Former Samaritan College student Zander Engelbrecht will receive a SACE merit for biology. Two local students will be rewarded for their hard work and dedication to year 12 tomorrow.
Former Samaritan College student Zander Engelbrecht and Edward John Eyre High School student Richard Engelke will both receive merit awards at the SACE Merit Ceremony at Government House in Adelaide on Tuesday, February 10.
Zander will be receiving a merit for his biology subject while Richard will receive one for mathematical studies.
The awards come as no surprise as the boys received the highest Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR) scores in the city.
Zander was the city’s highest scorer with an ATAR of 98.90, while Richard was close second with his score of 98.15.
Zander has applied for universities in Queensland with the hope of beginning his studies interstate.
An incredibly hard worker, Zander took on an extra subject externally to be able to get the best results he could.
“It’s been a very stressful year, I’ve found it very hard but very rewarding,” he said.
Both of the students are hoping to further their education in the medical industry having both undertaken the Undergraduate Medical Admissions Test (UMAT) prior to the end of 2014.
A record 874 students will receive certificates for a total of 1172 subject merits for outstanding achievement in SACE Stage 2 subjects for 2014.
This compares with 828 students and 1117 subject merits for the previous year.
