Molly O’Brien, Gosforth, Newcastle

A* in Maths, As in Biology and Economics.

Going on to study Economics at Trinity College, Cambridge

Molly O’Brien from Gosforth is heading to Cambridge to study Economics after gaining an A* in Maths, and As in both Biology and Economics. She is the first in her family to go to Oxbridge.

Molly checked UCAS tracking this morning outside school before venturing in to school to pick up her results.

“My teachers and Head of Year suggested I should go for Cambridge and I was persuaded to apply. I chose Trinity College because it has the best reputation for Economics and I can’t wait to start the course and my studies in October.

“Between now and then I am going to be celebrating with my friends, we’re all off to the Creamfields festival. I’m so excited and so relieved.”

Molly was hard to track down to get her comments as she was in the clearing room helping her friends ring round to secure places at their chosen universities.
