A Level Results exceed 99%

Bilborough College students have achieved an impressive 99.2% A Level pass rate, exceeding 98% for the twelfth consecutive year, with 27 of the subjects on offer reaching pass rates of 100%.

A total of 752 students took A Levels in summer 2016 and 9% of entries achieved grade A*.

Twenty-five per cent of entries achieved A*- A, 3% more than the previous year, while over 50% achieved grades A*-B.

78 of the college’s students excelled, gaining 3 or more A and A* grades

Principal Chris Bradford said “We’re incredibly proud of what our students have achieved and the fact that so many of them are now poised to take the next exciting step in their careers. They’ve worked very hard to achieve these results and it’s great to see their efforts rewarded as well as that of the teachers and support staff who work with them.

“We’re delighted that so many of our students have done so well. Some come to us with outstanding GCSE results; we also offer places to those with a minimum of 5 grade C passes and they have achieved some excellent outcomes right across the board. It’s rewarding to see students moving on to such positive destinations at university or into employment.

“Following on from our best ever International Baccalaureate Diploma results in July and a very strong set of BTEC Diploma outcomes this news is particularly encouraging.

“I congratulate all our students. We’re offering in-depth, specialist advice and support to anyone who may have done better than they expected and wants to consider other options or who may have just missed out on their offer and needs to find alternative university place through Clearing over the next few days

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our new Year 12 students when they come to enrol on 25th and 26th August.”
