This duo proves a class act



JOHN Parr and John Quinn are still in celebration mode after achieving the highest overall position (OP) scores of 1.

The respective North Rockhampton State High School students were among hundreds of Year 12 students who just could not wait on the postman to deliver their results.

Mr Parr, 18, phoned the results hotline about 12.30am on Saturday after a friend tipped him off that it was already open.

"I was pretty stoked,'' Mr Parr said.

"That (OP 1) was the goal.''

Mr Parr needed an OP 2 to get into the pharmacy undergradu- ate course at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.

Mr Quinn, 17, also found out that the results hotline had opened earlier than expected and phoned as soon as he woke on Saturday morning.

"I'm absolutely delighted,'' he said.

"I'm guaranteed to get in (to engineering at Central Queens- land University) now and I can't wait until next year.''

If you received an OP1 please contact news editor Frazer Pearce today either via phone (4930 4282) or email (tmbully@capnews.com.au).
