Today, I had the opportunity to work with The Age for their ATAR results day coverage.
As part of the experience, I attended the press conference of Education Minister James Merlino, and interviewed a Year 12 student from Maribyrnong Secondary College about her results.
Here is the section of the live blog that I worked on with Education Reporter Timna Jacks:
Most Year 12 students checked their results bang on 7am this morning (assuming they weren’t part of the 2000 who got theirs early last week).
But Carmen Tan managed to hang on for almost three more hours and opened her results in the presence of education minister James Merlino.
Education reporter Timna Jacks and reporter Tara Cosoleto were also there the moment Ms Tan got her results:
