Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai who said famously in December 2016 after attending the interview in The Oxford University mentioning "the hardest interview of my life" who further added "I just get scared when I think of the interview", is finally going to Oxford.

She said earlier this year that she had been offered a university place contingent on her exam results but did not reveal the institution.

On Thursday, the 20-year-old Malala took to social media to share her excitement over her acceptance to the prestigious university.

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. "Best wishes for life ahead!" she said in a tweet. It would seem she has got the grades that she required.

Bitcoin, which hit an all-time high of $4,480 in the previous session, was little changed from Thursday's close at $4,259.91. One liberal counter-protester was killed and at least 19 others were injured when an OH man rammed them with a vehicle.

The girl power icon will be studying Politics, Philosophy and Economic (PPE), a course that combines the three disciplines and known for producing a number of notable graduates such as Aung San Suu Kyi, another Nobel Peace Prize victor and Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan, where Yousafzai is originally from. PPE is also one of the prestigious university's most over-subscribed courses.

Malala was shot in the head on her way home from school after writing her anonymous diary about life under Taliban rule in the Swat Valley of northwest Pakistan. "We are grateful to Allah and thank you to al' those who support Malala for the grand cause of education".

In April, Malala was made the youngest ever UN Messenger of Peace.

In 2014, at age 17, Malala became the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and has since become a symbol for the fight for human rights and education.
