100 per cent marks for GCSE pupil in four science exams
A BRAINY Marlow school pupil answered every single question correctly in four GCSE exams.
Great Marlow School Fabrice Hammerlindl, 16, got 100 per cent in the papers, he discovered yesterday.
The Bourne End resident scooped 10 A* grades overall, including the maximum scores in science exams.
He was one of the stars of results day, as his school celebrated its best ever GCSE grades, against the national trend.
His 100 per cent papers were in papers in Biology, Chemistry and Physics and the ISA, an examined experiment in class.
Deputy Head Linton Nash said: "These are conceptually the most difficult, so it's an amazing achievement."
A stunned Fabrice told the Free Press: "It's amazing, I'm shellshocked to get 100 per cent in these papers."
It was not the first time he has got top marks, though, having also achieved some in last year's modular exams.
"I have the same feeling as last year, it happened then, but I didn't expect it to happen again," he said.
"I have had a lot of good teaching, the teachers have really helped me get these results."
Friend Jason Burnap, 16, of Glade Road, Marlow, was not far behind, with eight A*s himself.
"I feel good, I didn't think I'd get so many A*s, I was expecting a little bit less quite frankly," he said.
Millie Spouse, 16, from Marlow Bottom, was delighted with seven As, and Adam Bonick, 16, from Marlow, was celebrating three A*s and two As.
Top performers at Sir William Borlase's Grammar School in West Street were Georgina Whitaker, who gained 11 straight A*s and Ella Capel-Smith, Emily Cole, Tommy Gale, Akil Hashmi, Rosie Street, Isaac Uden and James Winter, who each gained 10 A* grades.
