Most young people spend two years studying for their GCSEs, but one teenager aced her exams after just two months of lessons.

Cami Wong's achievement is even more outstanding given that she had only recently moved to Bolton from Hong Kong.

The 17-year-old is studying her A-levels at The Sixth Form Bolton, after tutors saw her potential.

Cami joined the college having only just moved to the country from Hong Kong.

She arrived with no formal qualifications, having missed the opportunity to sit any GCSE exams in her home country or in the UK.

After only just two months of lessons, Cami sat her English and maths exam in November and found out she had achieved the A-A* grade equivalents.

She received a grade 7 in her English Language and an exceptional grade 8 in mathematics.

Cami is currently studying A-levels in fine art, graphic design and sociology.

She said: “I am really grateful for the opportunity and support I have received.

"My teachers have been amazing; setting and marking extra work so I could catch-up and sit the exams.

"I was really nervous, however I worked really hard. I’m over the moon with my results. It means I can now progress onto university and study art further.”

The aspiring graphic designer added: “I love my subjects, especially graphic design and fine art.

"I have really enjoyed my time at The Sixth Form and I feel really welcomed. I love how in the UK you have the freedom to choose your own path and study the subjects that you are passionate about.”

The Sixth Form Bolton's November's results of 64 per cent pass rate in English and 41 per cent pass rate in mathematics is said to be significantly above the national benchmark for colleges and Sixth Forms in the country.

November GCSE exams are available for those students who had previously not yet achieved a grade 4 or above.

Julie Parkinson, head of English at The Sixth Form Bolton said: “We are extremely proud of all of our students and staff for these excellent results. The Sixth Form Bolton supports learners to achieve the critical grades needed to progress onto their chosen destination and secure career opportunities in the future”.
