A student from Perth Modern School has won WA’s top academic prize, the Beazley Medal, for the second year in a row.

Hui Min Tay, 17, was named the State’s best all-round student for excelling academically across five subjects, including two each from the humanities and maths and sciences.

“I was really surprised when I heard,” she said.

“I’m still finding it hard to believe.”

Chemistry was her favourite subject, earning her a scaled score of 100.33 in the WA Certificate of Education exams.

She also blitzed mathematics specialist (102.39), ancient history (101.58), physics (101.55), mathematics (99.36), literature (95.47) and modern history (89.68).

She earned course exhibitions for achieving the top mark in the State in three subjects - ancient history, chemistry and physics.

The Riverton teen was also among a handful of students who achieved the highest possible Australian Tertiary Admission Rank of 99.95.

Hui Min said she plans to study undergraduate science before deciding whether to aim for a career in science or medicine.

Last year’s Beazley Medal winner, Jamin Wu, was also from Perth Modern, which is WA’s only fully-selective academic school.
