Studying: Year 13
"There's no time limit. No right or wrong way to study, and at the end of the day your ATAR may become as useful as an avocado in the summer sun."
Some people know what they want to do when they’re 12 years old. Others will plough through four university degrees and still have no idea. Most people are somewhere in between, so study smart.

Year 13 is like the online dating site for your education. Let us find your perfect match so you and your desired course can have a long and sexy relationship.
