Malala Yousafzai gets into Oxford to study PPE

Malala Yousafzai says she is "so excited" after being accepted to study at University of Oxford.

And today, as students around the United Kingdom received their A-level results, Malala confirmed she is set for Oxford University.

Notable Oxford alumni include Pakistan former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and Myanmar's pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi as well as former British Prime Minister David Cameron and his one-time Labour opponent Ed Miliband.

The Nobel Prize laureate, who was shot in the head by Taliban for her ambitions a few years back, confirmed the tidings by tweeting out the message she received from her new university.

She had received a conditional offer from the prestigious university earlier this year.

She was treated in Birmingham, where she remained, and stayed for her GCSEs (she got 6 A*s and 4 As) and then A levels.

In April, Ms Yousafzai was been made the youngest ever UN Messenger of Peace.

More than one in four A-level entries resulted in at least an A grade this year, the first rise for six year in the proportion of top passes awarded. Some are taught one-to-one.

The excited 20-year-old tweete: So excited to go to Oxford! Its current principal is Alan Rusbridger, former editor of the Guardian.
