RNC Students Celebrate 100% Success Again at A Level

The College is thrilled to announce that students have achieved a 100% pass rate in their A Levels again this year for the third year in a row.

A Levels at grades A-C accounted for 91% of the passes, an increase of 41% on last year, and all students who applied through UCAS successfully got into their first choice universities.

Students who undertook NVQs also performed incredibly well with an 88% pass rate across all subjects, 27% achieving A grades.

In terms of ‘value-added’, which considers students’ performance in light of previous results, the achievement has been remarkable with 100% of students achieving predicted grades or higher, of which 66% achieved better than expected.

Amongst some notable performances was Alicia Jackson, who travelled from Cumbria to study at RNC. Alicia achieved grade C in A Level Psychology and A Level Sociology and a Distinction in the OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate in Health and Social Care. Alicia was delighted with her results and said:

‘I am so happy to achieve these grades, it’s been hard work but I can honestly say hand on heart that without coming to RNC I don’t think I would have achieved this.’

Alicia is going on to Northumbria University to study a BSc(Hons) in Occupational Therapy.

Professor Tamar Thompson, Chair of the Board of Governors, was extremely proud of the Class of 2019 and said,

‘Yet again our students have done so well with another outstanding year of A Level results and will go on to build great futures for themselves. A huge thanks also, to our incredible team of teachers and support staff who are all part of this success story. Congratulations!’

Whilst this year’s A Level results are very pleasing to read, all students at RNC are to be congratulated on their progress whether working towards qualifications, learning independent living skills or developing social skills.
