An Eastchurch girl has achieved a star-studded set of GCSE results – almost matching her sister’s top grades three years ago.

Chindi Ota, of Leet Close, found out she achieved 13 A*s and two As when she picked up her exam marks from Highsted Grammar School, Sittingbourne, last Thursday.

The 16-year-old got the highest grade in English language, English literature, maths, statistics, French, history, biology, chemistry, physics, RE and an ICT qualification worth three GCSEs. The two As were in sociology and German.

She is due to start at the King’s School, Canterbury, on Tuesday to study physics, biology, chemistry, maths and further maths A-levels.

After that the star pupil would like to go to university at King’s College London with the aim of forging a career in cosmetic dentistry.

In 2010, her sister Chidera, who is studying medicine at Cambridge, managed to get 15 A*s in the same exams, but both insist there is no sibling rivalry.

Chindi said: “Obviously I was aiming to do as well as her, or even better, but we have different aspirations as to what we want to be in the future.”

The sisters’ Nigerian-born parents both work in the medical field. Dad Uchenna is a Sheppey GP and mum Mercy is a nurse.
