Jacob Lewis dropped out of school at 17 because he was sick of dealing with bullies and wanted to start making money. He landed a job in finance and got his own place, but after working for a few years, "felt he had missed out" when he saw his friends graduate. Lewis decided to go back to school, where an administrator told Lewis that he had a shot at getting into Cambridge. Lewis got an interview, and the school agreed to admit him — if he received top grades in four areas of the A-levels, the UK entrance exams.
