In 2014, Malala became the youngest victor of the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her continued fight for the right of all children to education.

Her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai, took to Twitter to list Malala’s grades which include A*s in GCSE and iGCSE maths.

The accomplishment isn’t bad for a teenage peace activist juggling her recovery from a Taliban assassination attempt, all while campaigning around the world for children’s education and women’s rights.

Ms Yousafzai now attends Edgbaston High School, an independent girls’ school in Birmingham.

However, she’s still like most other teenagers in that she has to sit her exams at her school in Brimingham, and after taking her GCSEs this year, she got her results this morning.

Malala was shot by the Taliban after writing a diary about life under their rule in North-West Pakistan.

Malala, who was 15 at the time, was shot at three times.

She was treated at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital and made the city her home after the gun attack in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. She has also received several honorary titles and recognition from prestigious educational institutions around the globe.
