A Levels - Rhyl Sixth
A Rhyl Sixth A-level student is rejoicing after receiving an unconditional offer from Oxford University to study for a combined degree in English Literature and English Language!
18-year-old Sohaib Hassan from Rhyl gained an impressive set of A-levels last summer - English Literature (A*), Drama (A), Psychology (A) and Welsh Baccalaureate (A) - and is currently studying for an extra A-level (in History), over just one year, where he is predicted to achieve yet another a A* or A.
Sohaib moved from Surrey to North Wales in the summer of 2017. Following his three years at Oxford, he is aiming for a career in screenwriting, acting or directing - or the position of Minister for Education! A keen student of drama and fine art, he has performed in countless school plays and musical theatre shows.
"I am really enjoying my studies at Rhyl Sixth. The course and tutors are amazing, and I feel more independent without the loss of support.
"Considering my socio-economic background, I would say if I can do it anyone can. Hard work, ambition and passion will take you anywhere.”
