Gracie is dreaming big after receiving first uni preference
GRADUATED Gladstone State High School student Gracie Charlton has an exciting time ahead.
She'll be moving to live on campus in Townsville, where many of her friends are also going, and she will be able to do field work with her first preference of a Bachelor of Advanced Science at James Cook University.
Ms Charlton (pictured) got an OP 2 and she said the trick was to choose subjects you enjoyed and manage time.
"You just have to have it planned out," she said.
"If you want to have a break, do something you really enjoy, like sport and exercise, and then get on to your study straight away."
Ms Charlton is dreaming big for her future.
"I would like to go into consulting with environmental management for bigger businesses to help them find a way to reduce their impact on the earth," she said.
"I'm just really going to miss Gladstone and Gladstone State High School."
