A student who was diagnosed with cancer part-way through his A-levels has secured top grades in a string of subjects.
Tom Woodward, aged 18, underwent three cycles of chemotherapy in the middle of his exams after being told he had testicular cancer at Easter.
The diagnosis failed to deter the teenager from keeping on top of his studies at independent Brighton College.
He went on to gain an A* in psychology and As in history and English to secure a place reading history at Bristol University.
We spoke to the following students at Brighton College:
Tessa Hutchinson, who studied Politics, Economics and Maths and got 3 As.
Katy Lucas, who studied Philosophy, Psychology and English Literature. She got 2 A* and an A.
Hector Bunt, who studied Maths, Physics and Politics and got 2 As and 2 Bs.
A Level students at Brighton College opened their results this morning, but they has a lot to celebrate. This year around 95% of students got grades A* - B.
A website which promotes alternative options available to students who have finifhed their A Levels says students should 'bide their time and really think about their options'.
