KORUMBURRA Secondary College “could not be prouder” of outgoing school captain Lachlan Snooks, who has achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 98.05 for his efforts throughout his final two years of secondary school, a result that puts him in the top 1.9 per cent highest achieving VCE students in the state.
Lachlan, along with thousands of other Year 12 students, logged on to the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre’s website early last Friday morning (December 14) to view his VCE results and said his whole family was very excited when the 98.05 was revealed.
“I logged in just before 7am and checked my ATAR with my parents and we were all pretty excited. It felt pretty awesome. It was a big relief,” he said.
With a keen interest in science, Lachlan said his goal throughout his VCE studies in Year 11 and 12 was to achieve an ATAR high enough to make him eligible for Monash University’s undergraduate medicine degree, the Bachelor of Medical Science.
Having achieved that goal, the final hurdle for entry to the course is a selection interview at the university in January.
