Jack Irvine

Three pupils from Royal Belfast Academical Institution (RBAI) have been left star struck after achieving 34 A* grades between them in their GCSEs.

Jack Irvine and Mond Parissis each were awarded 11 A*s while Omar Helmy clocked up an impressive 12 A*s. All three boys will be returning to Inst next month to do AS and A-Levels.

Jack secured the top grades in maths, further maths, physics, chemistry, biology, English, English literature, French, history, Latin and RE.

The 16-year-old said: "It was a bit of a restless night. it was a nice surprise in the end. I am not sure what I want to do career-wise so I am going to try and keep my options open." Mond, also 16, got his A*s for further maths, biology, chemistry, English, English lit, French, geography, history, maths, physics and RE.

He explained: "I was definitely surprised by the results. I thought I was going to get Bs and Cs." Mond is considering a career in medicine, following in the footsteps of his father.
