Downe House Sixth Form student Nattasja Kusuma was awarded the very highest grade (D1) for Pre-U Economics.
Nattasja proved herself as a top academic scholar worthy of her place at Cambridge University by matching her D1 in Economics with a D1 grade in Pre-U Mathematics. The Distinction 1 grade is only awarded to the most outstanding students in the subject area and sets her well above other students who may have achieved an A* in a traditional A level. Nattasja also achieved D2 (Distinction 2) grades in English Literature, Further Mathematics and in her 5,000 word Independent Research Report giving her a total of five A* plus grades overall. As the worthy winner of the School's Economics prize and a wonderful member of the Downe House community we have no doubt that Nattasja will make a significant contribution to society in the next stage of her life.
