High among the stars

MANCH­ESTER KING David pupil Ben Lewis achieved four A* grades to se­cure his place to study nat­u­ral sciences at Je­sus Col­lege, Cam­bridge.

“I don’t think it has re­ally sunk in yet,” said the 18-year-old.

“I’m ab­so­lutely gob­s­macked. I thought I’d done fairly well but it’s one of those things you can never be 100 per cent sure about. To get straight A*s is a sur­prise.” Ben was ner­vous be­fore col­lect­ing his re­sults. “I es­pe­cially thought I might have been on the bor­der­line with my physics pa­per,” he said. He was off to Lon­don to cel­e­brate with friends be­fore turn­ing his fo­cus to univer­sity. “I’m ex­cited about the new chal­lenge.”
