Teen turns A-Level grades around after being diagnosed with dyslexia
10:00am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
This time last year, Heather Rodwell was in despair after receiving a string of poor grades in her AS-Level exams.
Her teachers at Colchester Sixth Form College could not understand why the bright teenager, who studied hard, was scoring only C and D grades.
But her breakthrough occurred when her parents suggested she got tested for dyslexia.
After the results showed she suffered with the condition, her teachers altered her studies.
Now the 18-year-old is celebrating after securing an A*, two As and a B, which has landed her a place at the East Anglia Medical School.
