    "BRAINY TRIO AMONG TOP FIVE IN COUNTRY


    09:30 - 22 August 2003

    Beverley: Dieter Iveson and Eliott Johnson were amazed to find out they were among the top five in the country in their subjects.

    Eliott shared top marks in English literature with fellow pupil James Piper.

    That means two of the top five students in the country, from an entry of 379,000, came from Beverley Grammar.

    All three recorded exceptional grades across the board.

    Business studies ace Dieter, 16, of Colleridge Grove, Beverley, scored nine A* grades and one A.

    He said: "I was quite surprised. I was predicted similar grades but didn't expect to do so well.

    "I was a nice surprise and I'm delighted."

    He is now looking forward to a challenging two years in the sixth form, when he will take A-levels in biology, chemistry, physics, maths and further maths.

    Eliott, 16, of Sloe Lane, Beverley, also achieved nine A*s and one A.

    He said: "I'm really pleased. I didn't start revising too early but I put in a lot of work over the two years."

    James, also 16, of Cherry Burton, scored an amazing 10 A* grades."

    so go out, get drunk, get high and enjoy it. don't stay in and tell complete strangers on the internet how chuffed you are. Seriously, it's a bit annoying.

    I really am starting to agree with tek and onlywee, you have to stop boasting and blowing your own trumpet and get on with it, not only is your behaviour getting at people like me but it is sooooooo rude to be doing this when there are people out there who got 5 C's a D and an F and are really pleased with that - you are belittling their acheivement and that is not FAIR! Also as Tek says things are gonna get so much harder soon, and when you've got a Nobel Prize then nobody will mind you going on about it but its only GCSE results - I got 11 A* but I found AS levels tough so please give it a rest and work hard on preparing for the rest of your life where there is no oppurtunity to boast to strangers on the internet about your achievements- many will go totally unnoticed in later life - my parents are doctors and they save lives with no recognition on a daily basis - yet they don't boast!

    First, I would like to congratulate you but I have to agree with the last two posts. Please could you try and tone down the comments on your results.
    I am really happy with my results (5 A*s, 4 As and a B), but it is very easy to feel a bit disappointed when somebody who gets like straight A*s keeps shoving their results in your face.

    I really dont mean to be offensive.....again well done with your results.

    That's a useful point from above, James. If you end up at a top university such as Oxbridge no one will praise your achievements, you will just be expected to do well all the time and contribute to academic life in a constructive way. It's one of the hardest lessons between GCSEs and the time you leave school - you must learn to be successful without the need for constant reassurance and praise from your contemporaries.

    I know you're happy, and you should be! Sorry if what I'm saying seems harsh, but it will be very difficult for you if you start uni without being able to be quietly confident in your own abilities.

    We all run the risk of sounding really nasty and harsh to Juxtapiped and I think we are all very happy for him and his results, however I think he does need to consider what some people have said.

    erm what is juxtapiped? must come from somewhere.....pokemon?
    not trying to be offensive but i think ive heard of that name before....digimon?

    Jess, I agree entirely with you. I am also quite irrated with the constant wave of comments on his results.
    I think things like posting a link to see his GCSE artwork was quite a big-headed thing to do also, whilst it was good, I too got an A* in art yet I dont feel the need to shove it in peoples faces and boast about it.
