Life can be stressful on A level day.

Just ask Martha Allerton.

The Windsor Girls School pupil got up early to check her results but her computer would not play ball.

She said: "I did not sleep and was up early to check my computer.

"I tried five time but there was some sort of glitch and it was ages before it worked."

Luckily the result when it finally came up was a good one. Martha had an A and two Bs in geography, history and psychology - she will be going to Nottingham University to study geography.

A levels proved stressful for Isabelle Jackson-Brench.

Her A* and two A grade results were impressive but she said: "I was worried about further maths as I only got an E in the mock exam. I worked nine hours a day on it in the Easter holidays and it paid off."

She plans to study science at UCL - the first in her family to take a scientific turn.

At Windsor Boys School Ben Pilbrow pulled off an amazing four A grade result in maths, physics, biology and his extended project qualification (EPQ).

He is going to Southampton University to study aerospace engineering.

He said: "I would have been disappointed if I had not got into Southampton but I did not look at my results at home. I came straight here because I wanted to see everyone first."

Ben Slade won an A* grade and two As - his A* was for music which is his passion. He already has a diploma on the violin and a Grade A distinction on the piano, as well as belonging to Berkshire Youth Orchestra.

He said: "I will be taking a gap year to do an internship at the Kings International Church in Windsor in the finance department."
