Students are a class act
9:00am Monday 26th August 2013 in News
THE 10,250 post-16 students studying at Hampshire’s colleges and sixth forms are celebrating their success following the release of this year’s results for A-level examinations and vocational qualifications.
Provisional results reported by the colleges, school sixth forms and training providers indicated that the students have been successful again this year with 97 per cent achieving the Level 3 standard of two or more A*-E grades at A-level, or the vocational equivalent.
That is a three percentage point improvement on last year’s result of 94 per cent.
Councillor Peter Edgar, Hampshire County Council’s executive member for education, said: “On behalf of Hampshire County Council I would like to congratulate all post-16 students in Hampshire on another year of success.
“Provisional results suggest that we can celebrate an excellent year for post- 16 outcomes across the county with an improvement in both A-level and vocational results.”
Twice as many A-level students achieved outstanding results in their exams this year at Andover College.
With an additional 125 students sitting their exams this year compared to last, 99.3 per cent of students achieved pass rates of A*- E.
Vice principal Martin Simmons said: “I am always incredibly proud to be associated with Andover College but each August, on A-level results day, I am particularly so.”
Wellington Academy, based in Tidworth, saw 26 students securing places at university, double last year’s figure.
Over 30 per cent of A-level grades achieved this year were a B or better, in only the third year of A-level results at the academy.
