Islington Art and Media School pupils rushed to Turle Road at 9am to open their results, and there were happy faces all round.
Alison Romanova, 16, got two A*s, four As, four Bs and a C. She said: “I feel fantastic. I was confident after the exams but as the summer went on I started to feel nervous. But now I have officially got them, it’s cool.”
Alison, who will study chemistry, biology, English literature and art at A-level, but is still deciding which sixth form to attend, was particularly pleased with her B in maths.
She explained: “For the second paper, I had a horrid migraine so I was in and out of the exam hall. It was a real struggle, so I was expecting a D! My maths teacher will be very pleased.”
Aine McMenamin, 16, wowed teachers with her seven A*s and three As. She will go on to study geography, classics, English literature and Spanish for her A-levels at Woodhouse College, Finchley.

She said of her results: “I thought I would be getting Bs and Cs! I thought my coursework wasn’t that good. My mum made me breakfast this morning but I couldn’t eat as I was so nervous. I can’t really believe the results I got.”
Ayfer Dabar, 16, played it cool with her six As and four Bs. It included an A at AS-level Turkish, and she said: “I’m content. I wasn’t expecting to do so well. I didn’t want to open the results but I feel good now. It wasn’t that scary after all.”
