Nominator statement(s)

“When unforeseen circumstances arose, instead of withdrawing from the course, she asked if she could continue to learn on-line (from February to May 2021). She attended every remaining session virtually from Pakistan despite the time difference! Not only that, she completed and submitted timed writing and practice exam questions of an incredibly high standard and kept in regular e-mail contact with me. She intends to return to Colchester as soon as she is able to do so safely and to continue with her studies. I think this demonstrates the very high level of commitment she gave in spite of challenging personal and geographical circumstances. An amazing achievement and she will definitely be awarded a high grade in GCSE English from AQA.”
