A Welwyn Garden City teenager is hoping his outstanding A-level results will help him achieve his dream of saving and improving the lives of people who suffer from genetic disorders.

Scott Wilson, 18, picked up his results this morning to be greeted with an A* in physics, an A* in biology, and an A in maths.

The youngster will be going to University College London (UCL) to study the biology and chemistry.

The Stanborough pupil is particularly interested in biology and hopes to one day work in genetics.

Scott told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “I’d love to do my bit to change the world and work on genetics in the hope that I can help people who have genetic diseases.
