A Level Results
A Level results day is a day of nervous anticipation for students as they receive their long-awaited exam results. This year there were some very relieved and happy students at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School as they opened their results.
Marcus Keith was in the School’s reception before 8am, eager to open his envelope. Thankfully it was great news! Marcus was delighted with his grades and will be going to Cardiff University to study Physics. Speaking with the Headmaster after, who himself has a Physics degree, Marcus said, “I’m really happy that I got into my first choice university, all the hard work has paid off.”
Another very happy student was Luana de Giorgio who achieved two As in Biology and Spanish, a B in Italian and an A* in Psychology. Luana has been accepted at the University of Exeter to study Psychology. She said “I’m so happy with my results, and I’m really looking forward to attending Exeter University. I’ve decided to change my subject from Psychology to Human Bio Sciences so I’m waiting to hear if that’s possible.”
Angus Calder was also successful in securing a place at his first choice university. He will be going on to study History at the University of Kent. Angus was delighted with his three Bs in Economics, History and Music and confessed that the last two years of A Levels required a high level of dedication. He said, “I haven’t had much of a social life in the last few months as I’ve been concentrating on studying, but it’s definitely been worth it.” Angus, who was in the First XV Rugby Team, is looking forward to starting his course and getting involved in the sporting side of life at university.
Kat Chacon, a boarder at the School, chose the University of York to study Theatre, Writing, Directing and Production. Explaining her choice of subject, Kat said, “I love the arts but wanted to do something more than Drama, so the course at the University of York seemed to fit exactly what I wanted.” Kat is excited to start the next step in her education and enjoying the city of York, which was one of the reasons for choosing the university.
Headmaster, Mark Dixon said, “These results are a testament to the perseverance and hard work on the part of the students. They did well and the vast majority were offered a place at their chosen university. I was particularly pleased to see that 100% of IT BTEC students got the top grade possible of a starred Distinction.
“The guidance and support offered by academic staff and the Sixth Form team has helped students to find the course and university that is right for them. I would like to wish all our students success as they embrace the new challenge of university life, work or apprenticeships.”
