A Level results: Amazing individual stories as west London students head to Oxbridge and beyond

Among the pupils celebrating at Ark Burlington Danes School in White City was an Olympic hopeful and a teenager who did not speak a word of English 10 years ago.

Suhayb Hirsi, 18, moved to the UK from Somalia in 2007. At the time he spoke no English, but since then he has mastered the language and excelled in his A levels. He got three A*s and an A and is now planning to study computer science at University College London or Imperial. He said: “I will call my family back home and tell them the results. They will be pleased.

“It’s a great achievement and I’m really happy with it.”

Mabast Hussein, 18 and from Ladbroke Grove, will study theoretical physics at Imperial after receiving two A*s and an A. He hopes to be competing in the 2024 Olympics when Brazilian jujitsu is added to the Games. He said: “I wanted three A*s but I’m happy to get into my first choice university.”
