A*s but no uni place

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

HAB­ER­DASH­ERS’ ASKE’S pupil Josh Good­man achieved A*s in A-level physics, his­tory, Latin and maths.

But the Stan­more 18-year-old will be fill­ing in his Ucas form again this au­tumn af­ter be­ing re­jected by Cam­bridge Univer­sity.

“It’s a lit­tle bit frus­trat­ing that I did so well and don’t have a place,” said Josh, who ap­plied only to Cam­bridge. “But it was a risk and I have come to terms with it. I al­ways knew I was go­ing to take a gap year so I could reap­ply if needed.” He will be ap­ply­ing to a num­ber of uni­ver­si­ties sec­ond-time around and hopes his re­sults “will give me a leg up”.

Josh will soon be set­ting off on FZY’s gap year pro­gramme in Israel.
