An anxious wait will end for Colac and district Year 12 graduates today, with universities releasing the first round of course offers.
Students received Year 12 results on December 12 last year and lodged their course preferences by December 20, ahead of the release of course offers at 2pm today.
Colac Secondary College graduate Nicholas Lenehan-Anderson said he hadn’t given too much thought to today’s big reveal.
“It’s come up pretty quick,” Nick said.
“I think I’ll be fine, I’m usually not too bad with that sort of thing but I am a little nervous,” he said.
“But overall I’m feeling pretty confident because I got the enter score that was needed for my course last year.”
Nick said he was disappointed when he first received his results, but ultimately was pleased he got a score high enough for his preferred course.
“I was a little bit disappointed initially, I would have liked to crack into the 90s, but I can’t really complain with an 87, so I’m pretty happy,” he said.
Nick said he wanted to study a double degree in law and commerce at Geelong’s Deakin University.
“When I started doing legal studies in Year 10, I really started to love the law side of things and then I started doing accounting the next year and I couldn’t really choose between the two, so I thought why not do both,” he said.
