BALLARAT Grammar twins Clara and Joe Toohey have had a big year at school and now they’re waiting for their VCE scores.
The ATAR score – the results of the 2013 year 12s across Victoria – will be released on Monday by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre.
Clara is hoping to get into arts at Melbourne University, majoring in international studies.
“I’ll take next year off though ... on December 30 I’m flying to Canada to work in the ski fields.”
She said year 12 had been her favourite year, being the oldest student in the school.
“I’ve been so busy and had so much going on there wasn’t time to stop and think to get stressed,” she said.
“It’s been good because I haven’t been studying all the time, but when I have it’s been short and sharp.”
She said the hardest thing would be to get so close and to miss out.
Joe is hoping he will get into business at Deakin
University in Geelong.
“I don’t really have a plan B, so I hope I’ll get in.”
He said there hadn’t been any sibling rivalry throughout the year, just a little inspiration. “Every so often, when I’d see Clara studying, it’d get me to do some more.”
