Linda secures University of Oxford place after superb A-level results

A Chinese boarding pupil at Rydal Penrhos has confirmed her place at a world-renowned University after an exceptional set of A-level results.

Linda Wang, an Upper Sixth Form pupil at the school, will now take her place at the University of Oxford later this year, where she will study Mathematics.

The 17-year-old achieved an A* grade in Mathematics and Further Mathematics, in addition to attaining an A in Chinese and a B in Chemistry.

It has been an academic year littered with fine achievements from the 17-year-old, who managed to secure a Distinction from the UKMT Girls' Mathematical Olympiad alongside fellow pupils Emily Li, Imogen Camp and Vivia Li.

She was also part of the Rydal Penrhos quartet that won the regional heat of the UKMT Senior Team Challenge thanks to an impressive score of 160 out of a possible 180 points to reach the national finals in London later this year.

Linda also secured a Gold certificate from the UKMT Senior Challenge and qualification to the British Mathematical Olympiad to round off her accolades to date.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Linda’s progress since she arrived at Rydal Penrhos is a testament to what can be achieved when you fully embrace all areas of boarding school life, and she is thoroughly deserving of her place at Oxford University where I am sure she will be a great success.

“I would also like to thank our hard-working staff who have helped Linda and every pupil under their care to achieve their lofty goals during what was a record-breaking year of A-level results which we are absolutely delighted with.”
