What are you doing now and where?
I’m currently studying Bachelor of Commerce (Actuarial major) at University of Melbourne.
Do you feel that BVIS prepared you well for your academic and work career?
Yes it did. I do not have to spend a year for Foundation because I already have a foundation for some of my course’s subjects, such as Accounting or Management, from through the A Level subjects I studied at BVIS. Therefore, I can understand the lectures and prepare for my tutorials easily.
What do you miss most about the BVIS?
I miss my friends and teachers. It is not easy to make friends in university, unlike in high school, because there is a diversity of students from different countries, whose cultures are different from ours. Moreover, lecturers and tutors in university are not as close to students as high school teachers.
What skills did you learn at BVIS that you found helpful in your ‘life after BVIS’?
For me, writing skills in A Levels Business helped me a lot in doing my assignments at the university: the ability to analyse questions, to structure my writing and to select appropriate language, amongst other helpful things.
