GCSE Student Gets Straight 9s Despite Chronic Illnesses
Friday 23 August 2019
From Welsh newspaper the North Wales Chronicle:
GCSE student gets straight 9s despite chronic illnesses
A student has battled debilitating chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia to secure nine of the highest GCSE grades.
Alicia Daley, 16, said at one point she thought it would be “impossible” to get the grades she desperately wanted after her diagnosis when she was 13.
Both conditions are long-term illnesses causing extreme tiredness and, in the case of fibromyalgia, chronic and widespread pain.
But the teenager was celebrating with other pupils at King Edward VI High School for Girls in Edgbaston, Birmingham, on Thursday.
Alicia found out she had secured eight 9s – the highest possible grade – and also the top grade in additional maths – a grade A – when she opened her results.
