Mala proves age is no barrier to learning after passing two GCSEs
Mala Balachandran has proved you’re never too old to learn after passing two GCSEs.
The 68-year-old was thrilled after achieving a C in English and a C in maths at The College of Haringey Enfield and North East London (CONEL).
Marla, who is originally from Malaysia, decided to study the GCSEs to "keep my mind busy" and attended every lesson at the College as well as half-term workshops and homework clubs.
She has now been nominated by her tutors for CONEL’s Student of the Year award.
Sheila Rai, Head of School – English and Maths, said: “We’re incredibly proud of all our students and would like to congratulate them all on their GCSE results.”
“Many of their stories are inspirational. They’ve put in a lot of the hard work and dedication to pass their exams, and in Mala’s case shown you are never too old to learn.”
