A TEENAGER who has already sat his GCSEs has now bagged himself two As in AS level.
Denbigh High School student Dani Campbell was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was at primary school and struggles with reading and writing.
But the 15-year-old, who also has a black belt in karate, has a talent for figures and found out he had two As in AS level Maths.
Last year when Dani was in year 10 he achieved an A* in Maths and a B in biology at GCSE.
Dani’s dad, Darren said: “He took GCSE maths last year, he clearly has an aptitude in maths.
“He studied mostly on his own out of class for his AS level as the others in his year are studying GCSEs.
“He would teach himself a lot, but a new maths teacher (Miranda Cookson) who came last year sits with him once a fortnight, she puts herself out to stay with him after school.”
Dani will go onto complete other subjects in GCSEs whilst also studying for his A-level in maths.
He will then continue his education by studying other A-level subjects, to leave high school with about five A-levels.
Darren, an electrician, said: “His teacher spotted that he was really good at math, she’d been fantastic with him.
“If it wasn’t for his teacher spotting he was so good at maths he wouldn’t have got this.”
Dani was congratulated on BBC1’s The One Show last week after he received his remarkable results.
Darren and his wife Pamela don’t know how the show found out about Dani but presume it must have been someone from the family.
Dani said: “It is my dream to go to Oxford or Cambridge, one of the two, to study maths.
“The school and Miss Cookson have helped me quite a bit."
Denbigh High School head teacher Simeon Molloy has praised Dani for his hard working attitude.
Mr Molloy said: "It has been fantastic to see an amazing improvement across the board and Dani is a fine example of this because he's in year ten and he's just got two results in AS level.
"He is very gifted and does have a particular talent in maths and is a potential Oxford or Cambridge candidate for the future."
