Girls shine in STEM at A Level
GSA girls are shining when it comes to today’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) A Level results. Many of them have plans to continue their STEM studies at university and beyond that in their career.
Karolina Prylinska (Mayfield School) has a remarkable five A* grades in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics and Polish. She will now read Medicine at Selwyn College, Cambridge.
Eve Ainscough from The Mount School, York, has four STEM A* grades. She plans to spend a year volunteering abroad with a medical organisation before making her application to medical school in early autumn.
Georgina Hopgood (The Maynard School) has gained 3 A* grades and 1 A, plus an A* in the Extended Project Qualification. She is going on to study Veterinary Science at the Royal Veterinary College, London.
Twin sisters Tilly and Ella Worlidge (pictured) are former head girl and deputy head girl at The Kingsley School. Tilly has A* grades in chemistry, maths and further maths and Ella is celebrating an A* in maths and A grades in biology and chemistry. Their head teacher, Heather Owens says: “Year after year I am thrilled with the girls’ academic success – this year I am especially pleased that Kingsley’s proportion of A* grades has doubled and especially in science subjects.”
