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.
