Another year of outstanding exam performance continues Bexhill College's long history of academic achievement and confirms the College's status as the top performing College in the area and one of the best College's in Sussex.
On Thursday 15th August Bexhill College celebrated its 26th year of achieving outstanding A Level results. Yet again, the A Level pass rate increased whilst maintaining 80% top grades of A*-C. This was on top of a high performing set of vocational Level 3 results. Both sets of results are a credit to the students who took their exams this summer.
Results are predicted to exceed the expected national average for both A Level and AS qualifications. Initial indications are that Bexhill College's A Level pass rate for this academic year stand at 99.4%. The College had almost 1000 A Level entries this summer in 44 subjects. In all, 40 of these subjects achieved an impressive 100% pass rate, including Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History, all three English A levels, Politics, Physical Education, Modern Foreign Languages (French, German and Spanish) Further Maths, Film, Media studies, Drama, Music, Computer Studies and Economics. The remaining four subjects achieved pass rates in the high 90s. This is a fantastic achievement for a non-selective College which prides itself on being open access and providing opportunities for students of all abilities.
All A Level exams are now linear and increasingly challenging. Many students at Bexhill College were taking eight to ten demanding exams over a two to three week period during May and June.
There were many incredible individual achievements across a whole range of academic and vocational subjects. As usual, a significant number of students achieved straight A/A* grades in all exams taken.
Alongside A Levels, 270 students completed an Extended Diploma this summer. An Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A Levels and lead to places in top universities These results have also been excellent with many students achieving triple distinction stars which is equivalent to three A* grades at A Level.
College Principal, Karen Hucker, commented:
"Yet again, our students have produced outstanding results which reflects an incredible amount of hard work by students and teachers plus a lot of support from parents. We are delighted that so many students achieved the success they deserve with us at Bexhill College. These achievements are particularly impressive given the challenge of linear A level exams and the need to be able to perform well under exam conditions. These results will provide students with significant opportunities in the future and we celebrate each and every individual performance.”
These results conclude another successful year for Bexhill College as the College continues to go from strength to strength.
The College's continuing success has led to strong applications for September from young people in the area and from further afield. The College is looking forward to providing them with outstanding opportunities and ensuring high levels of success over the next year.
