Once again, Joseph Chamberlain College in Birmingham is celebrating its best ever A-level results this year. For the third year running, the pass rate at A-level is 99% with more students than ever achieving grades A*, A and B.
Tony Day, Deputy Principal at the College said: “Each year, our students do better and better. This year, I am so pleased that so many of them were awarded high grades in their A-levels and will be progressing to their first choice university courses. This is a result of their incredible hard work and the dedication of their teachers; the successes we have seen today are very well deserved. Like many schools and colleges, we were not sure about how the newly reformed AS-level qualifications would go but we have maintained our very high results from last year, which we are delighted with.”
Robert Speers, who studied the new AS-levels in English Literature, History and Sociology, alongside Government and Politics, achieved an incredible four grade As. This was also the case for Lina Dohia, who achieved four grade As at AS level this year. Ifrah Abdulla also achieved an outstanding four grade AS in AS-level Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics. At A-level, Basil Olewa was awarded an A* and two grade As in Maths, Physics and Religious Studies and will be going to the University of Birmingham to study Physics. Joining him will be Maryum Abdullah who will be studying medicine there, having achieved an A* in Maths and As in Biology and Chemistry. Jabar Khan also achieved an excellent set of results with an A* in Psychology and As in History and Religious Studies.
