Mark Glynn from Newbridge
Newbridge student Mark Glynn received one of the highest Leaving Certificate results in the county this morning.
The Patrician Secondary School pupil received 7 H1's, an 01 in English and a massive 625 points.
"I'm really happy, it was a lot of work but I never really thought I'd get it to be honest", said an ecstatic Mark.
Mark thought English was his hardest exam.
"I dropped to ordinary English in the end because I thought there was no point wasting my time but they were all kind of tough, they all had little challenges", he added.
"Maths has always been my strong point so I was really happy with that."
Mark is now hoping to go on and study medicine in UCD.
