Pawan Matabadul, of Gorseway, Rush Green, was “happy” to achieve four A*’s in chemistry, physics, biology and statistics as well as a B in English literature and Cs in English language and further maths.
He had taken GCSE maths at the age of 13 last year and achieved an A*.
He said: “I am pleased with my results since I did pretty well.”
