THREE Scots PGC students will swap their pencil cases for stethoscopes after they were given the thumbs up to study medicine when the first round of QTAC offers was released yesterday.

Scots PGC director of learning Nigel Grant said 2012 graduate Elliese Ackermann, daughter of local GP Evan, had been given provisional entry into the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery program at the University of Queensland, while twins Amy and Emily Edwards were off to Townsville to start their medical degrees at James Cook University.

Late last year Elliese - who was the dux of Scots PGC - told the Daily News about her enthusiasm for studying in the highly competitive course.

"I have always wanted to be a doctor and I think the human body is so fascinating," she said.

"I would love to get into oncology because something has to be done about cancer and I may as well be trying."

Mr Grant said the school was celebrating the various successes of all of the school-leavers, but yesterday extended particular congratulations to those who had achieved the goals they set for university entrance.

"These great outcomes are a credit to the hard work of the students, as well as the support they received from their parents and teachers," he said.

Others to have received first preference offers included Dancey Gordon (Film & Screen Media Production at Griffith University), Michelle Thompson (Speech Pathology at UQ), Ashleigh Fearby (Education (PE) at the University of Southern Queensland) and Lachlan Jackson (Pharmacy at UQ).

Glenna Marletto (also pictured) is travelling in the USA but Mr Grant said given she received an OP2, she was likely to be able to study whatever she liked.
