Four A* grades at GCSE for 12-year-old Xiaoli

August 24th, 2017

A 12-year-old pupil at Monmouth School for Girls is celebrating A* grades in four subjects at GCSE level.

Xiaoli, who lives in Mitchel Troy, near Monmouth, achieved top grades in biology, chemistry, physics and maths.

Xiaoli is moving into Year 10 at Monmouth School for Girls in September and will follow GCSE and IGCSE courses in a further 10 subjects and A level maths.

She took her first GCSE exams at eight years old when she was still at primary school.

She now has seven GCSES under her belt, including an A* in Chinese, an A in music and an A in astronomy, which she studied via distance learning.

Xiaoli, who has an IQ of 153, said: “I am really happy with my results. I worked quite hard for them but I am proud and over the moon.”

She added: “When I am older I would like to study at Oxford or Cambridge and become an astronaut or a mathematician.”
