After achieving a university entry rank of 99.95, winning fifth place in the state for chemistry and a place at the University of Sydney studying medicine, the former Abbotsleigh student Sarah Hui Xin Wong believed she could have done better in the HSC.
Sarah’s mother, Eileen, lodged complaint after complaint to the school and to the Board of Studies since Sarah completed the HSC in 2008, arguing her daughter was discriminated against.
Yesterday, Ms Wong lost her appeal against a decision by the NSW Board of Studies not to grant her special examination provisions in the form of a computer and extra exam time for the 2008 Higher School Certificate.
I’m just posting this cause I want to use the High Expectations Asian Father meme. And I feel bad for the Ms Wong. With such a low score she will obviously be flipping burgers for the rest of her life. Poor thing.
