Received the results in China over the phone from my bro.

Mummy was proud of my achievement and boasted to my relatives :)

I wish I had gotten higher but anything over 90 is good.

I loved my parents' reaction.

See, the day before they saw my HSC results (mid-90s mostly) and they were like, OMG, she failed. We should've made her done tutoring, there's no hope for her now. Expecting 80s ATAR or something. They wouldn't trust me that my results were great.

Come ATAR and 99.9! =D

My mum hugged me but my dad had gone out so I called him:
ME: Dad... I failed... *scared voice* I got 99.9...
DAD: WOW! Wowza! Damn! Wow!!
Hahahahaha.

ahahahaha. My parent's friend's son got 84 atar, and my father was like: "that's so good!!!"
I'm sure they will be pleasantly surprised at my atar :haha: (I can keep dreaming for 99)

Lol I lied to my dad first.

I was like "Sorry dad but I got 95"

And the look he gave me was priceless, it looked like he was about to cry.

Then I was like "Just playing you dad i got 99.5"

And he was happy :) But seriously high expectations much, 95 is failing for him...

But afterwards, he asked me what my friend X got, and I was like "99.85" and he was "I don't think you studied enough. You went to the same school as this boy why didn't you beat him?"

LOL it's a freaking competition for my dad -.- Seriously sometimes I even think he's living through me...

My mum was really happy :) She was with me when I got the result. The best thing was the few days before this I basically told her that I didn't expect to be able to get into law straight off. On top of this I forgot my BoS pin so I couldn't check my marks beforehand. So yeah she was thrilled :)
This really is making me appreciate my Dad's 'the HS-what?' approach.

I was overseas at the time when the results came out. Naturally, my parents opened the UAC letter and saw my ATAR. So when I called them from a temple at HK my mum was screaming on the phone:

mum: YOU GOT 98.05. THAT'S 98.05 OKAY?
me: ==' thanks, yeah i know mum.
mum: we couldn't believe it. We didn't know you were that smart! Congrats!

So anticlimatic!
I thought they don't send the ATARs though? Only the HSC marks?
