A few seconds ago I quickly browsed through todays edition of our local newspaper Pforzheimer Zeitung. One headline stated that at my former school a 14 years old girl completed the leaving examination with the best possible mark -- a 1.0! She is this years youngest high school absolvent in whole Germany, and probably the best as well, too :). Now, she don't wants to concentrate too much on the book she is currently writing (IIRC this book is about the high school system and how it can be improved), but instead wants to concrentrate on her studies. Her plan is to study medicine in Heidelberg, one of the famoust universities for medicine in Germany (and probably world wide as well!?). When will she finish? In two years, or three years? :)
There's even an online article about this story. If you can read German...
