The anxious wait is now finally over for the Sunderland College’s 500 A-Level students who collected their results first thing yesterday morning.
Boston College students are celebrating after achieving a 100 per cent pass rate across all 12 A-Level subjects, against a national average of 98.1 per cent.
Students celebrating particular success include Lesley Chiremba who achieved grade As in Chemistry and mathematics, and a grade B in Geography.
In total, 40 per cent of King’s students achieved an A or A* in at least two subjects.
Andy Christoforou, Headteacher at Abbey College, said: “We are extremely proud to have achieved another strong set of results this year”. Additionally, the Ucas application process is electronic and so students will know if they have successfully gained their place on the course and at the university they wanted, before they get their results.
Principal Deborah Newman said: “We are absolutely delighted with this year’s A-Level results; they are a credit to the hard work of our students and the dedication of the teaching staff”.
The fall, coupled with reforms which mean universities are no longer restricted by a cap on student numbers, means many institutions which still want to fill places are entering clearing in a bid to attract and recruit qualified candidates.
Congratulations also go to Liam Woods, Harry Mandley and Jay Coulson who all achieved three Distinction* grades.
“These results will enable students to embark on degree courses at universities across the country with a number receiving scholarships at Aberystwyth and Bangor”.
Headteacher Delia Martin said: “These incredibly positive results represent the hard work of our students throughout their time at Benton Park Sixth Form”.
One of the most nerve-wracking days of student’s lives has arrived, A Level results day. Many universities will make unconditional offers based on the predictions before the student sits an exam.
The grade boundaries are normally released online the day before candidates receive their GCSE and A-level results, but it was changed to be published on the same day this year.
“These results will provide students with significant opportunities in the future and we celebrate each and every individual performance.
I would also like to thank all of our staff for their continued and unwavering hard work and commitment to ensuring the very best outcomes for all of our students”.
Don’t panic if your results are worse than expected, you have plenty of options.
Almost 40 students applied to Oxford and Cambridge schools with the majority achieving the necessary grades.
