In 2023, Amy achieved three A Levels  A* A* A in her Cambridge A Level Exams (equivalent of 99.2+) and gained full entry to Oxford University in the UK, where she is now studying. Congratulations Amy!

What contributed to your final year and/or your success?

I choose Cambridge as a pathway because I thought it was better suited to applying for universities overseas than either the HSC or IB. That’s because It’s international, meaning a lot of UK universities more readily acknowledge it than the HSC. The Cambridge exams schedule also fits better with the academic schedule of UK universities eg with A Levels you finish in June, meaning that if you are accepted you can enter university in October of that same year. Whereas with the HSC you have to wait until the following year, after you receive your results.

NB Cambridge International A Levels are highly specialised subjects. A Levels are equivalent to and take the place of the HSC. They are the ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge, and act as entry qualifications for universities around the world.

We are very proud of Amy's wonderful achievement, achieving A* for Further Mathematics, A* for Computer Science and A* for Pure Mathematics.
