Author: By Tom Wilkinson, Press Association

Amelia Al-Qazzaz, 18, was turned down by Oxford University despite her
remarkable achievement, and will take physics at Imperial College, London,

The Teesside High School pupil, from Ingleby Barwick, Teesside, picked up As
in biology, chemistry, French, further maths, sport and PE, to add to the As
she has already achieved in physics, maths, computing, business studies, and
general studies.

She completed her GCSEs by the age of 14, achieving 13 passes at A or A*, and
then entered the sixth form at Teesside High School.

She took five A-levels early but was still too young to go to university, so
continued at the independent school in Eaglescliffe.

As well as excelling academically, Amelia was the school’s sports captain and
performs publicly on the piano and violin, for which she has achieved grade

Headmaster Tom Packer said: “We are thrilled for Amelia. I have had the
pleasure of teaching her and she really is an outstanding student who will
be able to go far in whatever she does.”
