Outstanding A Level Results - a third of all grades A*/A
The Charter School students again achieve outstanding A Level results
Sixth form students at The Charter School are celebrating their excellent A level and BTEC results. A third (33%) of all students gained at least 3 A levels with A* to B grades.
Despite the national fall in the percentage of students awarded A* and A grades, particularly in science subjects, nearly a third (29%) of all grades achieved at The Charter School were A*/A and nearly two thirds (62%) of all A level grades were A*- B. 95% of BTEC grades achieved were Distinction*/Distinction.
46% of grades achieved in Physics A level were A*/A, with 44% in Chemistry and 67% in Further Maths.
Last year’s results put The Charter School in the top 2% of schools for student progress at A level and it looks as if that achievement is likely to be repeated this year. 61% of all A level and BTEC students achieved at least one A grade or equivalent, and 14% achieved all A grades or higher.
It is expected that the vast majority of students will progress to their first choice of university or college for further study, including Oxford.
There were significant achievements across a range of subjects. A*/A grades were achieved in:Geography (67%), Further Maths (67%), Art (56%), Physics (46%), Chemistry (44%), Economics (43%) and Maths (39%).
