CONEL student Dennis Ahenkorah is currently being followed around by a camera crew from LWTs This Week.
The Sunday lunchtime current affairs programme is making a documentary about A Levels and is profiling three students from all across London as they revise, sit exams and eventually get their results.
Denis, 21, of Tottenham, says having a camera on his tail isnt putting him off sitting his A Levels in Physics, Maths and Computing.
It doesnt make me any more nervous. The people doing the filming are really nice and we all have a laugh together.
They are only filming when it suits me so I dont get put under extra pressure.
In fact having the crew around might have helped Dennis, who is also CONELs Student Union Vice President, pass his recent computing exam.
The crew wanted him to talk about revision with some of his fellow students while being filmed waiting outside the exam hall.
So Dennis struck up a conversation with a friend who went into great detail about a search application he had researched.
When I turned the exam paper over in the hall, I couldnt believe it. There was a question on that very search application which I wouldnt have been able to answer if I hadnt just had that conversation. I almost laughed out loud!
The only worrying aspect for any of the case studies is having the crew film them pick up their results.
I have to admit thats a bit scary, says Dennis. But well just have to wait and see.
Dennis plans to go to City University to study Business Computer Systems in September. I have to get certain grades and being on TV will make me try even harder!
