Llandovery College students are celebrating another year of excellent A Level and BTEC results with over 51% (51%) securing the much coveted A*-A grades with 24% (19%) achieving an A*. Students, parents and staff were delighted with the overall results which were; A* 24% (19%), A*-A 51% (51%), A*-B 74% (65%), A*-C 91% (86%) and A*-E 100% (99%), last year’s results are in brackets.
Llandovery College Warden, Dominic Findlay, said:
“I am delighted with this year’s results, which have been accredited via both an internal assessment and external moderation process. Students and staff handled the Covid 19 period with much credit ensuring that courses were completed and that the College sent exam boards hugely detailed evidence for each student across all subjects.
Our top performing students gained 3 A*s, 2 A*s and an A, 1 A* and 2 As and a host of other students achieved a minimum of 2 As and, as a result, we have seen our A*-A percentage hit 51% meaning that half our students results were at the top grade tiers this year. This is a fantastic achievement, especially when you consider their commitment to our substantial co-curricular programme throughout their two years in Sixth Form.
Students have gained places in Russell Group universities, Medical Schools, some the world of professional sport, whilst others have decided to take up apprenticeship opportunities or delay their entrance to university for a year.
We are delighted to announce that all our Year 13 students have gained their first choice university place which is a record for the College.
At such an incredibly important moment for all concerned we wish all our leaving Year 13 students the best of luck in the future as they take their next step along their future career path.
Finally, I would like to thank all staff, students and parents for dealing with the assessment process which required staff to undertake the role of the exam boards creating huge additional workloads at the end of an incredibly challenging year.
Students stay safe and hopefully you will be able to enjoy more freedom in your next step of education or world of work. Good luck!”
