received over 20 offers early of entry to university courses of their choice before they even sat for these exams.
Principal Rob O’Connor said, “some of the results achieved by the students were truly outstanding and placed students from the school in the top echelons of student HSC achievement in NSW”.
“These results for the school reflect a wonderful relationship between the students, teachers and parents of the school community and all can be very proud of a job well done.
“And the early entries were awarded to our students after they had been identified by universities for their sustained diligence and effort over a number of years at our school.
“Several other students who have chosen not to go to university performed equally as well.”
