Nicky Jecks 26th May 2009
Nicky Jecks
From school drop-out to five star student

Nicky Jecks left school an uninterested 16 year-old with few GCSEs. 13 years on, she now has four children, and hopefully a place to study medicine at Cambridge this Autumn. She is currently sitting her 'A' levels, having consistently achieved high grades, despite unexpectedly delivering her fourth child alone at home during her studies. She has now won an 'Adult Learner of the Year' award and reveals to Jane how she managed it all.
