Renowned activist for women education Malala Yousafzai has successfully been accepted to Oxford University for undergraduate studies after acquiring her A-level result.
The 20-year-old, who now lives in Birmingham with her family, will be studying philosophy, politics and economics.
After surviving the incident she continued to campaign for human rights and became the youngest person to win a Nobel Prize aged 17.
Ms Cole also got all A grades, eventually heading to Cambridge University while continuing her supermodel career.
Speaking to Newsweek in January, Yousafzai spoke of her hopes for university and life beyond.

The market indexes wavered between small gains and losses for much of the morning, then veered lower by afternoon. Gold prices were benefiting as traders favoured safe haven assets, hitting a two-month high of USD1,275.37.
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.
Ms Yousafzai's father, Ziauddin, tweeted: "My heart is full of gratitude. We are grateful to Allah and thank you to al those who support Malala for the grand cause of education".
Famous world leaders to have read PPE include former premier of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto, a heroine of Ms Yousafzai, Burma's pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi, David Cameron and Ed Miliband.
Militants boarded her school bus and opened fire, also wounding two of her school friends.
Last month Malala she described completing her schooling as a "bittersweet" experience. In April, she became the youngest-ever UN Messenger of Peace.
