Cambridge University Need To Do More #EmekaToCambridge

This petition had 2,399 supporters


Nnaemeka grew up and still lives with his mum and four siblings in a tiny council estate in South East London.  Despite coming from humble beginnings, he has always excelled academically and applied to study Aeronautical Engineering as he has his heart set on becoming a pilot.

Nnaemeka received his A-Level results on Thursday 16 August 2018.  He got A*, A*, A, A in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Further Mathematics respectively.  He never went to private school or had any tutors. He just worked really hard despite all the odds being stacked against him. He got the grades Cambridge were asking for to study Engineering.  Despite being pooled by Cambridge for further consideration, the university did not offer him a place. 

Please help make Nnaemeka’s Cambridge dream a reality. He clearly has the ability.  We write this petition for change.

Cambridge need to increase their admittance of pupils from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. We demand that they re-consider Nnaemeka’s admission.

Your advocacy will make a difference and help us make the change we wish to see.  Please sign this petition and help us spread the word!

Help Nnaemeka go to Cambridge. #EmekaToCambridge #StormzyScholarship
