And 82 per cent got five or more A* to C grades across all subjects.

Ellen Watts, of Woodside Road, in Bridgemary, was delighted with her grades, getting eight A*, three A and one B.

The 16-year-old will go on to study at Bay House School Sixth Form.

She said: ‘It was lots and lots of hard work.

‘I’ll be staying here for the sixth form studying physics and maths.

‘I want to be a cosmologist studying astrophysics.’

Friend Callum Nicholson, 16, of Avercliffe Road, in Gosport, said he did better than expected.

He was surprised to get four A*, two A, four B and one C grade.

He said: ‘I wasn’t expecting the As in French and German.

‘I don’t know why I took both of them, I never felt particularly strong in both at the same time.’
