One of Smestow’s students has amazed his teachers by achieving a perfect score in his Computing exams.

Ryan Kalirai achieved 300 out of 300 across all controlled assessments and the exam in Computing, which must surely put him among the best students in the country.

Ryan’s teacher, Mr Gildroy, said he was astonished by his achievement.

“The more I look into my data, the more amazed I am by Ryan’s work,” he said. “To achieve 100% in this way is phenomenal, because it wasn’t just one exam, it was across all of the assessed work in the course.

“Ryan has worked very hard, and continues to do so in the Sixth Form, so congratulations to him.”
