An 18-year-old from The Sixth Form College, in Colchester, was delighted after she discovered she had achieved top marks in all her subjects.

Rose Arbuthnot scored four A*s in biology, chemistry, physics and maths and is now able to study her dream course of veterinary medicine at the University of Cambridge.

Moments after hearing the news, she said: “I was surprised when I opened them. It was a bit of a shock, but I’m very happy. Tonight we’re going to go for a meal then have a big night out.”

Rose, who lives in Holbrook, was previously a student at Royal Hospital School.

She will now be heading to Emmanuel College to start the next chapter of her educational career.

Joining her was workmate Madeleine Chia, from Maldon.

She scored three A*s in history, geography and pychology together with an A in geology.
