THOUSANDS of high school graduates eagerly awaited the arrival of the first-round university offers on January 16.
And it was good news for Kyabram’s Duxes, who received their first preferences.
With an ATAR score of 89.0 Heidi Morris was offered a place for a Bachelor of Nursing and Midwifery at Deakin’s waterfront campus in Geelong.
While over at Kyabram P-12, Angus McKenzie was offered a Bachelor of Business and Victoria Gillie was offered a position in a bachelor degree of IT and Design, both at Monash.
Of the Victorian cohort, 52,973 offers to study were released with almost 76 per cent of those who applied receiving an offer.
Since November, VTAC has issued 58,806 offers to local applicants and 2547 offers to international applicants.
While the overall statistics represented a decrease of 3.4 per cent in the total number of applications, applications from Australian Year 12 students increased slightly by 0.5 per cent.
The second round of offers will be released February 2 for any students who missed out in this round.
