An excited Annabel said: “I haven’t slept all night, but I’m so excited now! I’ve got what I thought I was going to get so I’m very happy. I’m also so pleased that my friends have done so well and achieved or done better than they thought. I’ll probably do Geography, Economics and Spanish in September.
Emily added: “My results are what I was expecting so I’m over the moon. I’m going to pursue a career in medicine so it will be the sciences for me next year.”
