GCSE results: Chadwell Heath Academy pupils share their happiness over GCSE results

Three friends in the same form at Chadwell Heath Academy, Christie Gardens, refused to be outdone by each other when they all achieved six A*s and four As today.

The trio of Adam Gadhvi, Mueez Queresha and Lucien Nzotarh were among the GCSE students nervously opening their envelopes to find out their exam results this morning.

Adam, who wants to be a surgeon, said: “As soon as got my results I called my parents and they were really pleased.”

A number of students showed an ambitious nature by not being entirely satisfied with their results.

Gavin Loh, 16, said he’d done “pretty well”, gaining two A*s, three As, three Bs and two Cs, even though he hadn’t expected to get any Cs.
