A Level Results
Every year, A Level results day is one of nervous anticipation followed by delight for students as they receive their long-awaited exam results. This year was no exception and there were some very relieved and happy students at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School.
Oscar Brown achieved his ambition of a place at Queen’s College, Cambridge to read Natural Sciences. Oscar, who achieved 3A* and an A, said “I was fairly confident that I would get the grades, but there is always a bit of uncertainty as there were some questions that didn’t go quite as I had wanted them to.”
Ben Barry will be going to Bristol University to read Veterinary Science and will be the school’s first student vet since the Sixth Form opened in 2010. He is delighted to have gained a place to embark on the 5-year course of study “I genuinely had no idea how I would do in my A Levels, but I did pretty well – I can’t complain” was the understated comment from Ben.
Head Girl, Katie Taylor achieved an A*, 2As and a B and will be going to Bristol University to read Psychology “I’m really relieved to have got into my first choice of university” she said.
Headmaster, Mark Dixon said “There have been many individual success stories today, and underlying these was the hard work and commitment on the part of the staff and the students themselves. This truly has been an exceptional year, with many students far exceeding their predicted grades. It is wonderful to see that the vast majority of our students have achieved a place at their chosen university.”
The number of high grades achieved by students increased this year with 25% of passes being awarded a grade A* or A, compared with 20.5% in 2016.
