A student from Dereham Sixth Form College will take up a place to study medicine at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
Jess Parfitt, 18, achieved A grades in biology, maths, and psychology, as well as a B in chemistry.
The teenager will begin her medicine degree at UEA in September, training at Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital, where her mother is a cardiac nurse.
She said: “I’ve really enjoyed it here. I went to Northgate High School and came to Dereham college for sixth form”.
Jess chose UEA after attending “loads” of open days, including the University of Cambridge, and said: “It came down to the course,” which is practical focused.
Dad, Steve Parfitt, said: “We’re all very proud of her, she’s done brilliantly.
“She got all A*s in her GCSEs as well, but she would never boast, and never has done.”
He added: “Lucky I kept her Norwich City season ticket!”
