Zachary’s dream, but work to come
ST JOSEPH'S College student Zachary Wyper gained early entry into his "dream course" - engineering, with honours in electrical engineering through Griffith University.
"I've always been interested in science and maths, and it really puts the two together," he said.
Mr Wyper applied with reports from Years 11 and 12 to meet the prerequisites.
"I did three unit maths, which is extension maths and ... at the end of year 12 I had all As and Bs.
"I had a good idea that I already met the pre-requisites but I still worked pretty hard going towards the exams, just in case."
However, Mr Wyper warned that early entry was not an easy ticket into university.
"You still have to work hard all the way through from Year 7," he said.
"If you slack off you won't have the work ethic to carry it all the way through Year 11 and 12."
