DESPITE the demands of being a teenager, juggling high school and studying hard for the looming TEE, Nathan Amaral stepped it up a notch recently with a stunning academic performance.

Nathan was one of four Wesley College students to recently graduate from Curtin University’s Accounting 100 unit, a program giving exceptional Year 12 accounting students the opportunity to complete a customised, industry-based accounting component.

He won the Denis Horgan Medal for the highest overall mark after blitzing the unit with a grade of 89 per cent.

Nathan (16) said the unit provided valuable industry experience, but he was undecided on his career pathway.

“I really enjoyed the course and it gave me a greater perspective of the job,” he said.

“I’ve been concentrating on my TEE exams and I haven’t decided on what I’ll study at university.

“I’m leaning towards law and commerce at UWA, focusing on investment and corporate finance, because I think it will be more challenging than accounting.”
