teenagers weigh up their options after A-Levels success
from Burnham-On-Sea have been considering their future career
paths after receiving their A-Level results on Thursday (August
Among them is Burnham teenager Tristan Al-Shehab, right, who studied
in the sixth form at Sidcot School in Winscombe.
Tristan, 18, of Marlborourgh Court in Burnham, gained four A-Levels
in maths, economics, physics and further maths.
Tristan said: "I'm going to study economics at University
College London and spend a year of that in North America. I am
really excited about living in London and the States."
Ben Adams, 18, of Briar Close in Burnham, who gained two B's in
History and Business Studies and a C in Accountancy, has decided
to pursue an apprenticeship in accountancy.
Ben, right, said: "I've been in education a long time and
the rise in tuition fees is a big issue for me."
"I thought about it, and realised I could progress up the
accountancy career ladder without going to university, so with
the help of Weston College I'm now looking for an apprenticeship
in this field."
"I wouldn't rule out going to uni in the future but for
now this is the best career option for me."
