One of the victims of a recent acid attack received good news Thursday only moments before she was to undergo further treatment for her injuries, The Daily Mail reported.

Kirstie Trup was informed that she acheived three A*s after receiving her A level results today. She also has a place at Bristol University to read history.

The A-level is an academic qualification offered by educational institutions in the United Kingdom as well as throughout much of the British commonwealth.

BBC Journalist Mistakenly Taken for Jewish Taunted by British Intellectual Commanding She ‘Get Back in the Oven’

The results, “make her one of JFS’s (Jewish Free School) top achievers: she is one of only six pupils at the school to achieve such high grades,” the Jewish Chronicle reported.

Trup, along with her friend Katie Gee, was the victim of an acid attack last week on the African island of Zanzibar. Witnesses said two men on a moped doused the 18-year-olds with acid in what may have been an anti-Semitic attack. The girls were working at a Christian nursery for a 3-week period when the incident occurred.

Speaking from her bedside, Trup’s father Marc was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “Kirstie got the good news before she went into theatre this morning.”

“We found out that she got a place to study History at Bristol University and will be starting in September, she will be very pleased.

“At the moment she is having an operation, a skin graft, and will probably be in hospital for a couple of days feeling a bit uncomfortable.

“At the moment my wife Rochelle and I are waiting for her to come out.

“She is incredibly positive, she is very strong, but we have never had any experience of this kind of thing before and nothing can prepare you for it.”

Gee also received good news Thursday, learning that she was accepted to Nottingham University. Unlike Trup, she went public with the news, tweeting: ‘On the plus side I’m off to Nottingham!”
