University of Sheffield
Her first choice of studying Dentistry at Sheffield University is in the bag for Ella after achieving a heady 3 A*s at A level.
Ella is, as she describes it, straying from the family path of a career in medicine – a decision that has been well supported by both her medic parents.
“The fact that the exam system was new and we didn’t know what to expect with the grade boundaries increased my nerves over results. I came out of each exam not knowing how I’d done, it was so difficult to gauge – thankfully I didn’t need to worry.
“The atmosphere is what makes this school special and I am really going to miss it – I’ve been here since I was eleven but I can’t wait to get started at Sheffield.
“Everyone who wanted to do medicine and dentistry at Newcastle High have got the grades and have done really well which makes celebrating my results even better.”
