Olivia Dungait was overjoyed to learn that she had achieved three A*s in History Geography and Economics in her A Levels at Newcastle High School for Girls.

She has more than met the admissions criteria for her degree choice in International Business with Marketing at Leeds University.

Olivia said: ”Although I was predicted two of the A*s , I was not prepared at all for these results.  I was ready to go into clearing, and genuinely thinking about what my options would be. It’s so hard to predict how you performed in the examinations and I had my heart set on going to Leeds.

“It’s such a relief and it hasn’t really sunk in that I will now actually be going.  I haven’t a plan for beyond uni yet, I am just going to see where the course takes me and what opportunities it opens up to me.”
