Tianna Collison, Rebecca Sinclair and Sam Reid are ready for the next step in thier lives.

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will be released tomorrow morning at 9am.

The ATAR is the rank NSW and ACT universities use to select school leavers for their courses.

Two students from Narromine High School have had the stress of the ATAR taken off having received early offers to universities.

Tianna Collison and Rebecca Sinclair have been offered positions at regional universities in NSW.

They are two of the seven NHS students to be given early offers.

Principal Michael Sloan said this is a great accomplishment.

“Students who apply for early entry needed to demonstrate commitment, leadership skills, community involvement and the ability to succeed as tertiary students,” he said.

“Congratulations, we wish you all the best in you tertiary studies.”

Rebecca is heading to Wagga Wagga.

“I’m going to uni to do Social Work at CSU,” she said.

Tianna is taking time off before resuming study.

“I’m going to take a gap year and travel around Australia and I’m deferring a criminal justice degree,” she said.

Like her friend, Sam Reid is also taking a year off.

“I’m going to travel up to Darwin to work,” she said.

The former NHS students are relieved and ecstatic to be finished school.

“(I feel) relief. No words can describe it,” Rebecca said.

They have also discovered a lot of spare time on their hands.

“I’m working,” Tianna said, “I also have a lot of spare time on my hands.”

Despite being pleased to be finished school the girls are going to miss some aspects of it.

“Seeing everyone everyday, we’ve taken it for granted,” Tianna said.

Students applying for tertiary study in 2015 have until Wednesday, January 7 to change their course preferences for consideration in the Main Round of offers on Wednesday, January 21.
