First in Family for HSC - Kumon Completer Receives ATAR of 99.6

Kumon Maths Completer and Sydney Boys High School graduate, Anthony Rusli, joins Top 1% of Australia high school students with ATAR of 99.6.

Originally from Indonesia, Anthony is the first in his family to sit the HSC. He started studying the Kumon Maths Programme as a child in Jakarta and resumed his Kumon Maths studies in Sydney in Year 10. Anthony completed the Kumon Maths Programme in 2015, allowing him to utilise the full benefits of the course in his 2016 HSC year.

‘I found that the regular study you need during the entire HSC is something that I was able to cope with largely due to my experience with Kumon that requires, by its nature, regular study every night’ he said.

As well as regular study habits, Anthony found that he had the advantage of quick thinking on his side. ‘Kumon trains thinking at fast speeds because you’re able to think logically. I think it helped me to complete the HSC exams at a faster rate and allow me to check for mistakes more efficiently.’ He used his speed advantage to finish two HSC subjects a year early, accelerating in both Business Studies and Mathematics 2 Unit.

Anthony hopes to study Bachelor or Commerce doubled with a Bachelor of Economics at UNSW, which this year required an ATAR of 96.50.

‘I’m very fortunate that my ATAR will allow me to get into a commerce degree. In the future I might like to work in the finance sector. I like to think of myself as a very social person and am very drawn to the idea of improving the world through my social interactions’.

Anthony studied at the Kumon Florence St Education Centre in Hornsby under his Instructor Chia-Khin Soon who has been delivering Kumon Programmes in Maths and English since 2008.

We wish him the very best for his future!
