Lismore student achieves rare double in HSC

Janelle Saffin MP has congratulated Lismore student Mya Stanley on topping two HSC courses statewide and recognised the combined efforts of all HSC students, their teachers, parents and caregivers.

THE Rivers Secondary College Kadina High Campus student Mya Stanley, pictured, is being celebrated for achieving outright first and equal first in two of her 2023 Higher School Certificate courses.

Mya topped the Business Service Examination and was equal first with 13 others in Mathematics Standard 2.

She is among the 128 students from across the state who have achieved some of the best results possible in at least one HSC course.

Mya’s rare double in twice making the prestigious list reflects the talent, hard work and skillset on display across regional New South Wales, State Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin said.

“I have no doubt that Mya will go on to achieve amazing things in future,” Ms Saffin said.

“While the First in Course ceremony held in Sydney highlighted our high achievers, we must also recognise the families and communities who supported all of our latest graduates in achieving their best.

“Teachers are a core part of our community, who support all of our students to achieve their very best – whether that be first in a course, or a personal success.” 

Some 77,000 students who sat at least one exam in 2023 received their results by SMS, email and Students Online on Thursday, 14 December 2023.

All Round Achievers, Top Achievers and Distinguished Achievers were be published on the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) website on the same date.

A recording of the First in Course ceremony is available to view on the NESA website.
