A happy day for A Level Students

06 October 2014

Bracknell & Wokingham College students received their A Level results today, with a fantastic 100% pass rate for the fourth year running.

Head of Department, A Levels and GCSEs, Ginette Cox said:

“Our students have worked really hard and produced an excellent set of results. Those who completed their A Levels this summer once again achieved an overall pass rate of 100% - a perfect score for four years in a row now. Most achieved their target grades if not higher.

 

“Everyone has fulfilled their potential and the majority have secured their first choice of university. This is testament to their hard work but also that of their teachers, who support them tirelessly throughout their time with us at college.

“What we offer is more than just exam results – it’s an experience which not only equips them with the qualifications but the skills and personal confidence to be ready for the next stage in their life – be that university or work. They are ready for anything.”

Katie Moreton - Film Studies  - A, Politics - A, History - A

“I’m going to do Politics and Modern History at Manchester University. Fantastic is the only word for it – I’m very very shocked. I’ve had such a good experience at college. The best thing has been the level of support – even when you flag!”

Mum Trish said: “I’m very proud of her but I always knew she could do it.”

 

Katie gets her grades while proud tutors Terri and David and Mum look on.

“College has been a fantastic life-changing experience. I am so excited to see what I get out of my degree and where my future career will take me.” 

Elise Bradbury - Maths - B

Elise Bradbury said: "This time last year I my results were a bit different – I stayed on at sixth form and got a U for my Maths A Level. The teachers here have made a huge difference – I didn’t understand a thing at school but here I had the support and now I do. I am continuing to study Media, Psychology and Biology so that I can go into a career in nursing after a degree at the University of Southampton. Now I am confident!” 

Kara Hook - Psychology - B, Photography - B, Media - C

Kara Hook said: “Being at college has motivated me to work hard – I wasn’t so good at school! I’m so pleased because I have the grades to go to the university I wanted – Cardiff Metropolitan.”

Kara's dad Alan added “College has been great for Kara – it sets you up for university and I think will make the transition much easier.” 

Levi Tippett - Psychology – B, Sociology – B, Media – C

“I’m really happy with my results, I’m over the moon. I’ll probably go out later after work to celebrate. I got my place at Brighton University to study Primary Education as I want to be a teacher.” 

Matthew Sanctuary - Physics – B, Psychology – B, Sociology – B

“I’m really happy to get my place at Portsmouth University. I’m going to study Psychology. The college has been really good and the tutors are always helpful.” 

Nina Horter - Photography – A*, English Literature and Language – B, Sociology – B

“I’m shell shocked, very happy and very relieved. Part of me thought I wouldn’t get the grades I needed but I have and I’m going to Bournemouth University to study Public Relations. I was ill on the day I did my English exam so I brought my doctors note in case the result was bad and I needed to contact the university to prove it.”

Remy Pinto - Physics – C, Maths – B, Human Biology – B

“I’m thrilled with my results, I’m going to Hertfordshire University to study Physics. The college has always been there to help.” 

Shanan Woods - Art - B, Photography - B, Media - B

“I’m going to Southampton Solent University and I didn’t ever think I would be going to uni when I started! College has been really good – really supportive teachers and really fun – I’ve enjoyed it."

Dad Steve Woods said: “I am humbly proud – Shanan has worked hard to get the grades and I’m really pleased she can go on to do what she wants to do.”

There’s still time to apply for September.
