A* Grades Increase
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Strong A* grades, 1.6% above the national comparator, have secured high performing students their places at some of the UK’s top universities. In addition AS outcomes saw a significant increase on last year’s results.
High-flying student, Jay Burnett (A*, A, A, A) said, “College surpassed my expectations, all thanks to a great team of science and maths lecturers.” Jay, who will be studying Physics in Bristol, collected his results and a cheque for £1,000, as part of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) bursary at the College.
Jay’s mum Lisa also commented, “The support and encouragement from everyone has been overwhelming, this has been the most positive learning experience for my son.”
Other student university destinations include: Edinburgh University, Cardiff University, Swansea University and Kingston University.
The College also offers online A-level courses for students to study home or abroad. Max Robinson, 28, was more than delighted with his results – B Biology and A Chemistry. Max clearly demonstrates that focus and determination can get you exactly want you want, even when holding down a full-time job with Sign Box in Templeton and volunteering work.
“Online learning was the only route for me as I didn’t want to give up my day job. The A-levels were a combination of online learning and practical sessions held at the College, I am really pleased with my results and I have been accepted by Swansea University to study Marine Biology, ” enthused Max.
The College’s Deputy Principal Dr Barry Walters said: “To maintain a similar performance to last year’s excellent results is very pleasing and confirms to us the quality of our A-level provision and the commitment of our students and staff.”
