Malala Yousafzai gets into Oxford University

Your gal Malala Yousafzai has announced she'll be attending Oxford University next year.

In March, Malala revealed she had received an offer to study the three subjects at a United Kingdom university on condition of achieving three As in her A-levels, the Telegraph reported.

The 20-year old tweeted, "So excited to go to Oxford!"

But she said she was "excited" about her future and promised to continue "fighting for girls". "But I can't help thinking of millions of girls around the world who won't complete their education".

In 2012, a Taliban gunman shot her in the head but Yousafzai survived.

The Nobel Peace Prize victor will follow in the footsteps of numerous world leaders by studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics or PPE at the prestigious British university.

She joins some of the most famous leaders in the world in studying PPE at Oxford including former Pakistani President Benazir Bhutto, former US President Bill Clinton, Ex-British Prime Minister David Cameron and leader of Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi.

Thousands of students up and down the country have been opening their A-level results this morning to find out whether they will be heading to their university of choice.

Yousafzai on Thursday congratulated other students receiving their results, tweeting "Best wishes for life ahead!"

Among those offering accolades were author JK Rowling and Alan Rusbridger, the former editor of the Guardian newspaper who is now principal of Lady Margaret Hall. Her autobiography was also released which was an instant hit as well.

She was treated at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital and made the city her home, going on to study at Edgbaston High School in Birmingham since 2013. She was also the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize aged 17 in 2014 (See: Kailash Satyarthi, Malala Yousafzay share Peace Nobel).
