Many students were offered an early entry to university with 97% of students in Year 12 2022 receiving at least one early offer (not including the Schools Recommendation Scheme). This result is based upon those students who responded to the destination survey. 67 students received offers through the UAC Schools Recommendation Scheme and 64 students received offers from Macquarie University through the Leaders and Achievers program.

Congratulations to the Class of 2022 who have been able to achieve their ambitions through their commitment to excellence in completing their HSC. The next stages of their journeys are full of promise and excitement. We look forward to hearing more from them as they complete their university courses.
