We were particularly pleased with our 2012 HSC students' excellent results. As it is our motto to realise your potential it was especially rewarding to observe our students improve over the time they spent with us. Below are some of the comments our students have made after having received their results, as well as the results themselves.

Adam (97.30) - Killara High School
I managed to get 85% in English Advanced, which is better than I could have ever imagined. Without this result, I doubt I would have gotten my ATAR of 97.30. This secured my spot in my first preference course at UNSW and also my Science Award Scholarship worth $6000 (YAY!). Thank you so much for teaching me everything I needed to know and helping me overcome my apathy towards English.
Amber - Oxford Falls
Wanted to let you know that Amber got an ATAR of 91 which we are thrilled with and also got 91 (band 6) for Advanced English. I remember you saying you could get her from an 80 to a 90 and you certainly have! Thankyou so much for all you have done. - Vivienne (Mother of Amber)
Catherine (96.55) - Pymble Ladies' College
Walter, I wanted to let you know how I went. I got 89 in English Advanced which I was stoked about! I got an ATAR of 96.55 so I’ll definately get into my first preference at UNSW. Thank you SO much for all your help over the last year.
Elloise (91.90) - Barker College
I’d just like to express my gratitude for your help this year in Extension English and Advanced English. I started the year with 83 in Advanced English and 86 in Extension English and after receiving my results on Wednesday I received 92/100 for my Advanced English mark, and for Extension English I achieved 46/50 - 92%. My ATAR was 91.90 which means I get into my first uni preference at UTS for Visual Communications combined with an International study (my ultimate goal all year). Thanks to you and Tom. I couldn't be any happier with my marks, I'm over the moon and so are my family. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Jordan - Knox Grammar School
Walter!! I need to say thank you, I got 85% in English! So happy, thank you so much for helping me achieve this mark.
Katie (84.75) - Pymble Ladies' College
I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone at Smart Moves, who helped me achieve my final results in the HSC. Thank you for putting in so much extra time and really pushing me toward improving my marks. Walter, Mel, and Jack helped me improve so much in my General Maths and Standard English courses. I achieved a band five for both Standard English and General Maths, which I wouldn't have been able to accomplish without their dedication to seeing me reach my potential. This helped me achieve my ATAR of 85.75 which has allowed me to be accepted to Sydney University to study a B of Health Sciences and a M of Nursing.
Phoebe - Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College
I just wanted to say to Walter and the team at Smart Moves thanks so much for all your effort over the past couple of years. My English has improved so much – results came out today and I got a band 5, which I was stoked with and wouldn’t have believed possible in year 11. This was such a good feeling!
90 in English Extension 1, an ATAR of 92.75.
90 in Advanced English.
91 in Advanced English.

Hannah (85.00) - Wenona
I was very pleased with my results and, as it turns out, English was my best subject - achieving a band 5. My ATAR was 85.00 which was what I needed to get into my uni course so I am stoked. I would like to thank all those at Smart Moves who enabled me to achieve this.
I managed to get a band 4 in Advanced English and I am so happy with that! My examination mark was 80, Assessment mark was 73 and my HSC mark is 77. I'm so happy and would like to say a special thank you to Walter because I wouldn't have been able to get through my course without his help.
Thank you so much for tutoring me this year, you have been an amazing help. I really admire your knowledge and teaching skills. Thank you again.

Dear Walter, Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all your help and support during my GRE exam preparations! I will keep you updated to see if I do end up in NYC or not! (Julie achieved her goal of entry into NYC)
Thankyou Walter so very much for all you have done for James throughout 2006. Your assistance and guidance has greatly benefited him in many ways. Enjoy a well earned rest over the festive season! - Sue (Mother of James)
We'd love to make mention of all our students' HSC Achievements but unfortunately there are far too many outstanding results to list!
