At Ashfield Girls' school, it was an historic day for twins Hollie and Megan Moffett after both were accepted to study at Queen's University.

Hollie was delighted with her grades of A,B and B and is going to study history.

Megan received grades of A, A and B and will study history and archaeology.

Student Emily Greer has aquatic ambitions after being accepted to study marine biology at Queen's University after achieving three B grades.

"All the diving stuff sounds quite cool, but I just want to work with animals. That's just what I want to do," she said.

Ashfield Girls' principal Alison Mungavin, commented: "We're delighted today. The A-level girls have done extremely well, they have excelled themselves and our results are up by 5%."
