Top Fakenham Academy performer Ben Johnson, pictured on the right, is off to Cambridge University in October after collecting four A* in his A-level results last week.
Mr Johnson, 18, will study natural sciences after gaining the A* in maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.
On his results, Mr Johnson, who enjoys playing sport and music, said: “I was hoping to pick up two A* so to pick up four was really unexpected.
“I’m not sure what I want to do career-wise at the moment as I’m more of an acdemic person, so I will go to Cambridge and see what happens there.
“I may go on to do a masters course or perhaps even a doctorate.”
