Holy Trinity School’s deputy head girl, who wants to work in human rights, has got into the University of Cambridge.
Sabrina Crow, 18, was accepted on the prestigious university’s law degree after she got an A* in English Literature, As in Mathematics and History A Levels and an A* in her Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
Sabrina, of Chiddingley Close, Furnace Green, got her grades at her school yesterday (August 13). She said: “I worked nonstop for months, just revision revision revision and it’s paid off clearly.
“I want to go into human rights.
“I just want to do something to help people.”
She said she cried with joy after she saw she had made her offer to read law at Kings College on the UCAS website.
She said: “I’ve always wanted to go to Cambridge because it’s such a beautiful place and it’s the best university in the country.”
Her entry requirements were an A* and two As at A Level.
The page did not tell her what her grades were.
She said: “I was thinking I must have just scraped it.
“I knew after my exams it would be really close.
“Luckily it leaned the right for me.”
She added: “I cried my eyes out, I knew I would.
“I just didn’t want to disappoint people. A lot of people were like I know you can do it.
“I wanted to make my family proud.”
Sabrina said her EPQ essay was on whether the age of criminal responsibility is reasonable.
She argued that it should be raised from ten to 12.
