The two students, ages seventeen and sixteen, are now studying physics and math at SJC’s Junior College. News Five spoke to the students today, who say that preparing for the exams had its own challenges, but they were ready.

“It was extremely hectic especially about all the SBA’s that we had to do. I remember stressing over the Geography and Social Studies SBA’s, those were the ones that were very tedious because we had to carry out the surveys and what not, many late nights studying as well. It was very stressful but it was something that I enjoyed doing. I liked it really.”
