Zoe Oliver (pictured above, 18, achieved two As in Law and Geography and a B in Maths. She said: “I’m over the moon with my results and I’m so excited.

Georgia Murphy, 19, who achieved three As in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at AS Level, said: “I’m absolutely astounded to have done so well. I’ve got one more year and then I’m planning on going to university to study either biochemistry or natural sciences.”
