Students at Aylesbury Vale Academy teamed up with Alice Kinsella, 20, and Amelie Morgan, 18, to win Team GB’s first women’s team gymnastics medal at the Olympics since 1928.

They then had to return to the UK to collect their BTEC results – and that was good news.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain, Jennifer said: “I got a Level 2 Star of Distinction in Business, and we both got a Level 2 Star of Distinction in Health and Fitness, so we are very happy.”

Her sister added, “We just wanted the pass and that’s what we got, so we’re happy to move on.

“We don’t know what the plans are [for celebrations] but I’m sure there will be one. “

The duo, who had their medal with them to collect their exam results, went on to pay tribute to their school for helping them “juggle” the rigors of Olympic training and study.

They added: “It was quite difficult because we tried to integrate the training as much as possible and tried to get those extra hours, but at the same time we needed time to study for our GCSEs.

“But with the help of the school and the help of everyone, we juggled pretty well.

“When we were at the Olympics we tried not to pressure ourselves, just focus on enjoying the moment and not worrying about ‘I’m not doing this right’.

“Whatever happens, happens, you can’t go back and change it, so we just tried to enjoy the experience.”
