Students at Sheffield College were among the first to collect their A-Level results – eager to confirm their places at university.
They turned up at the Hillsborough campus at 7am to find out how they had done, with principal Heather Smith welcoming the teenagers back.
Bridie Hamilton, aged 19, from Woodhouse, became the first member of her family to be offered a place at university with her A in environmental studies and Bs in English Literature and Geography.
She plans to attend the University of Sheffield to study physical geography.
“It feels amazing, it has been two years of hard work so it is good that I am in. My family is very proud,” she said.
Molly Wilson, 19, of Kelham Island, has three grade Bs to her name in English literature, fine art and photography.
She is planning on taking a year off to help run vintage shop TNB Indie Arcade, in Shalesmoor, with her mum.
Molly plans to help expand the business but said her results are a back-up.
