Default End of a chapter

So today I received my final high school marks.

I ranked in the top 4.65% of students in the country.

My parents and I were quite disappointed, but oh well.

This score will get my into my first preference of course at university in the next year - a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Science double degree at the Australian National University.

It's a 4 year course and at its denouement, I will either begin working in the banking/finance sector, or move on to further education (law or medicine, hopefully at Harvard).

I'm looking forward to the future eagerly and can't wait to embark on the next chapter of my life.

I hope there is a Lamborghini tucked away somewhere for me!

Congratulations. Top 5% is a good census to be in.

That is great man. No matter what your parents think, you should be very proud.

Nice job. Keep pushing it the next few years and you'll have positioned yourself nicely.

It's amazing how many people in college are lazy. If you have some smarts (sounds like you do) and motivation, it isn't hard to make yourself stand out.

Just finished my Fall semester on Friday, instantly the weights were lifted right off my shoulders.

Being in the top 5% isn't too bad, but I really messed up during exams. I ranked in the top 0.1% of my country for one of my four subjects, English, but didn't do almost as well for the others. Still, I'm not complaining - as I will get into the course of my choice easily.

Thank you, they are quite proud, although they were expecting me to do a lot better.

Thanks for the kind words - I intend to work very hard during my university studies. Congratulations on finishing up, and I definitely know what you mean by the weight being lifted off your shoulders!

Good luck in Uni!

Remember this:

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race” ~ Calvin Coolidge (30th President of the US, 1923-1929)

CONGRATS Verde!! Wow..your parents are tough! You should be extremely proud of yourself!

I was brought up in a pretty strict (Military family w/ Warrant Officer -Pilot (Father) & Brig. General (Grandfather) and I can tell you that intelligence is NOT necessarily based on a test score or ranking (albeit...you don't have this problem)...just curious as to what your parents ranked in the country??

My parents are very proud of me, but they were surprised that I ranked in the top 4.65% considering I was well on track to ranking in the top 1% at minimum. I was also quite surprised, to be honest.

Wow - it sounds like your family would have been very strict! You're absolutely right about intelligence not being based on a test score or ranking though.

My parents were actually born in Bulgaria to Turkish families. My mum moved to Turkey with her family in her teens and my dad left Bulgaria and moved around Europe for a few years (he actually spent a few years in Italy) before moving to Turkey and meeting my mum. They then got married and moved here.

They're very hard-working small business owners and really value education. That's why I was lucky enough to go to high-school at the first or second I think most expensive private schools in Australia.

I accepted an offer from The University of Melbourne in their Bachelor of Commerce degree.

It's the number 1 university in Australia and their BComm degree is number 1 in all of Asia-Pacific, I believe. I feel so proud to be able to see that I'm doing this prestigious degree after graduating from one of the most elite private schools in the country. I say that with absolute humility, by the way.
