Malala accepted at Oxford to study Politics, Philosophy & Economics

Malala Yousafzai

Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai has been accepted into Oxford University.

Yousafzai, the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize at 17, said she has been accepted at Oxford to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics.

She joined thousands of other students in Britain in discovering where they will go to university after getting their final school results.

Others to have studied the same course at Oxford, one of the world’s top universities, include former British Prime Minister David Cameron and late Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Yousafzai, now 20, came to prominence when a Taliban gunman shot her in the head in 2012, after she was targeted for her campaign against efforts by the Taliban to deny women education.

Malala, who joined Twitter last month, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

“So excited to go to Oxford!! Well done to all A-level students, the hardest year. Best wishes for life ahead!” she said in a tweet.

A-levels are final year exams for school students. After recovering from the Taliban attack, she attended school in England.

    Biko u guys, how does one get admission to all these ivy league university with a not so good transcript? Asking for a friend who has been afraid to apply to any ivy league university despite studying medicine. Her problem is that to her, her grades are not so good.
