An emotional Jezell said: “I don’t know what to say - I feel great, I’m so happy.” She added: “I want to go on and study biomedical sciences now.”

Fellow pupil Ladi said: “I was surprised at first but I’m really excited for the future and I’m really happy with my grades.”

Other star pupils included 16-year-old Babalola Ajose, of Forest Gate, who got eight A*s, an A and three Bs, and Samuel Quang, 16, of Romford, taking home two A*s seven As and three Bs.
