Lola lands dream university spot

18-year-old Lola Becket secured a top spot at Durham University to read Japanese studies, having achieved an A* in English Language, an A* in English Literature and an A in Religious Studies.

Lola, from Skelton, said: “When I was little, all of my friends loved watching Disney princess films, but I was more interested in watching Studio Ghibli animations. I’ve always admired Japanese culture and I’m so excited to immerse myself in the language at university.

“I was so pleased with my results as I’d revised really hard and tried to avoid becoming too stressed about the whole process. I think it’s important to give yourself grace if you make a mistake. It’s not the end of the world and you can always try again.”

Course: A Levels – English Language, English Literature, Religious Studies

Previous School: Huntcliff School
