Exams are notoriously getting harder every year, with this year being no different for the 580,000 who sat for their GCSEs this summer. One student who did exceptionally well was Janey Little, who sat her exams at Clevedon School in North Somerset and achieved 13 Grade 9s. It has been made clear by the government that under the new grade system, a Grade 9 is not equivalent to the old A* and is harder to achieve than the previous top grade. Janey achieved her grades in subjects ranging from Chemistry and Computer Science to Latin and Music, with a remark of her Business Studies exam taking her up to Grade 9s across the board. About to begin her A-Level studies, Janey wishes to study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at university, with the goal of becoming a politician.
