SUCCESS: David Ferris and Megan Vile.

TWO 14-year-olds who sat the Higher School Certificate this year gave their 17- and 18-year-old peers a run for their money.

St Philip's Christian College students Megan Vile and David Ferris were accelerated through school because of their abilities.

Megan received a UAI of 96.6 yesterday and David scored 95.6. Megan has applied to study human nutrition and dietetics at the University of Newcastle but is also interested in speech pathology.

Her mother will have to drive her to university because she will be too young to have a licence.

David wants to study maths and electrical engineering at university next year.
