100% A Level pass rate for sixth year running

13 August 2015

A Level results day 2015

Thursday 13 August has seen another excellent year for Bracknell & Wokingham College’s students receiving their A Level results with a fantastic 100% pass rate for the sixth year running.

The hard work and determination from students and tutors throughout the year has been proven with an increase in the A*- C grades from 65% in 2014 to 72% in 2015.

Head of A Levels, GCSEs and Creative Arts, Ginette Cox said:

“Yet again, our A Level students have done us proud by producing an excellent set of results. This is testament to their hard work and the tireless efforts of teachers to go beyond standard class-time to provide as many revision sessions as possible.

“It was great to see students studying together outside of class or sitting with teachers when additional help was requested. They have now been presented with terrific results – some students achieving outstanding grades of 2 or 3 A*s.

“We aim to add value to every student that walks through our door so that when they leave they are ready for whatever they set their sights on, be it university or employment.  We can help make that happen.

“We are delighted with the results and celebrate another excellent year for the college and our students who can now look forward to what comes next, be that university or the world of work.”

“I feel really good; all the hard work has paid off. There was a lot of after-hours study groups which were great and interesting and my tutors were so supportive. I’m going to the University of West of England in Bristol to study accounting and finance. I’ve had my place confirmed this morning so I’m really happy.”
