No pressure...yet

WATERVIEW Heights teenager Luke Cox is taking the relaxed approach to the Higher School Certificate, which begins on Tuesday.

Luke, a South Grafton High student, is planning to pick up his study over the weekend, admitting he has not kept pace with students in the study stakes.

"I've done a bit of study, but not that much," he said.

"I haven't done as much as my friends. They're pretty intense on their study."

Luke says he is not an academic student, favouring subjects such as woodwork and sports, lifestyle and recreation.

Life after the HSC should be just as relaxed for Luke.

"Whatever happens, happens," he said.

"I might get a job, I might go to uni. I'll take it as it comes."

So relaxed is Luke, he has not looked at his timetable - English, biology, woodwork, construction, agriculture and SLR - beyond the opening English exam.

"I'm pretty relaxed about it all - at the moment," he said.
