She told Tribuneonline:
"Prior to writing that exam, I have never done any other Cambridge exams, so it was quite strange to me when I started preparing for it. Throughout July and August, I was in school preparing for exams, I had to do past questions, analyse the maths scheme and read a lot of textbooks. I put in a lot of hard work and sacrifice as I couldn’t do a lot of what I was doing when everyone was on holiday, but I think everything just worked together for my good."
She attributed her success to God, her parents, teachers, and friends who supported her throughout her academic journey.
