With her place on the Art Foundation course already secured at the prestigious Central St Martins in London, Zoe Rankin was relieved that she didn’t have the same pressure as others when receiving her results today but was still eager to see the outcome of her efforts.

And with the top mark of A* in all three A Levels, English, Theatre Studies and Textiles, the talented art student was elated at the culmination of all of her hard work. Zoe said:

“While acceptance onto the course at Central St Martins was not dependent on my grades, I still wanted to do well in my A Levels. It has been hard to gauge during the pandemic whether I was working hard enough and without exams you don’t get the same sense of knowing how well you have performed.  It’s such a relief to see the results today and I am absolutely delighted with my English result.  I was more confident about doing well in Drama and Textiles so am really pleased to get an A* in English as well!”

Zoe was offered a place on the foundation course at Central St Martins earlier in the year after sending her portfolio of work to the renowned art school and she is hoping that she will have the opportunity to get onto the Fashion Design degree so that she can eventually pursue a career in the fashion industry.

She added: “I have always wanted to have a job that I can enjoy so that work doesn’t feel like work as such, just something I love doing.”
