COLLEGE PASS RATES INCREASE DESPITE TOUGHER EXAMS

24th August 2017

Students at City of Wolverhampton College are celebrating another great year of GCSE results, despite new tougher exams.

Youngsters at the college achieved a pass rate of 96.9%, up more than 5% on the previous year’s figures, with results for English shooting up by almost 10% to 99.5%.

The other stand out success was in the sciences, where students achieved a 100% pass rate in Biology, Physics and Science.

Vice Principal for Curriculum and Quality Kirk Hookham said: “Despite the major overhaul of the exams this year, with a tougher grading system and more rigorous exams our students really rose to the challenge.

“We are extremely pleased with these results, which come on the back of our best ever A Level results, and I’d like to congratulate all our students on their success and look forward to welcoming them back in September.”
