COLLEGE CELEBRATES A LEVEL SUCCESS
Students at City of Wolverhampton College are celebrating after picking up some of the most outstanding A Level results in recent years.
Excited students arrived at the Paget Road Campus to discover that they had achieved a pass rate of 85.8% for overall A Level provision, an increase of 7% on last year’s figures.
Results showed a 100 per cent pass rate in seven A2 subjects, including Business, Chemistry, Economics, English Language, Geography, History and Physics, with five students on the Business course achieving an A*.
Among the achievers was 19-year-old Rich Jones, who is off to Cardiff University to study History and Politics after picking up grades of A*BB.
Rich, who left a private grammar school to come to the college, said: “It’s a massive relief to get the results I need to go to university. The tutors have been brilliant and have helped me loads.”
Gurmeet Kaushal, who achieved BBB in Biology, Chemistry and Maths said he was delighted with his grades.
The 19-year-old, who is off to Aston University to study Biomedical Science, added: “I went to sixth form at school but didn’t get the results I wanted, so I’m delighted to get these grades at college.”
Curriculum Manager for A Levels Sally Slater said: “I am extremely proud of all our students who have worked so hard to achieve a fantastic set of results. The majority of our students have now gained a place in their first choice of university, while others are moving on into employment.
“I wish them all the very best and look forward to hearing of their future achievements.”
The college offers a range of A Levels through WVSixth, its specialist provision for school leavers, which is preparing to receive students who will start their A Levels in September. Places are still available for some subjects. For more information on courses ring 01902 836000.
