Dudley College Celebrates Improved A Level Results
After a year of hard work culminating in exams, Dudley College's A level students finally received the vital results they needed to move onto university and employment. With the College pass rate once again improving to an impressive 98.3%, over 100 A2 level students are celebrating the college's best ever results success.
With English Literature, English Language, Maths, Further Maths and Physics among the subjects where students excelled, pass rates in other subjects such as History, Communications & Culture, Fine Art, Accounts, Business, Sociology, Film Studies, and Sport Studies, have once again been very successful this year.
The number of students achieving those all-important high grades has also improved, with 68% securing A* - C, and amongst these successful students are a number who have attained A* in several subjects including Maths, Communication & Culture, Photography and History.
The 100% pass rate in 23 of the 26 subjects at the college is an indication that the range of A levels on offer together with the quality of the teaching and support available have made it possible for some students who may not traditionally have considered A levels to succeed and progress onto higher education.
Lowell Williams, Principal at the college explain: "We are extremely pleased with these results, especially the improvement on last year's pass rate. Today's results give an indication of the value the college has added to these individuals' knowledge and life skills.
"Our A level provision becomes even more exciting from September when Dudley Sixth, the new multi million pound sixth form centre, opens its doors to over 400 students. We've worked in partnership with five local schools to develop an amazing hi-tech learning environment that offers an unashamed focus on academic excellence. Students planning to study at Dudley Sixth will have the very best educational experts and learning facilities in which to study and succeed.
"Everyone at the college would like to congratulate our A level students and hope their time at Dudley College has given them a solid foundation on which to build a successful future and career."
