Malala Yousafzai was just one of the thousands of youngsters across the UK, nervously waiting for their A Level results today.
The youngster, who won the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17, received great news as she discovered her grades met the requirements to study at Oxford Univeristy.
Malala will be studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the prestigious university, and tweeted her delight.

Malala became a global name when she was shot in the head by the Taliban and flown to England for treatment, where she ended up attending school and performing incredibly well.
The intelligent young woman emerged as an anonymous advocate for girls’ education – at the age of just 11, Malala wrote a blog for BBC Urdu about living in Pakistan’s Swat Valley under Taliban rule in 2009.
Sadly, it was her passion for education which led to her being shot. When the Taliban were driven from her home town, she came out of the shadows to argue in public that girls should be allowed to go to school.
Malala has thrived since arriving to the country, and as well as winning the Nobel Peace Prize, became a UN Messenger of Peace.
A few years ago, Malala was shot for fighting for women's right to education. Today she got accepted into Oxford University. So much respect
