Students at Barking and Dagenham College have been celebrating their BTEC results.
One of the students, George Reece from Dagenham, had a lot to celebrate after he secured triple starred distinctions in his BTEC in IT.

George said: "In 2016 I unfortunately got some of the lowest grades for ICT. Fast forward to 2019 and I have just achieved a D*D*D* grade (all 18 units with distinctions) in BTEC level 3 IT.
"On top of that, I was awarded ICT student of the year. It's been a very successful two years at Barking and Dagenham College."
For the 19-year-old it was the climax of a very successful time at college. Earlier this year, he led a project team to win a competition run by the Career Colleges Trust in partnership with Amazon Web Services, Samaritans, London Sport, Marylebone Cricket Club and ukactive, an organisation promoting healthier lifestyles.
IT students were amongst the top performing at the college this year. Of those on the same course as George (the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in IT) 69 per cent achieved at least one distinction grade.
