Fremantle girl on her way to study at prestigious Cambridge University

A FREMANTLE Year 12 graduate who made the coveted 99 Club last year has been accepted into one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

Charlotte Elton, who studied her way to a 99.70 ATAR to become John Curtin College of the Arts’ top graduate and one of the best in the state, has been accepted to do a double degree in sociology and political science at England’s prestigious Cambridge University.

Ms Elton said she could not wait to begin the experience of studying abroad.

“My family is English and I visited the campus at the start of Year 12 and once I’d been there I knew I wanted to study there,” she said.

“I started researching courses online and now there is no turning back.”

She said she learnt to keep a balance in her high school studies, something she would take with her to university.

“It was important for me to maintain my study life balance, I didn’t become a hermit and lose perspective,” she said.

“Success is related to being consistent across the whole year in all courses.”
