Hi,

He is a top student. There is no wonder that he has been admitted to Peking University.

Should “There” above be replaced by “It”?

Many thanks!

    “It” would sound much more natural to me and is the more common way of saying it. But “there” is also quite widely used.

    The same expression is used with “little” or “small”.

    I have never heard it with "There's" (= there is).
    For me, the most natural form is "No wonder he's been admitted..."
