GCSE student Janey Little is celebrating 13 Grade 9 results — the biggest haul of top grades under the tough new marking system.
The 16-year-old pipped ten pupils across the UK who each got a dozen.
She gained her record haul on Tuesday after her 13th exam, Business Studies, was re-marked to give a Grade 9.
Janey, of Clevedon, North Somerset, said: “I’m over the moon. It’s great to see that my hard work has paid off.”
Her proud Business Studies teacher Chris Blake, said: “Janey has been such an exceptional student.
“I was aware business was the only subject where she had not got a perfect 9, despite consistently achieving 9’s in our assessments.
“So I was both confident and praying hard that this re-mark would come up with what she deserved.
“It turns out 13 is lucky for some. She has an excellent future.”
LUCKY FOR SOME
Her other 9s were in History, Maths, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Religious Studies, English Language, English Literature, Music, Latin and Computer Science.
Headteacher Jim Smith said: “This is wonderful news and thoroughly deserved. Janey is a fabulous student, humble and hard-working, as well as kind and brilliant.
“She embodies everything we strive for in students. She also loves learning and a prolific novel writer.
“To become the best performing student in Britain is an incredible achievement. She will have employers queueing up to take her on.”
