Faiza Choudhury

Top 20 student

Faiza Choudhury was one of six Darwin High School students in the Territory's top twenty with an NTCET score of 98.1 and an ATAR of 84.85. 

Faiza admits her final year of study was not without its challenges.

The most challenging part of Year 12 was trying to complete all my assessments to the best of my ability and at the same time maintain the motivation to keep going, when really at times I just wanted to know what my ATAR was going to be and what I will be doing the next year.

Fazia was also an active member of the schools Leadership Group and volunteered her time at many community events. She was recognised as a recipient of the Royal Australian Regiment Award for Civic Duty and Representation in Commemoration Events at the schools 2019 Presentation Night. 

In 2017 Faiza was one of fifteen students from the Territory selected to participate in the 2018 Chief Minister's ANZAC Spirit Study Tour. In 2017 Faiza was one of fifteen students from the Territory selected to participate in the 2018 Chief Minister's ANZAC Spirit Study Tour.

Past and future studies

Faiza studied Biology, Chemistry, English Literacy, Human Biology and Mathematical Methods to complete her NTCET and credits the learning environment created by her teachers for her result.

My favourite subjects were Biology, English Literary Studies and Human Biology. I had amazing teachers who made learning fun and were very supportive. 

At the 2019 NTCET Results Release ceremony Faiza was recognised by the Honourable Selan Uibo MLA, Minsiter for Education, as one of the Territory's Top 20 students.

Faiza has been accepted into the University of Adelaide to study medicine. 

Completing year 12 with results good enough to give me opportunities to study my dream course. However, I think that achievement comes alongside me being able to greatly improve my performance in tests and exams by the end of the year, being able to breakdown my fear of Chemistry and improve my grades, and also keeping up the motivation to continue my studies and extra-curricular activities. 

Her advice to Year 12 students is to set a goal and stay motivated.

Don’t give up, don’t leave university applications to the last minute, and use the study guide to prepare for tests and exams. For those year 12s sitting the UCAT and being fearful of the results, you might even decide not to open the results email until you have completed your last assessment, so then even if your score is bad it won’t affect your grades and demotivate you, and you might even be in for a pleasant surprise when you do finally open it! Also make sure that your end of year 12 holiday plans don't clash with possible university interview dates. 
I would recommend Darwin High School, the teachers at Darwin High School are very supportive and help you achieve your best results, and the students are very motivated and contribute to lively and vibrant school community, making Darwin High a great place to learn and grow. Faiza Choudhury
