“I’m really excited to start studying A Levels in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths, and would like to study Medicine at university.”

With a clean sweep of 11 Level 9 grades in subjects such as Maths, Further Maths, Geography, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Chinese, Annabella Chau said: “I feel relieved about my results. My grades were better than I expected so I am very happy about them!”

Also achieving 11 Level 9 grades in French, Greek, Latin, History, English and English Literature among others, Dina Power said: “I’m very shocked and very happy. My results were a great thing to wake up to this morning. Some of my grades very much surprised me – in a good way!
