After sitting the exam, courageous Ines joined her family to help others whose lives had been devastated by the blaze.

The physics student at Kings College in London added: "We realised about 3am that our flat had been destroyed and despite being at a friend's house, my sister couldn't sleep, so she studied for the exam instead".

"Considering what had happened I think the exam went OK. I want to do A-level chemistry and I need an A in science so I was thinking of my future when I chose to sit the exam", she said. I'm taking chemistry for A Level and I need a good grade, so I decided that I might as well try and do the exam'.

"But she had studied so hard for (the exam) she was determined she was going to take it", Tiago told the Mirror. She then joined her parents and brother in helping their neighbors who had also lost everything in the fire.

The 16-year-old said that when they first heard about the fire, firefighters at the bottom of the tower had told her mother, who had got down earlier, to tell them to stay in their flat and close the windows and doors. "They've been incredibly supportive", Alves said. The flames killed at least 12, injured many more, and destroyed the building, but one teen who escaped remained focused on her future despite the disaster at home.

Ines said that at the time her future prospects were foremost in her mind. She went to school wearing the same clothes she was wearing when the fire swept through her home.

They have reportedly been told they will be contacted within the next 48 hours by the council about their living arrangements.

At least 17 people have died in the Grenfell Tower fire, although the death toll is still expected to rise, emergency services have said this morning.

Around 20 people are in critical care.

Fire crews from north Kensington, Kensington, Hammersmith and Paddington and surrounding stations were at the scene with the fire burning from the second to the top floor.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has said the fire has been declared a "major incident".

After she and her family lost everything in the tragic London fire, this teen made a decision to sit through her exam the next morning no matter what.

The Metropolitan Police have set up a casualty bureau for anyone concerned about their friends and family on 0800 0961 233.
