One brainbox at Hall Mead School in Upminster joined a unique club this morning - he is one of a select few across the country to achieve Grade 9s or A*s across the board on his GCSEs.
Year 11 student Euan McDonnell achieved nine Grade 9s alongside an A* in further maths, and his results were so good at the Marlborough Gardens school this morning that his mother almost fainted!
Whilst Euan was shocked to see quite how well he had done, his advice to future GCSE students is to revise in small chunks throughout the 2 year GCSE course rather than cramming at the end.
Headteacher Simon London told the Recorder: “Hall Mead is proud of all our students’ achievements this year and there was a grand total of 48 grade 9s across the range of subjects, but undoubtedly, Euan deserves an extra special mention.”
