Emma scored 3 A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry and an A in Physics – which added to her haul of 5 As at AS and 11 A *s at GCSE.

Emma Moreby is now off to study Chemistry at Oxford after a clean sweep of As and A*s at A level, AS and GCSE.

Emma is off on holiday later today to celebrate before starting at Oxford in October.

Despite being predicted the grades she eventually received, Emma had a moment of doubt: She said:

“Overall the exams went well and I didn’t have any disasters but during the wait I started doubting. I’ve been at Newcastle High since I was seven years old and I am quite sad to be leaving, but I’ve been ready to go to University for so long and I can now finally start preparing for Oxford.

Emma is a keen musician and plays both the guitar and piano as well as writing her own songs. “Oxford has a good music scene and I can’t wait to get started.”
