Amrita Badanahatti had a shaky night’s sleep as she prepared to pick up her A Level results at Newcastle High School for Girls today.

She had been offered a place for Medicine at Newcastle University and needed to gain two As and a B (a reduced offer after performing extremely well in her interview), and while she was hoping to get the grades for university she was not expecting a full house of A*s.

“It’s crazy, but I am very happy!” said Amrita who is from Benton.

Thinking about the future Amrita said:

“I am going to miss being at NHSG with all my friends and teachers – I have loved the school and how we are such a supportive community – it’s been great. I am looking forward to training to be a doctor as I really like the idea of combining Science with working with people.  Newcastle University’s Medicine course is highly ranked and has the bonus of being close to home.”
