Students at City of Wolverhampton College were celebrating today after picking up their A Level results.
Students at the college which was recently graded as good by Ofsted, achieved an excellent 85% pass rate overall.
Results showed a 100 per cent pass rate in 13 A Level subjects, including A2 Chemistry, A2 English Literature, AS History and AS English Language. An impressive 75% were awarded A*-B in A2 Sociology.
Among the achievers was 18-year-old Natalie Bissell, who is enjoying a gap year before university after picking up grades of A*BB.
She said: “The teachers at college were so lovely and friendly. I wasn’t expecting these results and I’m so happy.”
Faeza Jiva, who achieved A*AB is now looking forward to studying Science at University. She said: “I’m overwhelmed with my results. I didn’t expect an A, let alone an A*.”
Meanwhile Dan Cudderford, age 18, is moving on to his second year of A levels after gaining ABC.
Dan, who took a year out after finishing his GCSEs, said: “I left school after Year 11 as I wasn’t sure what to do next. I realised I wanted to go to university so enrolled at college as it had a good reputation for A Levels. I’m really happy I gave it a shot and my results are so much better than I thought.”
Curriculum Manager for A Levels Sally Slater said: “Yet again the college has received a great set of results. Our students have done fantastically well across all subjects, reflecting the hard work that they and their tutors have put in over the last two years.
“We wish them all the best as they move on to university or embark on their careers and look forward to hearing of their future successes.”
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.
