Murdered teenager who wanted to be a doctor excelled in GCSEs
Wednesday 21 August 2013
A would-be doctor murdered in an apparently unprovoked stabbing achieved top grades in his GCSEs, his headteacher has revealed.
Ajmol Alom, 16, described as “one of our brightest prospects” by his headmaster, died after he was wounded in the thigh in Poplar, east London, on 12 August.
The teenager, who went to Langdon Park School in Poplar, achieved As in maths, science, English literature, and five other subjects; and three Bs in English language, humanities and physical education.
Chris Dunne, the headteacher, said: “One of the careers he was considering was in medicine and these results would have made that a very real possibility in terms of university entrance.”
