A student with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has won a place at university after being allowed to sit her A-levels at home.
Katie Livings, 18, achieved an A* in Extended Project Qualification writing about the illness she has suffered for the last five years, As in History and French and a B in English.
Those strong grades will allow the teenager from Clifton, York, to take a place at the University of Kent to study Law and French Law.
She thanked the staff at The Mount School, York, for supporting her through her illness.
Katie said: “I was not expecting those grades so I am really happy.
“I missed a lot of school but they were so good and really supportive.
“They let me take my exams at home and very kindly some teachers came to invigilate.
“I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them and their support.”
Katie’s condition has improved over the summer and she intends to start at university this year.
