Kimberley teenagers have revealed their plans for the futures after landing a glut of top A-level marks.

Students at Kimberley School opened their results surrounded by friends, teachers and parents on August 14.

Among the glittering achievers was Alicia Martin-Jones, who achieved A*s in maths, biology and chemistry and one A grade in physics.

She will now go on to study medicine for five years at Birmingham University.

“I got exactly my predicted grades and it’s just what I wanted,” she said.

“I’ll be relaxing over the summer before I get back to hard work.”

The 18-year-old was only just rejected from the prestigious Oxford University but is extremely excited about going to Birmingham.

She said: “I just want it to be September already.”

Many other students did exceptionally well and will shortly be departing to start degree courses at universities across the country in subjects as varied as law, geography, history, languages and music,

Amy Sullivan achieved one A* in psychology and two As in biology and maths and is heading to Warwick University to study psychology.

“I wasn’t expecting it and I’m so pleased,” the 18-year-old said.

Amy has big plans for the future and hopes to one day become a clinical psychologist.

She added: “It’s another three years training after uni but I’m up for it.”
