A grades pupil may study for another one.

WITH four A grades under his belt Kristian Hallett from Ystrad Mynach is now thinking of taking a gap year - or even another A-level - before heading to study at Oxford next year.

He has already secured a place at Oxford University following his straight A grades in psychology, history, English language, English literature as well as the Welsh Baccalaureate.

The 18-year-old, who is a Cardinal Newman Catholic School pupil who studied at Coleg y Cymoedd, has been accepted to study ancient and modern history at the university's Regent's Park College.

But Kristian is now considering postponing his Oxford entry until next year.

He said: "Opening the results was great, it feels like the reward for all the hard work ahead of the exams and then waiting for the results.

"Now I know that I have a place secured at Oxford I think I might take a gap year. I may even study another A-level at Coleg y Cymoedd, maybe something creative like art.

"I'll definitely be heading to Oxford in 2017 and then I'll see where that takes me."
