Ahmad Nawaz – survivor of Army Public School (APS) attack in 2014, which claimed 144 lives of children and staff – received six A stars and two A’s in his General Certificate of Secondary Education (GSCE) examination.
GSCE is a qualification in a specific subject typically taken by school students aged 14–16, at a level below A level in United Kingdom except Scotland.
Earlier yesterday, Ahmed took to Twitter and proudly announced that “he got 6A*s and 2As in the eight exams he took”, and also thanked his parents and well-wishers for supporting him.
