Mhairi Black, a local MP has passed her politics exam to receive a first class honours degree.

Black won the Paisley and Renfrewshire South seat for the SNP in last month’s general election.

She made headlines worldwide after she overturned a 16,000 deficit to unseat the Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander, but she was still in University studying politics.

The 20 year-old will graduate from the University of Glasgow, along with the rest of her politics class on Friday.

Ms Black said: “I’m really delighted, and looking forward to celebrating the day with my parents and the other students.”

A spokesman for the University of Glasgow said: “We would like to congratulate Mhairi Black, as we would all of our students who are graduating this summer.

“They have all worked extremely hard to earn their degrees and we wish them the very best for their future careers.”
