The two girls achieved top scores in their A-level results which were published to students across the UK this morning (August 14).

Yvonne of Cecil Park, Pinner will begin studying medicine at the University of Birmingham next September, she said: "I have been at Bentley for seven years and I wouldn't have been able to do it without them, I am really happy I checked them and just started screaming, I thought I would have failed."

Also thrilled to have achieved top marks is Shabri Mehta of Station Road, Harrow, she will begin her studies at University College London (UCL)  next month after achieving three A grades in biology, chemistry and maths and a B grade in EPQ.
