Pipped at the post

Yvette Gilfillan

Pipped at the post by her best friend since Kindy.

Most people would be over the moon to receive an ATAR of 99.2, but that wasn’t quite the case for Yvette Gilfillan.

The 18-year-old Bachelor of Creative Arts student from Nowra came second to the woman she’d been best friends with since Kindergarten.

“She got an ATAR of 99.45 and Dux of the school. At a school ceremony, the Principal said to me ‘You must feel pipped at the post’, and I thought ‘Yeah, kinda…'”

Despite not being Dux of the school, Yvette was still happy to share valuable advice on how to succeed at the HSC with other students from her school who were set to sit the exams the following year.
