Katie Tiesdell’s worry about her Biology ad Spanish GCSE results was for naught as she learned today she had gained a Grade 9 in Biology and Grade 8 in Spanish.

She quickly ripped open her results envelope this morning at school to reveal a string of top grades included in six grade 9s.

Katie said: “I was shocked but a good shock. My mum was with me but because she didn’t have her glasses with her so I had to read the results out to her – it was very emotional!”

Katie will now take A Levels in Maths, Chemistry and Politics.

“I chose Politics because I really like essay writing and to thought it would be a good way to balance Chemistry and Maths and give a rounded set of A Levels – and of course I am really interested in Politics.”

Katie says she has “no idea” about plans after Sixth Form at NHSG but that she is “excited to be more focused on her subjects rather than what the Government wants me to study”. It definitely sounds as if Politics A Level is a good choice for Katie!
