How do you feel now the HSC is over, and what is next for you?
Brydie Hilder Year 12 Red Bend Catholic College: It feels amazing to have finished. I’m not too nervous about getting the results, it is what it is. I’ve been accepted for early entry into Nursing at the University of Wollongong, but I’m
deferring so I can take a gap year. I’m planning on staying around town and working, I’d love to travel a bit too.
Lyndal Suffolk Year 12 Parkes Christian School: Mostly I feel relaxed – it’s a big weight off having it done. I moved from Queensland where it’s a completely different system, so the HSC was a shock and quite stressful. Next year is a little up in the air; I’m planning on doing RN, either in Brisbane, Bathurst or Dubbo. I already have a Cert II in Health Service Assistance, which I did through TVET as part of my studies.
Kaitlyn Strudwick Year 12 Parkes Christian School: I feel relieved! I’m the first one in my immediate family to have
done the HSC. There were moments when it was really hard, and then others when it felt a bit easier than it was meant to. Next year I’m going to do my Cert III in Early Childhood and see what happens from there.
