“I’D JUST like to say thanks to the school and all my teachers. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them.”
These were the words of Cambridge University -bound Bhagya Raj, who, with three A* grades and an A, was one of the highest achievers receiving his results at Boston Grammar School last week.
The 18-year-old was one of 22 per cent of students at the Rowley Roadschool who reached the top grades in their A-levels and one of many who came out of the library beaming with pride after collecting them results.
Another one of these was Evie Kerman-Fiore, who achieved three A grades in biology, chemistry and maths and an A* in the Extended Project Qualification.
She said: “I’m relieved. The last few exams didn’t go as well as I’d hoped.”
Evie, of Trader Bank, Sibsey, is now going to University College London to study natural sciences. Her brother Giorgio also did well and will be going to Sheffield University to study bio-medicine. He said he was ‘very, very happy’ with his results.
Akshaya Reddy, of Seedlands Close, Boston, achieved two A* and two A grades.
The 18-year-old said she was planning to take a gap year before applying to study medicine. She told The Standard: “I cried when I got my results.
“I was relieved. I wasn’t expecting the two As. I’m really happy.”
Overall, students at the Grammar School achieved a 97 per cent pass rate – just one per cent less than the amount last year.
A spokesman for the school said: “Boston Grammar School has seen sojme superb individual performances.”
