Students from Bilborough College achieved an impressive 99 per cent pass rate in this year’s A-Level results along with an increase in the proportion of A*-B grades.
A total of 52 per cent of grades were A*- B, a rise of two per cent from last year, and over 23% of students on an A Level study programme gained grades AAB or better. The overall pass rate has now exceeded 98 per cent for the 13th consecutive year. A total of 671 students took A-Levels, including those taking two A-levels alongside a BTEC Diploma. A total of 623 students took three or more A-levels and 74 (or 12 per cent) of these gained three or more A and A* grades.
Chris Bradford, Principal at Bilborough College, congratulated students on their results.
He said: “Along with the rest of the staff team here at Bilborough I’m delighted that once again so many of our students have performed so well. This has to be one of the most important days of the year for us all – students, parents and staff alike. When everyone has worked so hard it’s great to see that effort and dedication rewarded with excellent results. Of course, as well a chance to offer congratulations today is also about confirming students’ next steps. We’re wishing all of them well for their exciting futures and offering expert advice to anyone who might want to change their plans either because they’ve done slightly better than they anticipated or in some cases not quite achieved their target grades.”
