Mike came to us directly from school in Shanghai and made rapid progress in his pre-A-level term in our ITY. He eclipsed this success in Years 12 and 13 through sheer hard work harnessed to natural talent and a sense of ambition. Aside from his final A* grades at A-level he also achieved an 8.0 in IELTS.
He has finished top of his course at UCL three years running, deservedly winning prizes and scholarships in doing so.
Mike is now completing his Master’s at Oxford this year and has heard from Cambridge University this week that he has been awarded a full scholarship to commence his doctoral studies in Biology and Statistics this autumn 2021.
A remarkable journey of superlative academic achievement! Congratulations Mike!
