Hannah said:

“I’m absolutely buzzing.  My mum has been up all night, but I’ve been quite chilled.  I am delighted with my grades and looking forward to going to Loughborough – I’ve already been contacted about pre-season netball training two weeks before the start of term. I’m doubly delighted because I didn’t think the exams had gone as well as I’d expected.”

Hannah chose Sociology and Criminology at Loughborough because the course was ranked number one in the country and the University is renowned for its sporting facilities.
