Daniel Ntuiabane was one of the top performing GCSE students in the island.
The 16-year-old Ramsey Grammar School student was thrilled when he found out on Thursday he had scored an outstanding 11A*s and an A.
It means Daniel, of Grove Mount, Ramsey, is a step closer to his dream of becoming a doctor.
It comes as the education chiefs announced that across the island’s five secondary schools, a record 69 per cent of entries were passed at the higher grades, A* to C.
The A* to G pass rate for full and short course GCSEs was also at a record high of 99.3 per cent.
Monday’s Isle of Man Examiner will include all the results from schools around the island, plus reports and reaction.
