Boston College celebrate amazing A Level results success
Boston College staff and students are celebrating this year’s amazing A Level results!
The dedication, high standards and resilience of the students and A Levels department is clear from the excellent pass rate achieved despite the challenges faced during another academic year working through the pandemic. This is evident with 49% securing the highest grades of A*/A/B, leading to an overall pass rate of 100% for the sixth year running.
After spending parts of their A Level studies, learning remotely from home, and not having the opportunity to sit the exams they have worked incredibly hard for – over 80% are progressing to Higher Education with them all securing places at their chosen university, whilst others are excited to progress directly into employment and start their dream careers.
This year’s A Level results have been calculated by taking in consideration a wide range of evidence including student’s non-exam assessments and mock grades.
After achieving a fantastic A in English Literature, A in Film Studies and A in Media Studies Rheanna Arbon said, “It feels amazing to have achieved the highest grades I could have hoped for! I have secured my place at University of Kent to study Cultural Studies, Media and Journalism.”
Another Boston College success story is Danny Blakey who achieved an amazing B in Film Studies, B in Media Studies and B in Sociology. Speaking of his results, Danny said, “I am very happy and excited! I am progressing on to University of Staffordshire to study Game Design – there was a high grade boundary to get in so I am relieved that with three B grades I have secured my place. Studying A Levels at Boston College has been amazing – it’s helped me to grow as a person and realise that I need to work hard for what I want, which is great preparation for my future.”
Vicki Locke, Deputy Principal said, “Our learners have shown a real determination to achieve the very best results amidst exceedingly challenging times. We are delighted that their hard work, commitment and resilience has paid off. The high proportion of grades at A*/A/B show their brilliant standards of work and the exceptional progress made by our learners despite the disruption caused by the pandemic.”
