After graduating from CCS in July 2017, I applied for top universities in Australia, such as the University of New South Wales in Sydney (UNSW) and the Australian National University in Canberra (ANU). I’m glad to say that I made it into my first choice in October, the University of Sydney, studying in a very competitive degree in Economics with a secondary major in Psychology. Its competitive as the New South Wales education ranking system selects students who scored in the top 10% of the state to study Economics at USYD. With my IB score equated to an ATAR of 93.45, which was in the top 7% of the state. I am currently in the process of trying to transfer degrees, to put more emphasis into Psychology and a second major in either International studies or continuing a minor focus in Economics. Additionally, I’m a Resident Assistant for Australia’s largest student accommodation, with 800 undergraduate and postgraduate students living in the accommodation called Queen Mary Building.
CCS and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme have given me opportunities to learn much more in tertiary education, whilst exploring myself as a person as well. They challenged me all throughout my time there and I left CCS with academic scores better than I expected. CCS made me into a well-rounded student, and more caring and compassionate to others due to CCS’ strong sense of community.
