A Grade Student Melodie Sets Her Sights On Medicine
Sheffield College student Melodie Maggs is celebrating after achieving top A Level grades. The 19-year-old achieved an A* grade in maths and two A grades in biology and chemistry.
Melodie is planning to apply to university to study medicine next year after taking a year out this year. She said: “It’s the best feeling ever to get these results. I am so happy. All of the hard work that I have put in has really paid off.”
Melodie was home educated. She joined the College at the age of 14 where she went on to complete five GCSEs before progressing onto A Levels.
