Singing student's sweet success
A singing student who achieved ten top grades in her GCSEs regularly performed to large internet audiences in the run up to her exams.
Tasneem Mahmud, who attends Woodford County High School, appeared on web-based TV station Channel S, one of the most viewed Bengali channels in the UK.
Miss Mahmud will now study biology, chemistry, maths and art at A-level after achieving 11 A* grades and an A in additional maths.
She then hopes to study medicine at either Oxford or Cambridge.
Describing the moment she received her results, Miss Mahmud said: “I couldn’t take it in.
“I had to ask my teacher to decipher my results for me. I started crying because I couldn’t believe it.”
Proud parents Tarique and Mursalima Mahmud, of Roding Lane South, Redbridge, said they were delighted with their daughter’s achievement.
Mrs Mahmud, 39, said: “She’s done really well.
“We are very proud of her.
“She worked really hard and she never had extra tuition.”
Miss Mahmud is expecting to perform on Channel S again in the autumn at www.chsuk.tv
