Shannon, who studied A Level Law, English Literature and History at Coleg y Cymoedd, has been told her overall mark in Law was, in fact, the highest across England and Wales. However, Shannon’s remarkable achievements do not end there, she studied all three A Level subjects, AS and A Level combined, in only one year.
Originally setting her sights on a music production career, Shannon signed up for a BTEC vocational course at Coleg y Cymoedd, with an English AS Level alongside. However, while studying on the English course, Shannon’s academic potential was recognised by her tutor who urged her to take further A Levels, under the college’s fast-track scheme.
Shannon said: “My tutors’ support and guidance encouraged me to apply for Oxford.”
Recognising her outstanding achievements, Shannon was invited to an A Level Awards ceremony, hosted by the WJEC, which celebrates the highest achievers in Wales of the last academic year. Now, Shannon is studying English Literature at Oxford University, with her sights set on becoming a novelist.
