I think that makes it certain you get in but I could be wrong
Pretty much agree with you here! I had friends that applied for the program last year and were the only ones from their school and got in! On their website, it states that "at least one Young Scholar will be selected from each Victorian school" (if they put in at least one application) so if you are the only one to apply, you have a pretty big (but not absolutely certain) chance of getting in ;D

That's exciting to hear. I doubt that anyone at my school will apply, so hopefully, I will have a good chance if I do.

of her freedom once more

soars in blue
basks in the light
leaving nothing
but notes behind

she is never going
back in that cage

I think you're almost certainly guaranteed a place then, if you think no one else is applying. I was the only one in my school who put in an application in year 10 and got in, and my "resume" wasn't even that impressive.

Hey,
I was just wondering, what's the max number of students that can be accepted from each school.

But wasn't it 5 students that can be endorsed by the school, i.e: 5 students submit applications but not all are accepted.
So, I was wondering max students that are accepted from each school.

I've applied for Kwong Lee Dow this year. Did anyone else do the same? For me it was particularly a struggle to get my school's endorsement because I was moving schools. It would be kind of unfair to me personally if they refused endorsement because the school couldn't benefit from it, but luckily they changed their minds last second. It was so hard to answer the question about what I thought my most important achievement was, I just picked a few and spun into a favourable narrative. Hopefully all goes well and I make it through!

Hey there,

I'm pretty sure applications have closed for this year (the 2021 graduating cohort).
How it works is you speak to your teachers about your interest in the program and they nominate up to 5 Year 10s in your school. Then you fill in an online form with questions relating to your extracurricular activites, awards / prizes, achievements, life and future study goals although it is worth noting that these might vary each year.
I guess the biggest tip I could give is to treat the application as if you're applying for a job and sell yourself, but make sure you are honest.

Usually just 1 per school (2 is quite rare from what I've heard and usually that happens in schools with a very strong cohort).

Results should be out, I've received an email already. Got in :D

I think out of the 5 that were endorsed I was the only one that got in.

Congratulations! I got in too.  :) I found it weird that the website said they would release results on Friday and then they sent them out yesterday but whatever, I'm happy I got in.
